Strength: I analyze things objectively.
Weakness: I’m indecisive.
(6) Strengths and weaknesses  Strength: I’m unexpectedly good at tackling things directly.
Weakness: Sometimes I fixate on things and end up wasting time.

While support raising, I have felt like I’m not good at business, and therefore God put people around me to think about what to do. When visiting churches, it’s truly a joy to meet brothers and sisters who value the ministry and who receive from the Lord the same thing that He has given to me (9) Challenges and joys of support raising After introductions and sending letters, I start to doubt myself and feel down, but when I get support I wasn’t expecting, being able to see God do above and beyond what I had imagined together with my family brings me joy and encouragement.
Right now, please pray that I would listen to God’s voice and trust in the leading of the Holy Spirit. (10) Prayer Requests Pray that, as I go through this short period of time until my needs are filled, I would deepen my trust in the Lord.
