What is rest?

Josh and Beth Paulick on April 13, 2021

What is rest? I (Josh) used to think of rest as not doing anything or just sleeping. Then a world wide pandemic hits and while I have been in a country with very few restrictions I see that many of my friends in the US, France, and other countries around the world do not feel rested from being stuck at home doing “nothing” for months. They are tired of it. Then what is rest? I hear at least once a week if not more some version of “I”m going to go home and tell everyone I know to come here!”...

Unity of Mind

Josh and Beth Paulick on February 16, 2021

    “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart and a humble mind.” 1 Peter 3:8. This has been something that I have been praying over our team and has been on my mind a lot lately.  The Lord has really been showing me a lot through this study of 1 Peter (by Jen Wilkin) that I have been in with the other ladies on the field.  It can feel hard sometimes to have unity when we haven’t been able to meet as much as a team in the past year and when we...

Christmas in Togo

Josh and Beth Paulick on January 3, 2021

      Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious...

A glimpse of life in Togo

Josh and Beth Paulick on November 24, 2020

    I think we have started a prayer letter 2 or 3 times in the last few weeks and it is just so hard to know where to even begin with how much our hearts are heavy for America; heavy for the political situation, heavy for all of those facing COVID, and heavy for all of those facing lockdowns once again.  We are praying for all of you, and wanted to know that we are thinking of all of you and know this is not an easy time by any means.  Anything we can say in an update feels small...

"Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!"

Josh and Beth Paulick on September 7, 2020

    One of the days this week during my Bible reading, I was reading in Psalm 33, verses 6-8.  “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their hosts. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap; he puts the deeps in storehouses.  Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!”  Recently Josh and I, along with Owen, were able to get down to Lomé, the capital city to do some shopping for us and for some...
