Driven to My Knees

July & August 2012

Driven To My Knees

Abraham Lincoln once said, “I have been driven many times upon my

knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go.

My own wisdom and that of all about me insufficient for that day.”


That has resonated with me personally as of late. Not because things

are difficult, but rather because they are busy and overwhelming. So

much is going on at ServLife, and I find myself struggling to keep up.

There is always more to be done, and I am easily overwhelmed these

days. I am driven to my knees.

In this newsletter we want to give you a quick snapshot of all that is

going on so that you are in the loop and can pray and support what

God is doing. If you have any questions about any of this, always feel

free to contact me personally at adam@servlife.org. Thank you for

your prayers and support.

College Sponsorship

The son of India Director Albert Das, Paul Das, has been attending

college in California and is now entering his second year. God is working

in Paul’s life and giving him an education beyond what he is doing formally

in college. Paul is growing in his intimacy with Christ, and was baptized

in June of this year!

We are trying to fund Paul’s second year of college and need your help.

Read more here and help us support this family that has given so much

to the service of God’s Kingdom. We can be a part of helping to launch this

young man on to great things as God continues to shape and mold his heart

and mind.

Pastors Training

11 men and 2 women from all over Nepal have gathered in Kathmandu for

this year’s Pastor Training School. Director Lazarus Thulung describes

them as “very mature and growing in their passion for ministry. We are

busy in teaching and modeling them in their personal life.”

The India Pastor Training School has also started with 8 students. Please

pray for these students, that God would equip them for the ministry He has

called them to.
