Praying for a new plan

Last night we found out that all three of our visas to Namibia have been refused.  I am continually surprised by our time here in Africa.  We make plans and they don't work.  God has something else for us. We are sure of that.  When we tried to go to Zimbabwe the Lord completely shut that door, and instead led us to a little country called Lesotho, that no one had previously hear of, to work with an orphanage that didn't know the love of God or what it meant to be in relationship with Him.

"We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps." Proverbs 16:9

So where does this leave us?  With 2 1/2 months left, no visa to Namibia, 30 days in South Africa, and a lot of opportunities that are knocking on our door.  Please continue to pray with us that God will lead us to where He wants us to be, and that we would be patient and quiet in this frustrating time to hear His voice.

Frustrating as it may be you were chosen to share the truth with young ones, its a learning experience for the young ones and yourself may you be safe in your journeys and God keep you on this beautiful enlightening path.

Thank you Theresa for your encouragement! Yes, we have learned a lot throughout this journey and those that we have been with us either online or in person I'm sure have been learning from the Lord as well. God bless you!
