“God scatters to reunite.”

That quote came from the book I’ve been reading lately called “Finish the Mission” by John Piper and David Mathis. The discussion in the chapter was about the Gospel in the Old Testament, and the way that God scattered the nation of Israel on multiple occasions. In the New Testament, we also see the disciples being scattered into all the world in order to preach the gospel.

Biblically speaking, we have so many examples of people GOING in order to spread the gospel. We too, are called to GO outside of our comfort zones for His honor and glory. Even though we are sometimes baffled as to why God seems to break up a “good thing,” often it’s for a better thing! God scatters to reunite.

An Adventure

“An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”

Fundraising Update

Finally! A moment to post an update on Hope Hill and what’s going on with things! Life has been extremely busy lately, so I’ll keep this update short and sweet:

1.) Funds. I am still working to raise funds for Hope Hill, and the numbers have continued to go up! Later this week, I will update the thermometer on the right.

2.) Where Funds Go. As a result of our move to Texas and my partnership with A Child’s Hope, we now have a new place to direct funds! Rather than going through our church in Michigan, donations can now be made out to “A Child’s Hope” with “Hope Hill” in the memo line. Those checks can be mailed to:

A Child’s Hope
16545 Village Drive, Bldg A
Jersey Village, TX 77040

3.) Valencia. My precious little girl continues to do well in Haiti! With her sponsorship, she is now being tutored and is catching up in school. I am anxious to see her again, and am praying about a return trip to La Montagne in 2014.

That’s all for now! I appreciate all of you who are praying for this project! Soli Deo Gloria!
