Faithfulness

“Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness” Psalm 115:1 NLT

As stated before, my sorrow because to subside. A new season was beginning to dawn. I had/have many things going on which distracted me a little. Baseball season alone for only 2 of my boys is enough to make me crazy. One day at the beginning of March, my good friend began to tell me about a new opportunity for the people of our church. I was listening, but feeling like she shouldn’t be doing that. She is doing enough and perhaps someone else should be helping. BUT she had had a dream and well dreams are important so she was going to do it. A few weeks later, guess what! I was asked to join this endeavor. I was reluctant because there was so much already going on, but said yes because you can’t really argue with God. Amazingly there was a meeting with the IMB (International Mission Board) rep and I decided to make the opportunity to go and get more information. My friend and I had gotten together to talk about the details and I began to get pretty excited.

If you remember way back to part 2 or 3, the original plan was to go to somewhere where they spoke Spanish. I felt like God brought me back full circle. Also, I get to bring people into God’s purpose to redeem ALL peoples.

We had the meeting with the IMB guy, and I walked away amazed. This place was my sweet place, I could tell. I was in the center of where God wanted me. The things we talked about and how our church could help these struggling pastors gave me goosebumps. I was already dreaming and thinking about what could be. We were NOT to go in a take over, but to walk along side them as they minister to the lost. This place in Mexico only has about 2% evangelized so I was pretty jazzed about getting to reach a primarily lost people. The planning has begun for a group to go this fall. I can hardly wait.

Within that same week or close to a week, we had a friend over. He was sharing about one of the other areas we are focusing in on as a church. A special place in Southeast Asia. They were looking for people to go on the trip. I was trying to stay cool, but inside I was jumping up and down like a little child saying “Can I go? Can I go?” Adam knew exactly what was going on and said it would be a good idea for me to join that team. Praise God the finances were provided and both son #2 and I are going this summer to be a part of a construction team (thankfully it is mainly painting and I can paint pretty well, always messy, but I can get the job done). I am so excited to be going back to a place I love and to get to go to a different part as well.

This June, I will be teaching one of the classes for Perspectives. I am really hoping this is not my first and last opportunity to do it. I love that I get to help and draw people into his global purpose that all people will know who He is.

This week I was asked to help contribute to the Go Conference we are having in June at our church. Some other people and I will be trying to help put together what they kids are going to be learning and how to expose their hearts to God’s love for the world. So exciting!
