And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking. – Isaiah 65:24
We know all of God’s words are true, and he proves that everyday if we are just watching; let us have eyes that can see and ears that can hear.
Monday night we didn’t have as many people as I would have liked at the church service, but I know it was exactly how many God wanted. The reason there were so few is that Monday and Tuesday they have market here and the locals walk five or six miles down a mountain and then back up in one day, so they are tired. I prayed that night that the Lord would send more people and the Lord said, “Put some feet on that prayer and I will show you the way.” He gave me the thought of sending Will to Jerusalem IV in Gabriel (military truck) to pick up people so they would not have to walk to the main church, and afterwards, we could drive them back home. I thanked the Lord for His solution to my problem, but this was just the beginning. Tuesday afternoon a truckload of about thirty Haitian missionaries pulled up, singing and praising the Lord. The pastor of this group told us he had a vision two weeks ago that this was where he was supposed to come on this day and stay three days. We will be having our revival three more days.
What is amazing to me is that I did not see this as a miracle as it was happening. I just thought this was strange for these people to come all the way up here from Port-au-Prince and be dropped off for three days. Then at church last night, the Lord nudged me and said, “Here is your prayer answered.” How many times does the Lord answer our prayers in another way than we ask and we don’t see it? I just have to ask the Lord to forgive me for being slow and thank Him that He shows me that He does answer my prayers. He answered this one two weeks before I asked.
The team is doing great. They are working in perfect harmony, as the church should.
We are so blessed that He gave us this opportunity to serve Him. Please continue to pray – the Lord has just begun His work for this team.
