Wheres Yo reservation

I was thinking the other day as i was reading in revelation. Not an everyday read kinda spooky. But in rev 3:20 it says behold I satnd at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come and dine with him and him with me. I was thinking about that and started to think about how many times in my life that I have heard Him at my door and just thought well He's there that is good enough. But if we want more of him he has to have more of us. In order for us to get all that Christ offers and if we want to be stuffed with His awesomness we have to sit and dine with him. Not just have a drive through relationship. Bar B Q number 2 order ready..... Not just a pick up and check out relationship but a sit down like Flemings!!!!!

I missed my flight yesterday :( Forcing me to spend the night in Johannesburg and get on a flight today. It has given me time to think too much :) Africa has been such a blessing in my life. Such a life-changing experience. Hard to believe that it is about to be over. My heart hurts so much to be leaving everything here behind, but at the same time is so over-joyed about the next phase of my life. Is it possible to feel those two emotions at the same time? They are so far from each other. I can cry with the pain of leaving at one moment, and then feel overwhelming excitement in the next. I love Swaziland, I love its people, its beautiful land, the children, the ministry we did there. I love it all and I will miss it greatly. Please pray for us as we transition into this new phase of our lives. I know it can be equally and even more fufilling, if we allow God to do all He wants to. Thank you to everyone who is walking this with us.

Faith. It's a life long test that i feel i will never pass. Having faith for something you want so bad, and not knowing whether it will happen or not, can hurt so much. Not knowing the outcome and trusting God for His perfect plan. It seems so simple. So why is it so hard? Lord, give me greater faith. I love you. I trust you. I stand in awe of you. Amaze me, Lord.

Empty church

I was hanging out in the church the other day looking at the chairs that were set up and all of them where empty. Then i had a thought. It was pretty cool to see empty chairs in a church. Now hang with me before you think Im nuts. My favorite scripture is romans 10:14-16. How will they know unless there told and how will they go unless there sent. Blessed are the feet of those who bring the good news.

I just thought of it as a church that is sending everybody. No more people hanging out waiting for the next guy to go and do it but everybody doin it together. Blessed are the feet of those who bring the good news. Lets be the explosive church and GO.

Hospital Visit

Today my friend Zinty and i went to the government hospital to visit the Children's Ward. The situation there is so sad. It just breaks my heart every time I go, yet I can't quit going. Today, we were in an area where people were waiting to get yellow fever shots and HIV treatments. I was sitting next to this woman holding a 5 day old baby. I didn't as why they were there, but she held have a card in her hand with all of the baby's information. The thing that struck me the most was not the reason for the baby being there, but 2 simple questions that asked: How many children has the mother birthed? How many children are alive now? The fact that that question was even on there disturbed me so much. Too many children are dying here. Too many babies are dying here. Lord, i plead for this country. Save its people. Only You can. Only You.
