Inflation continues to rise in Argentina. PriceStats, a specialist provider of inflation rates puts the annual inflation rate at 24.4% and cumulative inflation since the beginning of 2007 at 137%(see article). Meanwhile, our support descends (currently 89%) because supporting churches are cutting back on missions giving or just closing their doors all together. We thank God that He continues to provide for our every need as we trust in Him and Him alone!
In times like these, the example and these words of George Mueller are an encouragement. “God delights to increase the faith of His children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.”
