Answered Prayer - Update

I've added several posts today, but I felt this was most important, therefore I posted it last, so it would be first. Make sense?!

Anyway, our goal is to be on the field by the end of July/early August. Although, we want to get there in God's perfect timing. Isaiah 55 reminds us that our thoughts and ways are not God's. How humbling! Sunday morning I simply prayed and asked God for 2 new supporting churches this week. Well, I must say I was a little doubtful. But we serve a great God, don't we?! The church we were at on Sunday took us on for support! I thanked the Lord for it, and prayed 1 more God, please! Yesterday we got a call from a pastor who's church we were at over a year ago, he told us they voted Sunday night to take us on for support as well!! I told my husband about my prayer request. He simply replied, "Why didn't you pray for 5?" My reply? "O, me of little faith!" God is good all the time! This puts us up to 82.5%!!! Check out our website for more info on our ministry.

UPDATED: I turned the computer on this morning to check our email and received an email from yet another pastor telling us they voted to take us on. 3 new supporting churches in one week! Praise the Lord! We are now at 83.5%, but who's counting?!

That is great! I'm so glad you are still seeing your support levels rise. It is so neat to see God answer your specific prayers. :) We never even made it to 80% by the date we felt God wanted us here and He is still providing our needs even though we logically cannot make it. We are at 50% of the recommended amount and we have been living here for 2 years now. God is so good to us! :)

Wow, what a mighty God we serve! Who stoops to answer the weak and feeble (speaking of myself, here!) prayers of His saints! It's great to hear that God is sending you on your way!

Praise the Lord, Jen! God IS great! Hope the rest of your support comes in quickly so you can start your ministry in Australia. We'll be praying!

How exciting for you! I know how encouraging that can be. I grew up in a missionary family.. spent 12 years in a third world country. I can say now as an adult those were definitely the most defining years, and experiences I wouldn't trade for anything. 83 percent support is amazing.. specially in this in age! Thanks for sharing your blessing.
