No News

Regular readers of this blog have become accustomed to my short posts with the simple title, “Good News.”  They contain a sentence or two summary of how many new Prayer Partners and Financial Partners we’ve received in recent days.  Everybody likes those posts and I love writing them.

It’s been just about a month since we were blessed with a new Financial Partner.  This has not been for lack of effort on my part.  I’ve made more contacts than in any previous month.  Nor has been for lack of prayer.  As my desperation increased, so did the frequency and fervency of my prayers.

I long for something exciting to write.  Each day brings new hope of potential good news, but ends with silence.  Alas, God is working in the background.  It is in months like these when I find out whether I am in love with answers to prayer or with the God who answers prayer.

PS – It’s not entirely true that I have no news – God blessed us with SIX Prayer Partners this past weekend!

  1. Praying for you guys- this stage of waiting must be so difficult. I was glad to hear on Sunday that you were approved for the July training, though!! Praying that God will encourage you with His plan this week!

  2. Wish I had some fabulously encouraging words, but the verse that came to mind as I was reading was the verse in Isaiah “those that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength…” I will continue to pray for God to throw open the doors for you – and in the meantime to give you strength, peace and encouragement. I know you are in love with the God who answers those prayers and what an amazing God He is!!!!

    Love you guys!
