A Note from the Mission Field: Lindsay Schramm

Hello Waters Edge,
This first year in full time missions has been quiet the adventure. My ministry of coming alongside people who are stuck or worn-out and walking with them into truth and moving towards fullness with God has taken me all the way to refugee camps in Greece to the killing fields of Cambodia. It has been a true honor serving with Youth With a Mission and working with people in all different places, facing all sorts of different things.

My heart is to see people walking in fullness and health, discovering who they really are and the future God has for them. Our community raised me and created a safe place for me to grow and now I have the opportunity to teach, train and develop people to be the church to each other on the mission field. Everything I am working towards I learned being a member of Waters Edge.

Right now I am in Salem OR on my training base developing Christian councilors and equipping missionaries with tools to walk alongside of people thru hard things. If you would like to follow my ministry or get involved in what God is doing in the nations please e-mail me lindsayywam@gmail.com

I miss Marquette and all of you,

Please keep me in your prayers,
Lindsay

Sharings from Chuck Tooman
By Chuck Tooman

Augustine of Hippo (born about 354 AD), who would later become known as St. Augustine, was not always a believer in Christ. But no matter where he was living or traveling his mother, Monica, prayed intensely for him to accept Jesus. And he did. At age 33.

 Many years later, writing his Confessions and reflecting on a time of serious illness while living in Rome, Augustine said to God, “[My mother], who knew nothing of this, persevered in praying for me; she was far away, but you are present everywhere, so you heard her in that land where she was, and took pity on me where I was.” Precious.

 Parents, take heart.

Special Speaker- David Nichols
Sunday, February 25th 10am & 7pmDavid Nichols was a Bible college professor and academic dean when he had an encounter with God. He realized that, although successful, he had been leading a hypocritical life and had seen his family fall away from God. He then committed himself to change.

The next step for Dr. Nichols was to leave his secure position and begin ministering in churches on a faith basis for his finances. God blessed him and within the year brought his four sons back to Christ and continues to provide for him financially. Since then, he has traveled around the world preaching and has been particularly used in the gift of healing.

Science tells us that our universe is continually expanding. How can that be? Well, an Infinite God creates infinitely. To do anything other than that would be contrary to His nature, and one thing God cannot be is contrary to His nature. It is all a part of the mystery and the awesomeness of The Infinite One—our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

Psalm 8:1 says it well: O Lord, our Lord! How majestic Your Name through out all the earth [and every where else, for that matter].

Going into the new year we customarily think about things (perhaps even some people?) we’d like to change. Another lesson from Christmas scripture: Mary and Joseph changed the world not by changing other people but by changing themselves. God took it from there.

 One of Our Father’s other children, deeply troubled over a relationship, sought many counselors. Many and varied suggestions and approaches later he was still in a painful place.

 Finally, physically and spiritually depleted, he began requesting of Our Father’s other children, brothers and sisters, one simple thing: “Pray for me”.  Within a short period of time a gleam of light began to appear and break-through began to happen.

 “Pray for me”—the most powerful words we can share with others.
