Jesus is faithful, we say it a lot, but time and time again when there has been many reasons to doubt and question God, in the end He has shown himself strong and completely trustworthy.
It turned out us staying an extra 6+ months instead of heading straight to Cambodia in January was in God’s plan all along. Even though the required brain scans that caused the delay were necessary, they came back all clear eventually.
In the meantime we found out the underlying cause of my (Steve’s) fatigue. A close family member suggested I had a food tolerance test (a simple blood test) and the results came back that I was intolerant to wheat, cows milk, coffee(!) and some other things. As soon as we cut those things out of my diet I had full 100% energy again. Energy levels I haven’t had in about 7 years!
Not only did the extra time bring clarity on my health but it also enabled us to make an extra trip back to Redding, California to get the rest of our stuff, see some close friends and have time in a place that is very special to our hearts.
Jesus used this time to do some things that absolutely astounded us and powerfully ministered to our hearts (click here to watch a video we recorded with bethel while we were out there). Not only did He hugely minister to us but He also impacted our kids. Particularly our oldest child Grace who one night -while she was praying - Jesus walked into her room, told her He loved her, as He said that -she said she, “felt lightning going through her body”. She seemed so impacted after that moment she wanted to tell everyone!
This once again reminds us that we can not only trust Jesus with our very lives and destiny in Him, but we can also trust Him with the precious hearts of our children as we transition to a completely new place with Him in this chapters ahead.
We have booked flights to fly to Cambodia at the beginning of August and are so excited for the things that Jesus has planned!
