Challenges..

Sometimes it feels like my life is a big obstacle course.  I’m constantly running, trying to get to the finish line, but the entire course is booby trapped and I’m barely surviving, let alone finishing the race.

This has been the most eventful year of my entire life so far.  Our family put together a concert for Sunday, June 17th and we were so blessed by the people who came out to support us.  With help from friends and family, we gathered together $1800 more to help those on our team who had financial need, as well as to put money towards buying more lanterns! It’s so exciting!

Yet, I have to be honest, I’m not excited yet.  I have a lot of things on the go.  I want to feel like there’s something to be joyful about, because I know that there are SO many things to be joyful about.  I’m lying facedown in the mud hating the obstacle course.  I know it’s going to be rewarding when I cross the finish line, but I can’t see it yet.

The thing is that this is training, and we’ve already hit the battlegrounds. We can’t even see what we’re fighting against.  The battle we’re training for seems treacherous and terrifying, because the enemy knows us too well, and he knows our soft spots.

If you’re wondering how you can support our team, be a prayer warrior for us.

We are already having extreme nightmares, anxiety attacks, stress and so many things that are happening to us that can’t be coincidences.  We need your prayer. I can’t even emphasize it.  And to be honest, I’m so anxious right now about everything that I can barely even type the words to ask for your prayer. Yet, despite everything that has been hitting me full force, I know that there is a God who loves me and cares for me, and I know that you guys out there love me and care for me, so I’m begging for you to cover me in prayer.

The closer Uganda gets, the harder this is going to get. Yet, I know that God has something in store for all of us. Something that terrifies Satan and makes him really want to distract us and pull us down.  Help us stand against his schemes and find strength in God, because I know I can’t do it alone.
