Welcome to the world!
Shiloh Alisa Spray
There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
There shall be showers of blessing—
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
I love this old hymn--“Showers of Blessing.” I have been reminded of these great lyrics in both the literal and figurative lights. I can first relate these “showers” to the extreme rain we experienced while here in Arizona. Mary and I have had the honor of being here at this time of year for the last 27 years. Neither of us can remember seeing the rain come as it did recently. We can also attest to having seen the blessings of the Lord “shower” down in unbelievable ways. Not only has the Lord supplied our needs, but He has also moved in each Missions Conference we have been able to be a part of. Each church, it seems, has been moved to step out a little further by faith to do more for Missions at home and around the world.
I experienced one blessing in particular while finishing up a conference with a concert on a Sunday evening. A very sweet lady we have come to know--I believe she is Navajo--gave a wonderful testimony at the close of the service. Afterwards, she came to me personally and expressed how the Lord had moved her through the music. I have been singing a number of old hymns as part of each concert recently. She told me that the songs brought back great memories. She said her young life had been hard, and then reflected on when she got saved and the songs she remembered in her youth. The songs sung that evening had moved her, reminding her of the great blessings of God in her life. Her tears of joy, even as she expressed the early sadness in her life, reminded me of the great power the old hymns still possess.
I praise the Lord for seeing His hand move in the services we have been able to be a part of. The rain here in the desert of Arizona brings the promise of a beautiful spring just around the corner; the showers of the blessings of God’s children giving more for Missions promises a good harvest of souls in the year to come.
Mary and I count it an honor to be a part of your mission family and pray we can be worthy ambassadors for His glory as we present the gospel through song. We are truly humbled and grateful for His allowing us to serve Him. We just recently celebrated our 34th anniversary on the road. What a journey--and what a joy it has been!
In His service,
Mark & Mary Gray
