11.11.2018 Month14:Stateside USA, Current Update:
A new route has been opened by Adventures In Missions (AIM). This is an alumni route going through the United States of America.
Ive been invited to join the team of 12 people to travel throughout the states and encourage and stir up the World Race alumni, and minister in the cities we visit in an “Ask the Lord” style.
Up till now i have really been questioning “why so much waiting God? Why so much not knowing for me?” – but at every step He kept showing me that He had me here to help specific people, volunteer with the Huffmans and their church, and with the training of four squads leaving for ministry next year. Just to be there and support them in prayer and serve them well. For me to learn that i can be quiet and still be right. That i can wait upon the Lord for my provision in so much more than i have before. That He had healing for me. And rest. That i can stop trying to fix everything, and let Him be God and me me.
So here i am. 2 and a half months after the race, living in and learning the consistent rhythm of dependance and patience, and there is a route opened for america where they are sending people out to wait and depend on God for direction and dependance. And i feel like ive gotten the jumpstart of the training i need for this next year.
I remember that morning in an airport…waiting with peoples baggage. We were i think in the Dallas airport…
Someone sitting near me asked me about us – this big group of people taking over the gate seating with our baggage and our laughter.
We had just started the first legs of our world race. We hadnt even left the country yet.
I remember them getting angry at me.
I was taken back.
They were angry because we were leaving to spread the gospel and help people in other countries.
I remember his words.
Fed up: “We need help! We need help right here! Its such a gd waste! I cant understand why youre leaving america. We need help right here!”… then shaking his head he walked off.
Last sunday morning i sat during worship and prayed hard about the invitation to join worldrace america.
I didnt know but that morning the pastor had decided to preach on “Go!”.
They didnt have any bulletins to announce this, so i had no idea what was coming as i hunched praying in my seat.
With the pastors words”Go! Go out into the highways and byways and compelthem to come in – so that my house may be filled! (luke 14:23) Its not about asking God if you should go! Its about asking Him if you should not go!”
I felt that God was directly answering my moment of questions during worship.
I will be fundraising a very little amount – $1000 for the “cost” of this next year in america. AIM’s goal for us is to go out and rely that the Lord will provide. *(matthew 10)
I dont have all the official information yet, but i will also be asking people to partner with me both in prayers and financial gifts in this journey.
Because of my stateside luxury of wifi access i will also be doing video updates, some fb live sharing, and i would love to have some phone/skype dates during the year!
If im passing through your state, i would love to grab coffee 🙂
❤ thanks so much for joining with me on my journey!
