Joshua's Army Short-term Missions

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9 NIV
Joshua's Army
A body of persons organized to advance the cause of Jesus Christ.

On April 14th Joshua's Army missionary, Yvonne Miller, went to be with Jesus. All of us left behind are sad, but we know that she is where she truly wants to be.

I don't know exactly what I will be doing for the next few weeks but my plan is to spend a lot of time alone with the Lord as well as just spending time with my friends here praying and ministering to me. I do not want to be isolated and just shut down; that would not be healthy at all. I just feel the need to stop the activity and do very little for a while.

Somewhere around the time of Yvonne's memorial service, I became aware that the intensity of the entire time of caring for Yvonne at home, the hospital stay as well as the intensity of the last week in the hospital room had taken a deeper toll on me than I realized. Add to that the many questions concerning the immediate plans for ministry: do I stay at the Center, what is my role now, do we focus on men's ministry, do we do jail ministry, is there something entirely different that the Lord has for me, is there a couple that the Lord will bring to live and work at the Center, and many other questions could be and have been asked, and I quickly feel the need to seek the Lord.

I will say that Maurice told me that he does not see me going back to the Center to live and work there; it would simply be too difficult with all the memories of Yvonne and of our life together there. I agreed with him and said that at this time I have no desire to be there. I just can't do it. Having said that, I also don't want to limit God's ability to heal me by His grace and enable me to do whatever He has for me. So that brings me back to the need for me to just stop and sit in His Presence and receive healing as well as direction. Where do I go and what do I do?

After I leave Kamloops, I plan to go down to Oregon and spend some time with my family and help Jonathan and Danae work on their house. (I don't think I asked them about that yet.) I probably will be back in Kejick Bay by the end of July, hopefully with a plan. During this time I will be in touch with Maurice and Louise to discuss what we are sensing the Lord say.

Even though I feel the need to get away for a while, I still am feeling the wonderful blessing of the prayers of God's people. I honestly don't know how I would do it without you. Thank you so much for supporting me and my family during this time. I would also ask you to please pray for Maurice and Louise as well. They lost a very good and close friend in Yvonne as well as this affecting the ministry that has been their dream and passion for many years. They really are hurting as well.

Thanks again for your support during this difficult time. I will try to do better in keeping you updated in what I plan to do. If you have any questions please ask.
