It's the only way I know how to describe what I am feeling right now. I am full.
Full of excitement.
Full of anticipation.
Full of anxiety in leaving my family.
Full of God's amazing blessings.
Full of apprehension and excitement mixed together in all that we will be seeing while in Ethiopia.
Sunday our mission team was commissioned in church and prayed over. We all stood in the front while the rest of the church either laid hands or extended them from where they were and prayed over us. What an indescribable feeling of power and Grace God flowed into us.
Later in the day my dad called to say that while he was laying down for his nap he felt the leading that he should give enough money to cover 3 houses in the village we will be visiting. I can hardly type that without weeping. If you knew my dad...it's huge! It's not a huge amount of money in the scheme of life(and money is something he's not hurting for), but it's huge in and of itself.
Our itinerary keeps changing, but it's not a bad thing. So many new blessings seem to be added.
I wish I could put into words the ways God is molding and changing my heart through this whole experience. Literally...lol I have even been having chest discomfort...lol Pray for that please. :o)
I will post what I know to be our itinerary before we go if you would like to be able to pray specifically for our daily activities.
God is Good. He's amazing. He's FULL!
