I really want to thank those of you who have been lifting me up in prayer! I don't recall if I have told you how evident your prayers have been. This has been a process that would normally stress me out, but the last 5 days have been some of the most encouraging and peace filled days I can remember.
I mentioned it briefly in another post but I want to highlight perhaps the most revealing thing about ministry I have learned this week. It will seem obvious, but I think we often forget it and thus lose out; that we are so dependant on the presence of the Holy Spirit when we are in ministry. Sometimes we become so used to His presence that we may become numb to its power. Even Jesus when he was in the wilderness and then headed into ministry did so with the Holy Spirit not on his own, check it out in Luke 4. This was so evident in our role plays this week. "I can do nothing apart from Him who gives me strength, but I can do everything because of Him."
Today your prayers were even more evident as I went through what I expected to be my most challenging day with compleate peace and ease. I passes my MMPI psych assesment with flying colors. With no signs of Crazy and or depression, which is actually an answer to those other prayers for my Thyroid! He even said I am psychologicaly fit for overseas living and very well adjusted and have no visible signs of stress. My meeting with my doctor was also smooth and easy, he saw no reason I could not go, and said that Rome has great heath care. My interviews with the leadership went just dandy as did all my meetings with people from every area of the World. I also got the basics of what support I am going to need and how they put together our packages, as well as how those packages care for our total health and the organizations health. I am totally sold on how ReachGlobal cares for their people.
All that to say THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!!
This is not the group I am trying to join, but it gives you an idea...
Point and Purpose
Hello friends, if you are reading this you have been invited to by me! That makes you pretty special and means that you are in the know about my Secret Life. If you are wondering what Secret Life, you are a little slow, but I still love you!
The Secret Life that this blog is going to keep you up to date on is my application process and potential new life in Roma, Italy. I don't know why it took me so long to figure out this is the easiest way to keep you all posted (pun intended) on the process. But now that I have finally figured it out you can check out all the latest on here.
But please remember that it is called The Secret Life of for a reason, there is no guaranteeing that I will be accepted and so I have not as of yet let everyone in on the idea of me being a missionary in Roma. So shhhhh.
