Sandi and I met Paula Reeh in 1974 in San Antonio, Texas. We spoke in a church about our upcoming move to Austria to help with discipleship training behind the Iron Curtain. Afterward, Paula quietly gave us an envelope. I will never forget opening that envelope and finding a generous check – encouragement we sorely needed.
Over the past 42 years of ministry, we received monthly financial printouts from our home office and every month, Paula Reeh’s name has been on the list! During seasons of discouragement, Sandi and I have often spoken about Paula and the host of loyal behind-the-scenes partners like her, whose faithful prayers and financial support keep us in ministry.
Paula is in Jesus’ presence now. Praise God for her example of quiet, humble, faithfulness. May he raise up many more Paulas. – Dwight Ekholm, Vienna, Austria
Please pray for:
- the people of Kurdistan. Many are afraid and want to flee as violence continues and as economic problems mean severely reduced or no income. Pray for Entrust’s Layth I. and Fuad N. who continue to train Christians and need mature Christians to stay in the land; pray as they minister to refugees and proclaim Christ to a desperately hurting population.
- the 12 graduates from our Bible Institute in the Middle East, to know God’s leading and serve him well wherever he leads them; for Matthew and Sarah’s (Bible Institute directors) health, strength and discernment in selecting a new class of students and guest professors for next school year.
- one of Entrust’s Asia teams, experiencing visa problems related to their country of service.
- Entrust staff members who are raising support for the first time or in need of additional support.
