The last week and a half have been absolutely AMAZING! For several months I have been struggling to see fruit in Support Raising and seeing God work. It is an endurance race for sure, but it has also been a faith building time for me too. When we pray do we expect God to answer? Do we trust his promises to know that he hears us? When a circumstance seems impossible, do we trust that "all things are possible with God? This week has been a week of seeing God answer prayers amazingly!
1. I didn't have any contact information for a friend, as I have been sending letters and emails out. I prayed specifically for God to reconnect us so that we could trade contact info. The very next day the person connected with me on Facebook.
2. Another friend surprised me with a donation that I did not expect. I cannot say much more than that until I get the person permission. But I will tell you it brought me to tears... Praise God!
3. I've met with several pastors over the last few weeks. But it greatly encouraged me to hear that "they" were encouraged by my vision and passion for serving Christ. One pastor even wants to meet with me on a regular basis to pray and encourage each other! Praise God!
4. Another friend shared his frustrations in ministry and what seemed like the lack of fruit. But God used me to encouraged him in his ministry and gave him a possible future vision of his service in the future.
5. An elderly woman, who is the sweetest lady, met with me and shared that she is going to support me monthly. She said it wasn't much, and that it would tighten her budget quite a bit, but she had never had any children and feels like this would be a good service to reach unsaved students. She has amazing faith and such a servants heart. Praise God!
6. Other networks are opening up for me. Everything seems unexpected, unplanned, yet I know God has a plan. Please continue to pray for me and the support raising. I'm at 16% and need to be at 90% by June 1.
The work I do is produced by faith. My labor is prompted by love.
My endurance is inspired by my hope in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
(1 Thessalonians 1:3).
