I think everyone likes to believe miracles can happen. Few however will take steps of faith, so that GOD can do the miracle, not them. Only when we completely trust God, aside from any of our own efforts, can miracles happen. Salvation is a beautiful example of this. Nothing we could do would save us, we were helpless, but trusted Jesus to save us, and he did. Miraculous. The picture below illustrates our fundraising strategy at the beginning:
I had to sit down and type this as I have seen a first hand a miracle take place over the past 6 months.
I was just sitting here packing when I found an envelope I had used to keep all our teams money in. Money people had given us for our trip. Money we had not asked for. Money that came from 6 countries. From over 25 different people. From God, through His people.
Then I looked at the names of the people that are going and their circumstances. Teenagers, grocery store clerks, factory workers, parents laid off, needing a miracle.
This is a powerful testimony to God's faithfulness. All we have to do is "trust and obey" and he will provide. May He get the glory for what he has done, and will do, through this trip.
