BIG news!

if you have followed my journey to, and during my time in, guatemala, then this post will come as no surprise to you.

for the past several months (and honestly since before even arriving here last august), i have specifically prayed for the Lord to guide me regarding my “next step” after the inital time commitment expired in july 2011.

i had hoped that He would lead me here longer, but wanted to guard my heart against making plans without Him.

 so…i waited….and prayed.

i prayed for specific confirmation.

boy…did He provide!

on january 31st, i recounted 9 specific confirmations the Lord had given me to stay. then…as if that weren’t enough, i received another very specific confirmation on february 3rd.

since that time, i have continued to receive confirmations, specifically two additional that came this weekend at the women’s retreat.

i am VERY HAPPY to report, that i am committing to remaining in guatemala until year-end 2012.
(at least!!!!! am open to longer if God leads)

i have kept quiet to allow time for all my authorities (sending org., church in texas, church in guate) to “sign off” on this leading and grant me approval to extend my time in guatemala.

my heart is BURSTING with JOY that i get to continue in His work here. He has made this such an abundant time of growth and ministry…i cannot wait to experience more!

more later on details…but, yes…i will still come back to the States this July to visit family, friends and raise support for a return. my goal is to be gone from guatemala as little time as possible as to not disrupt ministry here. PRAY WITH ME that God will raise the support quickly!!!
