The Lord has been strengthening our faith. I don’t know how to tell all the stories that the Lord has been giving us lately, but what I can say to you is this: Trust the Lord with what He promises! The way we like to live is with reserves, back up plans, and plan “B’s”, but that is usually very uncomfortable and scary. I believe He wants us to really live dependent on Him, and He delights in fulfilling His promises. The Lord has been strengthening our faith as we start deputation and I am glad that we made a few decisions that have caused us to rely totally on Him. We wanted to prove Him in our own lives and He has not let us down. In some ways it is a scary thing to leave all that is safe and familiar in the states and commit to going to the other side of the world, but when the Lord makes Himself and His provision so obvious it is very comforting. “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel….and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Matt 28:18-20 I think He is trying to tell us that this promise really is true.
