The first time I saw her she was playing hide and seek with the little kids in the barnyard. Running amidst hay and cows, she made the game fun for the little ones. She was quick to accept me, a foreigner in her area and we parted with hugs.
Today I went back to the slums in Mae Sot to visit the kids who go to our school. I searched for her, hoping to see her. It was important that I saw her, because it was her the Lord put on my hearts to help. One woman had donated enough funds to help two girls who are at risk of being trafficked get out of the situation. As we drove towards Mae Sot, she came to mind. Could this be the girl God had chosen?
Students of Avoda come to Christ with faith that is alive and accept Him as their personal Savior.
More than once we have witnessed how God works: He takes away everything a person could boast about and shows us who really is worthy of Praise. He blesses with His strength and uplifts the weak and lowly in the eyes of this world. We thank you for your support and prayers. Because of your prayers and Gods mercy, we are still here today.
It’s been almost two years. Here I am. Living what I thought was my dream. A full time missionary. In an orphanage. If I ever thought I was a capable for this position, it was a lie. When hard times come,my weaknesses loom over me and I sink into , discontentment, and depression. I start wishing I was doing something else, that I was somewhere else. Africa once again seems captivating and alluring. Lord, are you sure you want be to be a teacher here? Can I do something else? Like open an orphanage? Look at what Katie Davis did! “It’s not about you, my child. It’s all about Me. This is all my work. Not yours and not Katies. My plans for you are bigger then what you can imagine for yourself. Be patient and trust in Me.”
