Waiting on the Right Time

Hello friends! 

Today is the day that begins our Mission Trip. We’ve been packing, preparing, finishing things at home and praying for Gods strength as we press forward. 

The original itinerary is for my dad and I to leave this afternoon for a flight to New York. Staying the night in NY. Wednesday we would take a 15 hour flight into Johansburg, South Africa, stay the night with dads college friend, then take a flight the next day to Lusaka, Zambia. After about a week there we would go on to Entebbe, Uganda, and stay at Abaanas Hope in Gulu, with Four Corners Ministries for 2 weeks. From there we would go back to South Africa, New York, then back home to Indiana. 

Last night we were told our flight from Indianapolis to New York, was cancelled due to a major snow storm. We thought we had another flight out for this evening but it seems that all flights have been cancelled for today.  Since we won’t be in New York we will also miss our flight out to South Africa. 

Please pray as we wait for the storm to pass and for our flights to be rescheduled. As of now we have no clarity as to when we’ll be able to get a flight out. It could be as late as Friday. 

I’m just resting in Gods sovereign will as we pray and wait patiently. He has a purpose in everything. I would much rather be in the center of Gods Will than anywhere else. 

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭27:14‬ ‭

“But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.”‭‭  Psalms‬ ‭73:28‬ ‭

  1. I just started a Bible Study last night on waiting on the Lord! The word for “wait” is also translated elsewhere as “hope,” as well. So far in my study, it has become evident to me that the key to waiting on the Lord is following Him & His commands while you are waiting!

    In His time, your trip is going to be perfect!


  2. As Isaiah 55 says, God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are His plans our plans… He is always so faithful in bringing His people through the unknowns in a way that makes us more dependent on Him! Praying for you as you cling all the tighter to the Lord and make your way to Africa! Travel safe my sweet friend!
