Jeremiah 17:7-8 English Standard Version (ESV)
7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
8 He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
This is what I’m reading this morning and the verses I am standing on while we are home on this very important trip. Being completely dependent on God for everything is amazing. Trusting in Him to literally provide all your needs is unbelievably frightening but also exhilarating. It gives us the opportunity to see how God works and provides for his children. So here we are, back in the United States sharing our story, making contacts, but mostly trusting in God. When we left for Kenya the first time we were 100% supported and it would be amazing to know that when we leave this time we will be again. But I refuse to get too stressed about it. I know, and Bronwyn knows that we have been called by God to serve in Kenya and as sure as we are certain of that, we know that God isn’t going to call us and not provide a way. We only need to “trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord”.
So please, if you are reading this and you have followed our story pray about becoming a part of our support team. And here is the thing, even small monthly donors make a huge difference. We have members of our support team that contribute $5 a month and we love them just as much as those who are $100 a month supporters. We know that not everyone can drop everything and move to Africa and not everyone has been called to that, but we are, and we know that God is calling some of you to help support the work we are doing. Below is the link to our support account, take a moment and click on and ask God what He might be calling you to do. Also share this blog post with others. I am attaching some amazing pics from camp, so you can get a snapshot of what we do.
As always, thanks for following our story. If you have any questions, please ask. We are excited about what God is doing in our lives and love sharing it with others to hopefully encourage and strengthen them.
