A miracle!

I don't know if anyone noticed, but I stopped blogging very quickly last night. I said it was because I had no time, but I actually looked down at my arms and saw that I was having an allergic reaction. For those of you who know me know that I had a bad one in February. I got very scared and headed back to hotel, where I had my medicine. I am so thankful for this team. They immediately surrounded me with prayer. They prayed with such faith, which I really needed. I showered, took some medicine, and sat to read my bible for a while. I started crying b/c tomorrow night, I'm speaking to the kids about the Mustard seed story in the bible. I thought, "how can I teach this story on faith when I'm completely lacking it right now?" But that's what my teammates were for. I went to bed truly believing that I would wake up better. I woke up this morning, and the reaction was GONE. Praise God! No, really PRAISE GOD. He proved faithful to me, and I can't wait to share that with these kids. I guess I had faith as big as a mustard seed last night. Thank you, Jesus, for this lesson; thank you for healing me; thank you for my team; and thank you for these kids! Thank you to all of you who are praying...keep it up! I'd like to ask for prayers for the teachers...that God would open doors for us to minister to them, too. They are the ones that will be with the kids when we leave. Until next time...love to all!

  2. Wow! This journey is an adventure in faith and faithfulness! Why are we amazed at what He can do when we are available to be His earthly hands and feet? We affirm your decision to participate in this mission and we thank you for taking His message of love to these blessed children. This next generation that you are ministering to now can make a difference in their nation and our world of nations. My prayer for you: "Lord, give her a clear mind, a warm heart, calmness in the midst of turmoil, reassurance in times of discouragement, and Your Presence always. Amen" (the other Dr. and Mrs. B")

  3. WOW, now isn't it so ironic how God will sometimes use our own words or study to teach US something, when we thought we were preparing to teach others. Glad everything has worked out and you are doing better!!

  4. Rhonda, remember- swing and jab firmly. :o) Emily, I love you and will continue to pray for your healing from this allergic reaction scare. What a great lesson on what it truly means to have faith in the times of doubt. Satan sure must be working hard against you, but you know what? God is much bigger and more powerful, so Stand Firm.

    Praying for you all, and constantly checking my watch, counting the hours ahead and wondering what you all are doing at any given moment,
