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.
