A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump; a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.
-Proverbs 11:28 (MSG)
Lord God, help us not to put our trust in our material possessions, but to walk with You and sink our roots deep in Your love that causes us to flourish.

Pray for a safe ferry flight for MAF’s first amphibious Kodiak, PK-MEE, as it is flown from Papua to its new base in Palangkaraya, hopefully around this date. Pray that this wonderful tool will be used in mighty ways to share the compassion of Jesus Christ in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
