Nice plans, ha!

I'll sneak a few cute kiddo pictures in here so the rest of this won't be a total no-fun read:)

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails" Proverbs 19:21

Honestly, this has been a very difficult week for us. We have had no less than four things fall through that we were hoping for. Nothing that changes our big plans (to go to missions aviation training for 4 months this spring) has come to pass. But other relevant things we were praying about have come back to us as "no".

That said, we have much to be thankful for. We have had 5 people tell us they would like to partner with our mission efforts this week. That is a huge praise! Not only that but we sold our lazy susan for the same price we bought it-after a whole week of zero interest in it on craigslist. But the disappointment of those other "hoped for's" lingers. I am reminded that our trust and our hope is in Him and not in our circumstances. And that's a good thing.

Thinking and praying for you today.

My daughter and I would like to partner with you as well. Thanks for the reminder to send in my info to you. I've got a story that I need to share with you about my budding missionary here in my home and your story has been inspiring to her. I plan to share it with you soon!

Thank you for the encouragement and support Jane (and to your daughter as well!). We have had a hard couple weeks but God has given us the grace for each day. I can't wait to hear the story about your budding missionary! That's so exciting! And thankyou for your partnership-let me know if you need any more information to do so. :) Rachael
