Have you ever really thought about what Abram must of felt when he heard the Lord say, "Go"? (Genesis 12:1-3) God promised to take care of him, and listed the blessings he would receive but never told him how to go. Or where to go. He just said, Go.
That's kind of how we feel right now. We are blessed to know where we are going, but the how seems to be evading us. Even though it becomes difficult to see how God will work all this out, we know He has called people to "send" just as He called us to "go". We're just in the process of finding each other right now. ;-) It's times like these that I cling to and love the worship song, "All I have is Christ".
The last few months have had many ups and downs. Ruel and I have great confidence that God has called us to go, and thus will provide. We also have had many opportunities to share with people and have schedule times in the next few months to meet with potential partners. Please continue to pray for this.
The Irish are ever near and dear to our hearts. We pray for them, read about them, look at pictures, read the Irish Times, and in general, look for all things Irish. Our hearts are moving.
We're just waiting for the rest of us to follow.
