As you can see on the side bar countdown, we are leaving in 36 days!!!! It seems so unreal.
I have rented my home, which was causing some unnecessary stress. Through the process though I have learned some very good lessons about faith and trust. Leave it with God, without taking it back, and He will bring the RIGHT people. Thank you Lord for teaching me to rely on you, and you alone.
We have had two successful fundraisers, with the help of my trusted La la's. Raising close to $4500!!! AMAZING! What an awesome confirmation from God that He has called us to this.
Mackenzie and I are both doing well. I am having a bit of a hard time with the thought of giving up the comforts of home if I may be completely honest. God is bigger than any of these comforts though, and He will provide peace. I am fearful at times too, but God has directed me to this passage:
Isaiah 41:9-10 I have called you back from the ends of the earth, saying, ‘You are my servant.’ For I have chosen you and will not throw you away. 10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
I have made the mistake of thinking this journey is about me, in my fear and my struggle. God is revealing a bigger truth, this is about HIM and HIM alone. I feel privileged to be asked to give up what I have here in Ontario, Canada to be His hands and feet in this big world of His. To Him be the glory!
Now I must go and ready myself for some packing and organizing!!!
