Nagy Family – June 2016

Dear Friends,

The other day, Nik shared with me that he’s been reading in the book of Ezra about how the Israelites were sent into exile. Then, at God’s appointed time, they were allowed to return to their beloved Jerusalem, the city of the temple of God. When they arrived, they found the temple and the whole city in shambles. They had to start rebuilding from the ground up, facing a lot of labor and a lot of opposition.

Nik was stricken by the similarities between the Israelites’ situation and ours. The flight program at Thunderbird Adventist Academy was once strong and effective. We’ve heard several alumni tell of their experience with using the flight training they received here to do missionary work. However, at some point, the program fell apart and was shut down for years.

Now, at God’s appointed time, He has sent people back to reopen the program. It has not come without some opposition, and much work has been done and is yet to be done. We believe God has great things in store. Just when the Israelites were beginning to wonder if they misunderstood God, or if He had forsaken them, the Lord passed on a message through His servant, the prophet Haggai. He told them that “in a little while,” the “desire of all nations,” Jesus, the Messiah, would be in this very temple (Haggai 2:7). God promised that His presence would fill the house with glory and give peace. What a beautiful encouragement!

While Jesus’ feet will not walk through our office or our hangar, His presence is here. We believe that He has plans to train laborers for His kingdom here; that He will use the flight program to raise up workers for Him—workers who are willing to use their skills to serve the Lord and to get the knowledge of His love spread to every nation, tribe, and tongue.

As if the promise of the Messiah’s physical presence wasn’t enough, God sent a second prophet, Zechariah, with another cheering message. God was sending help. It wouldn’t be because of anything the people would do. God was sending help, “not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord God of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6).
To make a long story short, even after questioning their authority to rebuild, another king in the area supplied the Israelites with money to help with the expenses of their project. Even more, he provided them “day by day without fail,” with a steady stream of supplies for burnt offerings (Ezra 6:9).

We also trust that God has people in place to provide what we need for our project at Thunderbird Adventist Academy. Some have already accepted the calling of the Holy Spirit on their hearts and have joined our support team, for which we are continually grateful. We are still in need of more partners to help us continue this work.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers for our family and the work of AWA. Prayer is vital because it allows God to work, and that’s when things really happen!

Blessings to you,
Nik and Lynette Nagy
