Hi friends! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks of traveling around. If you ever need to feel loved, become a missionary and start support raising. I feel so unbelievably blessed to be going through this process. The Lord is just showing be over and over that He is all I will ever need. Support raising has given me an amazing opportunity to connect with people, some of whom I haven’t seen since I was six years old. Every time I leave an appointment I am encouraged in one way or another. People I have not seen in years are opening their homes to me, sharing meals with me, praying with me.
This has been a journey like no other, and definitely one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. But these challenges have caused me to lean on the Lord in ways I never have before. My trust in him is deepening and I think that is something that I needed before I leave for Peru.
I am constantly learning new things about myself and about my relationship with Christ. He is teaching me to have a new kind of faith, a faith that is “I don’t know how I am going to accomplish this goal, but through you anything is possible”. And it is possible! Here I am at 70% of my monthly goal and I am blown away with how God is providing for me, I could definitely never do this on my own.
God is so much bigger than you and me. This goal of mine seems so huge and impossible but “my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches and glory in Christ Jesus” Phil 4:19. All the riches in the world already belong to him. I am learning that it is his will for me to go to Peru and he will get me there.
Thank you to all who have been praying for me and encouraging me throughout this whole process. My heart is so full and I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for me in Peru in 2 months (ah!). Pray for continued faith and endurance as I finish out this period of support raising. Pray for strength as I begin to say goodbye to my friends and family. And pray for total trust that the Lord will carry this work to completion.
