Do you ever feel like giving up in prayer for something or someone? I do. There are times when I wonder, “What’s the use?” At times like that, I need encouragement—a faith booster. This “Jesus story” occurred sometime in the last year. A friend in South Africa shared the story with me. Get ready to have your faith boosted.

This past week I had the privilege of seeing a long-time friend, Jeff Price, while I was speaking in Denver, Colorado. He served as an elder at Coast Community Church in Huntington Beach, California, where I was a pastor in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Jeff moved his business to Aurora, Colorado, later sold it, and retired. God had new plans for Jeff. He now oversees a refugee ministry in Aurora that he calls the “Refugee Bicycle Ministry.” Let me share with you this wonderful Jesus story.
My friends from South Africa were thrilled to have a few days to relax and enjoy some family time away from home in the mountains of the Western Cape. The get-away provided a much-needed rest for Willem, a pastor, and Janine, a teacher, three months pregnant with their third child. Retreating for spiritual and physical refreshment, a sensory smorgasbord of smells, sights, and sounds of the beautiful Bainskloof Pass were exactly what the doctor ordered. They also cherished time with their children, Kiara (4) and Kiran (2) before adjusting to the new addition.
