I Feel Like George Bailey

I often forget to check my mail. Sometimes I will go a week, driving by and realizing too late...then I'm just too lazy to walk down and get it.

Today, it had been four days. And, when I opened the box, there were seven envelopes...seven families who have committed to partnering with me (prayerfully and financially) as I follow God 's call to Kenya. This makes eleven families so far.

I started crying. I called my mom and cried again.

I sat and thanked God for this community of people...people who are so supportive and generous.

As overwhelming as the preparation for this trip has been and will continue to be, God is so faithful. I am constantly surprised at the way He works...at His continuous blessings.

I can't wait to see what else He will do.
