A Year to Remember. . .

No, it isn't my birthday. Rather it's the birthday of a journey that began one year ago--a journey full of trials and blessings, smiles and tears, successes and apparent failures, a journey that we have been walking only by the grace of God.

I can still remember drying dishes in the kitchen with the other MK's and overhearing a part of the conversation that our parents were having. "Did I hear that right? Did they actually say something about our family going to Sunshine Orchard, or are they just 'talking'?" I wanted to get all excited, but knew I'd better hold off until I knew that my parents were actually serious about going.

Helping the Karen people had been my dream for about a year already. I had eagerly read everything I could find about the work going on over here. I didn't want to miss anything.

Every time that plea for help came again, I just wanted to go, to help, to DO SOMETHING!

Little did had I dreamed how God would answer my prayer. Little did I know of the difficulties that I would face. Little did I know what a wonderful God I serve. This past year has shown me things in my life that I hadn't seen very clearly before. I have come to know my God to a whole new level. He has never, never ever let me down. His faithfulness has made me ashamed of my lack of faith, yet every time I doubt, His love comes through so beautifully, again. . .

I couldn't ask for a better place to be. . .

. . . than in the hands of God.

  1. What a wonderful experience Hannah! :) I too have learned through the years that He will never let us down! Even when it looks like there is no way, He always comes through for us! Sometimes not in the way we think, but always in the best way anything could ever happen....always for our good!:) Thanks for sharing! :)
