It seems like it has been forever since I have wrote anything. We took the holiday season off just to focus on spending time with our family and with the Lord. Now that the New Year is here it is time to get back to work on the mission that God has laid on our hearts, the mission of providing HOPE and a brighter future for the children of Guatemala.
The word that has been heavily laid on my heart is TRUST. I knew this from the very time we started on this journey that we had to trust fully on God, for this was not something that we could do on our own.
I love the way that the message translation puts Proverbs 3:5-6 ““Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD ’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. You see when WE try and make things make sense in our minds, and in our own ways, we will fall short of what God has in mind. There are many things that are unknown about our future, but we have a known God that will keep us on track.
Over the next few months we have a lot of pieces that need to come together before we can make the transition to Guatemala. The two big things we need to do are sell our house and finish raising our budget for our mission. Both of these tasks have been very challenging over the last few months. Again we have to TRUST in the Lord, for we do not understand sometimes why things are not going the way WE want them to go. We believe that God has it all under control. We ask for your prayers and for your support as we go through the next few months of the next chapter in our lives.
