Can you believe that it’s already May and I am leaving in August?! Where has the time gone?! I only have three months left before I embark on this amazing adventure God has called me to. I pray to continue to be changed by God’s love and grace, to give all the glory back to Him.
I am officially partnered with Stockwell Baptist Church, so I will be moving to the heart of London! I will be moving to another big city, but I realized that this is where my heart lies. I have been praying and asking why God wouldn’t lead me to the quiet life of the countryside, but to the craziness of downtown London?! Oh how God knows me better than I know myself, the very people my heart hurts for are overflowing in London.
Listening to the sermons of SBC and hearing where their hearts lie, I just know this is where God has called me. I do have another meeting with the pastors to discuss more on how I will best fit within the church and potentially set up more zoom calls with women of the church. God continues to amaze me in how everything is unfolding in ways I would never expect, but so much better.
Support raising has not looked how I thought it would throughout this journey. If I am being honest it has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. The amount of submission and trust that is required, I simply didn’t know. I knew it wouldn’t be all rainbows and butterflies, but I didn’t realize how much control I would be forced to give up. All of my sinful ways came gushing out and it was like I had to wrestle with this internal battle, while also conveying to people to support this mission God has placed on my heart. So much harder than I thought! Praise God though for going into the trenches with me and bringing me out to the other side. I’m still learning and growing, I still have moments of serious panic, and I am scared of these crazy unknowns, but God, He sustains me. He is mine and I am His. I find peace knowing I take refuge in the Lord.
I am currently at 43% and pray to be at 50% in the next couple of days. I would only require 4 people to give a monthly support of $100 or 8 people $50. If I do not reach the 50% within this next week I would have to seriously consider delaying my departure again. Internally I know that this is not the end of the world and it doesn’t mean I will never go, but I am still on the edge of my seat. I pray God provides the funding, I have seen Him work through each and every one of you, and I know in my heart that God’s will will be done. If the Lord is leading you to support, in the right-hand column there’s a link to my online donation page. If anyone, has any connections to churches, bible studies, or friends that would be willing to support please share my information.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your love and support. I know I say this every update but I truly mean it. “Missions” does not happen without it. God is going to do amazing things and we all get to be a part of it. Thank you.
