Last night my amazing wife was reading an article by Joyce Meyer to me that TOTALLY spoke to my heart.
When God gives us a vision, He doesn't always give us the timimg. We can see the end result and imagine what it will be like, but we don't always know exactly how we are going to reach the destination.
Pregnancy is an amazing process. We can imagine what the baby is going to look like and act like (though we are usually wrong ;-) ) and we begin to make preparations for the new arrival.
We arrange furniture, paint walls, buy cothes, on and on it goes...
I have realized that is exactly what is going on with our move to Costa Rica and the start of our International Evangelistic Training Center.
We are giving birth to a HUGE new arrival. There are many, many preparations that must be made. Therefore I continue to trust in the Lord that He is guiding our steps as we walk out this time of being "pregnant."
I know that He is faithful and will reveal all things in His timing...Have a great week as you too seek His face!
We had a second showing on the house today - it is #2 on the people's list of favorites, and the one they like already has an offer in on it....so...this could be it...the truth is - we have TOTAL peace that the sale of our home will work out in the Lord's perfect timing!
REMINDER!! - Deposit on the July Costa Rica Mission trip is due March 1st! Be a part of the team - it is going to be a incredible trip!
We have another showing scheduled for tomorrow...join us in prayer that our house would sell according to the Lord's timing!
Also, we have people starting to sign up for the Costa Rica mission trip. Check out the link under "Ministries" if you want more info!
So...the people who liked our house but thought the yard was too small are coming back today - could be a good sign!
Brigit's Ladies' meeting went awesome last weekend! I am pumped because I get to preach this weekend at Faith Community Church - 10:00am - hope you can make it!!
God is moving tremendously! Yesterday we had another $1,000 come in for our truck fundraiser - we are now up to $2,200....only $17,800 to go.
In addition, mission trips to Costa Rica are starting to line up. People are already asking about our July 2012 trip, I met with a Christian School that may bring as many as 30 kids the summer of 2013 AND I have another meeting tomorrow to discuss hosting a trip for a group of ladies from a 1,500 member church. God is good!!!

~ The End of America (I know it sounds bleak, but it is worth the read - end times type book)
