Things We Did With Reuben.

Psalm 139 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandeth my thoughts afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

Even there shall the hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

i will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God: how great is the sum of them!

If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

.....Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
We have so enjoyed the six weeks that we have had with Reuben. Cutting corn and beans went so much faster:) It was a normal thing to see Reuben studying his Chinese. The weeks just kept disappearing. Now Reuben is gone. Though we all will miss him, We are glad that Reuben is willing to follow where God leads(Even when it means to another country.). Here are some things that you could pray for
1. Unity in the team.
2. Health.
3. Safety.
4. Opportunities to witness in class.
5. Gift of languages.
6. Wisdom of how to use free time.
7. For former Taiwanese friends to come to a saving knowledge of the gospel
May you all have a blessed summer and fall.
