From here to there....

We have a God-given calling through His Word directing the church to meet the needs of the people in order to show His great love. A generation of people is rising in the church and effectively reaching out to others, while another generation sits warm and content in their homes. Pick a side! Kay Arthur

I was loving the encouragement she provided as a call to our youth, but honestly I am not a youth and struggle with "Am I too old to be dropping everything and doing missions??"

Jussi and I continue to prayerfully consider 2010. We know that God is not finished with us, we know HE has plans and a purpose for us...then why are we so insecure about the future.

The news of Haiti's quake devastated our souls, wrecked havoc with our minds and played out a million different scenarios as we waited for news. Thankfully for us, our Haitian family and friends were unhurt physically. The wounds of the hearts will continue in the hearts and minds of everyone, nationals and those that have come to help for years to come. Please pray for those that are still working on adrenalin to help as much as they can, to guard their hearts and their sleep.

To be switching gears and planning for Africa, post Haiti earthquake is still a difficult one for us to digest. We have continued to keep in contact with those opportunities in Africa and ask for your prayers as we seek His will for our lives.

Will try and keep you updated as the process continues and will also be posting up some pictures and writing a story of HOPE about what God is doing in Haiti, stay tuned for "With These Hands".

Hebrews 11:1 (NIV) Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

I love it , it is unexpected but so God! you and Jussi are such an encouragement to me. May God bless you as you seek His clarity and direction.
