Late Summer and Ministry

While I was in Belarus I got sick. I have asked the Lord why but I do know that God allowed this trial in my life. After several months of illness I am on the mend. I had hoped to return to full-time ministry when I got home from the trip. I was offered a place to serve in Clarkston with refugees. I only had a few days notice to prepare before the new mission at the apartment opened. I was so excited but I was so sick! I couldn't imagine why God wasn't letting me get well so I could do this! I struggled the entire week with my illness and no peace that I would be physically able to take this program on the next Monday. There was another couple who was interested in this apartment complex. That doesn't happen very often! I called Mark and told him that I was not in peace about the next week. I reminded him of (and of course he knew)the struggles I was having physically since being in Belarus. We prayed and Mark made the call to let the other couple take the complex. I think that was one of the hardest things I have ever done! So I am anxiously waiting on God for my new full-time missions opportunity. Waiting is difficult especially when my whole heart's desire is to serve Him! In the meantime I continue to visit with some of the families at The Falls to give them encouragement and to share God's love.
