Hey friends! Some BIG things have happened this month that continue to show how God truly is going before us and preparing our way. I am amazed at how He continues to confirm our calling to Swaziland as He answers prayers and moves mountains that get us one step closer.
We continue to be humbled that God has chosen us to be a part of His story and the work He is doing in Swaziland. We serve a great God, who is always faithful!
Deuteronomy 32:4 The Rock, His way is perfect, for all His ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is He.
One of the biggest “mountains” in this journey has been selling our house. Well, guess what…after 20+ showings in a months time…It.Is.Sold!!!!!!!!! We close on August 18th. Once again there are no words but humbled. We get a front row seat at seeing His hand at work!
God has taught me so much through this process of selling our home. He has used this to open my eyes and convict my heart of how selfish my prayers can be. Let me give you a little example…when our house first went up for sale my prayer was that it would sale FAST, because then people would see His power, aaaand my main reason, because it would be MUCH easier on me! Oh how I fall so easily into Satan’s traps and forget THE REASON why we are here, and that is to bring honor and glory to God and make His name known among the nations. I am so thankful that God does not leave me in my sin but He continues to refine me.
My prayer began to change, more than I wanted things to be easy for me, I prayed that God would bring a believer into our house to continue to be a witness in our neighborhood. Whether God sold our house “fast or slow”, it would be in His perfect timing and ALL the details He would bring together would bring Him the most honor and glory! God didn’t just sell our house but He sold our house for $100 MORE then what we were asking for it!
Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
The other big obstacle standing in our way is being 100% funded monthly. We are at 75% as of right now. Our goal has been to be at 100% by August. We need to be able to buy our tickets no later then the middle of August. We are in the home stretch here people! We only need 12 more people to partner with us at $100 a month or equivalent to and we will be 100% funded! I cannot wait to see how God is going to do it! It was just in June that we were at 13% and now in less then two months we are at 75%. We are amazed and once again humbled to see God work in the hearts of His church and the obedience that follows in our family of believers. God has called us and He will continue to prepare our way!
Titus 2:11-13 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
