Answered Prayer…and More Prayers that Need Answered

Eleven days ago,  I wrote a post about three things we needed to do as we prepare to leave the country. If you haven’t read it, you can do so here. When I wrote that post, I foresaw many emails being sent out and long days of sitting and waiting, sitting and waiting for God to answer prayer. I’m sure there will be many days ahead like that, but not about those things.

In just eleven days, God has provided for pretty much every need mentioned in that post. Sure, something could change and we might be right back to where we were tomorrow, but today we are thankful. Today, we see God’s faithfulness to answer prayer before we even truly needed it answered. But mostly, it has encouraged us that, yes, God does want His gospel to go to the nations! In our case, to the nation of Papua New Guinea.

Being freed up in these ways allows us to concentrate on the biggest hurdle that still lies ahead of us: raising the rest of our support. As of tonight, we are at 100% of our one-time need (what we need to get there) and 48% of our monthly need (what we need to stay there). Will you pray with us that God would provide this? Being a missionary–looking to God to provide our daily needs through the hands of his people–is filled with distilled dependence and humbling gratitude.
