Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favour is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
Today, 9 October 2012 – 7:25 AM, we received our passports with the “Resident Visa” label pasted on one of its pages... at last!
Our hearts are full of praises and thanksgiving for God’s goodness.
Our experiences here in New Zealand and receiving resident visa status have made our faith in God more vital than ever before.
In whatever undertaking, such as migrating to a new country, trusting the guidance of God is very important.
Living in New Zealand for 11 months now, we can testify it’s God’s faithfulness and His Divine Providence that has carried us through, over and above, our academic qualifications and skills.
Indeed, with God, nothing is impossible or even impossible is nothing.
What a remarkable journey of faith for us all. Thank you, our family, relatives and friends, home group and churches, and everyone who prayed for us, giving encouragement, kindness, and financial support.
May God’s wondrous blessings be upon every one of you.
Forever our hearts will say, “Thank you, LORD!”
Thank you, Lord God, for giving us overflowing reasons to rejoice always every morning!
