But now, over $5,500 later and a thousand ways God has stretched not only my faith, but that of my parents, I am going. This is a huge step for us all. It isn't easy for my parents to let me go, and it won't be easy for me to be away from them for so long. But beyond the struggles of going, I am more exited at this moment than anything else. Again and again I try to wrap my mind around the fact that I am going but I am not sure it will fully hit me until I step on that plane on June 11th.
Because of the blessing that facebook is (even though half the time I truly dislike facebook), I have been able to get to know some of my team members and hear their stories of God's faithfulness, and the way God has brought them to where they are. My prayer is that none of us forget this time in our lives, that we would remember how God worked and how amazing it all was and is. Over 30 people have had to raise over $5,000 in funds to be able to go to Nepal and India, and many others are goingto other countries all over the world with the Gospel (like my friend Kara!).
Can you imagine what God has planed for us this summer? If He has just poured Himself out like this and given us everything we need to be able to get to TX for training, He must have huge plans for us.
I need prayer. If you think about it, could you offer up some words on my behalf to the Lord of this world, this universe?
Thanks friends. Remember, that God is faithful. We are unfaithful. God's plans are good. We don't always understand them.
Oh the depth of the riches, of the wisdom and knowledge of God.
How unsearchable, His judgments. How unknowable, His ways.Who knows the mind of our God? And who can bring counsel to Him? Who has given to God, that God should repay? For from Him, to Him, through Him is everything. To God be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
