Tomorrow we leave for Kenya.
My husband and I have been watching the news closely.
These are not safe times in our world.
And I keep reminding myself God has not called us to safety.
Even though it’s my favorite.
Some days the very title of my book mocks me.
Sometimes —often— our yes to God is scary.
Obedience is risky.
But when I shut out the what ifs, I can clearly see that God holds us close.
You may be standing on the dangerous precipice of your yes. The unknowns are terrifying, the fear tangible, but the peace palpable.
God is with us.
And when we ask, “Is He safe?” The answer is no. But He is good.” CS Lewis
Would you pray for us?
- Pray for peace in Kenya.
- Pray for protection over our homes, the staff, girls, babies.
- Pray for wisdom and direction over key decisions that will be made in meetings.
- Pray for the dozens of young, pregnant and single mothers we will be inviting into our new community outreach in the heart of two slums.
- Pray for me? I’m a big baby and I just need a lot of Jesus.
