The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be. It may seem to be much worse, but in the end it's going to be a lot better and a lot bigger. ~Elisabeth Elliot
I'm not sure exactly what God has going on behind the scenes--but I am thankful that God is in charge of this journey we've been on.
If it had been up to me--we would be on a plane to China next week. :)
But God has other plans. I am grateful.
His plans include all kind of blessings that I would not have included. I would have gone for speed, efficiency, quickest route to China.
Now--I'll be taking slow steps--keeping my eyes open to the possibilities God has in store for us.
What ministry opportunity would we have missed had we traveled next week?
I really feel there must be something we are supposed to be apart of before we leave.
Pray for me to keep my eyes focused on God. I don't want to miss out.
In other news--We do have some exciting news to share--but I can't tell you till it's 100% confirmed.
I'll give you a small hint: It has to do with "gotcha days".
