Here and Now

As we pray and seek God as to when we should leave it seems we continue to get a wait. Really God? Wait. Alright...after all you know best. I'll be honest and say a lot of my impatience at this point is driven by my pride and what people will say and what they think about us not going on our original date. Shallow and sinful I know! God also continues to remind me that He has me right where I am for a purpose. I should live each day to glorify His name and not look to the "when we...." I will be transparent and say that this becomes more difficult while staying home with the kids, but then reality sinks in and I am reminded that I disciple 5 beautiful children and I am humbled and petrified. And that this amazing ministry travels with me.
I do have to continue to focus on the amazing positive things that have happened while we wait on God. One we discovered a couple days ago was that my husband was an answer to some one's prayer. Humbled again.... The other being the wisdom that our team on the field in Kotido is sharing with us. With this wisdom and insight we can better prepare for the extreme change. And as Kenneth Williams says until we get there we will enjoy our electricity, showers, flushing toilets, etc. :)
With having our team there we have learned that is more necessary for our family to have a vehicle and not just share a vehicle between the whole team. That does mean more money to raise but we are not concerned. He has provided miraculously thus far and will continue to. Thanks for your prayers.


  1. Ha ha ha I really understand the frustration but I have to laugh.

    When he was around forty Moses killed an Egyptian and said, "God, I'm ready to lead your people to freedom for you! Let's get this Exodus going!" Forty years later God said, "Ok Moses, move'em out!" Poor Moses said, "Not now God, I'm eighty years old!!"

    I hope you don't have to wait until your eighty but He knows all. Hang in there.


  2. Continuing to pray as you wait upon the Lord. He will provide, and we know His timing is perfect. Praying for your ministry where you are as you wait, for the money to be provided, and for your family to be growing in Him.

  3. Hang tight, y'all. It's just over the horizon. Kelly used the word "timing" recently. His timing is perfect. When the start gun sounds, you'll know it for certain. Praying for the entire group as the gathering nears its full number. Much to be done, and a legacy to be spawned. This, I feel to be true and certain!

  4. Thanks for all your encouragement! We feel loved!
