…I woke up this morning and thought, “yeah, this really is impossible…” And remembered how many times I thought that when I was in South Asia before, and was amazed that it actually got done. I’m encouraged by a lot and frustrated by a lot. Yesterday morning I woke up thinking about all the reasons why this wouldn’t work, and then said to myself, out-loud actually, that, “I need to find something EVERY DAY to really truly praise Him for.” And when I started thinking of things, I couldn’t stop.
I shared this morning at breakfast with the three other women who are here right now, that I think we have arrived in the Promised Land. I read from Deuteronomy in my devotions, “…For the Lord your God is brining you into a good land of flowing streams and pools of water, with fountains and springs….it is a land of wheat and barley…fig trees and pomegranates…” (we have pomegranates almost every night for dinner)…. “It is a land where IRON is as common as stone…” (our water is brown because of all the iron in it!!’ (Deut 8:7-10). I said, “I think we truly have arrived!” They all thought it was pretty funny!
