After a period of patience, resting, and waiting on God’s timing, we have been officially approved by LightSys, and Calvary Aurora, to proceed with raising support and building ministry partnerships. I have to admit though, it somewhat feels like Peter standing on the edge of the boat getting ready to step out on on the water. However, I do know that everything up to this point has built up our faith to face this challenge. Thus, we are boldly stepping out into this new phase of our journey into missions.
Over the next several months, we will be meeting one-on-one with people to share our vision and to build relationships with those that are called to partner with us. Please pray that God will connect us with those individuals, and if you feel you are one of them, please let us know.
Update (Oct 21, 2018) –
The Lord spoke some encouragement to me yesterday through these scriptures:
6 “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. 7 Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. 8 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. 9 This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
8 It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. 9 And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith—for he was like a foreigner, living in tents. And so did Isaac and Jacob, who inherited the same promise. 10 Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.
