Last night we had our first team meeting in over a month.
I think about our trip to Peru every single day.
I think about the people we’re going to meet, the children we’re going to fall in love with, and the language barrier we are somehow going to overcome.
Each team member is so special; we all have unique gifts & talents to offer, but in the end, we’re all just a bunch of introverts that have the same fears about crawling out of our comfort zones.
At our meeting we talked about important team stuff. Stuff like missing clearances, and a scary deadline to purchase plane tickets.
You see, we each have to raise about $650 before we can buy our tickets. And we need to buy our tickets in a little over a week.
As we met, we all agreed that this is a time of extreme stretching. It’s easy to become discouraged when time is running out, and funds aren’t coming in. It’s easy to lose hope. It’s easy to wonder if this is what we’re really called to do.
Jesus gently reminds me that He is my provider.
He reminds me that He is more than enough.
He reminds me of the second time I was planning to go to Peru, and Elim Bible Institute told me I couldn’t travel because I hadn’t paid off my school bill, and the cost was just too much. Within weeks, I won a grant, I was offered a well-paying job, and someone paid for my plane ticket.
He reminds me of His faithfulness.
He reminds me of His love, and how this love never fails.
When Jesus said He’d take care of everything, He meant it.
Every single penny.
