Here we are on the road again. We thought our travelling days were over for a bit, but not so! We went to Florida last week and are on a road trip to Michigan with a lot of meetings talking with churches and individuals about funds for our hospital plan. We are also meeting with organizations that deal with hospital equipment.
We are at Art and Dorothy Helwig’s house in Michigan meeting about future plans for Gembu. We have had very few nights in a row in the same place but God is blessing! We are making wonderful connections and gathering resources.
On Saturday we had a Days for Girls Event at Edinbrook Church. It was awesome to see this in action and I can’t tell you again how much I believe this organization and the concept of this is going to really benefit our women and girls in Gembu, Nigeria!
Today I am once again blown away at the way God keeps blessing and blessing! We have hit a lot of JoAnn Fabric stores to purchase flannel for our Days for Girls kits. We are not able to find flannel currently in Nigeria. People ask what we need that much flannel for and we tell them. We are so blown away by peoples interest and responses.
My thought for today is this: What if I was content with my life as it was? Do not get me wrong, I loved my life and I loved knowing exactly what each day would hold. I DON’T ANYMORE! I would be missing out on the blessing of having God use me in His plan for this great big world. What if I would have been afraid to go back to Nigeria because I got shot the first time? I would be the one missing out! Think about this? What does fear stop you from doing?
