If three years ago, someone would tell me that I will go to Africa to serve the Lord I would just laugh. Why should I go there? I'm not that crazy and I don’t want to die.
Three years ago I wanted to live the life that I choose, not He. I wanted to finish high school as soon as possible, find a boyfriend, go to adventure and just have fun. I thought about the university not as necessary, but rather as a plan to escape from my little town. Unfortunately, I didn’t have God in my plans. But I didn’t know that God already has a plan for me. He was waiting patiently, led me through the darkness, lifted and carried in His arms. It was ... perhaps a strange time for me. Yes, I blamed heaven in all my failures. I wasn’t going to change my style of life. Until that moment when I realized that my life is empty and unnecessary glass vase. And this vase would shatter on small pieces only if it wouldn’t be catch by my Creator.
I am learning how to trust. Looking up to the sky and to saying: "not my will, but Yours."
Now, when I look back and see how He led me all these years, I just can’t hold tears of happiness and gratitude.
I still cannot believe that in a little more than a month, we will fly to Africa. Sometimes, when I think about it, my head is just spinning around. Thoughts are flying in a chaotic diversity, starting from the fear of spiders and ending with fear “What am I going to do there?” But it’s all empty worries. Once again, I'm trying to breathe, relax and trust my God. I know that everything is in His hands and no matter what is happening now or will happen there, everything is for my good. I don’t know the future; I just need to be thankful for today.
I have to trust in You. I know, You have the most incredible plan for my life.
Right now this group of people just needs your prayers. We want to see God’s hand in every little thing we are going to do on a mission. Also, we want to raise money for orphanage and hospital in South Africa, and we are praying about our fundraising events will go successfully. So if you are praying tonight, don’t forget about us. Thank you :)
