Excited!!! SO, so excited

Ladies, I am excited. So, excited. So, so, so, so, so excited!!!!!!!!

Do you know how sometimes you pray for something that never comes? Do you know how sometimes you pray for something that will come but it takes a while? And do you know how exciting it is when you pray for something and within two days God answers? Those times are the best uh ? :)

Well, we just had one of those 3 days answers.

The last few months here in the ministry have been hard. I have mention to you before about how Satan has been attacking and trying to steal our joy, take our desire to work, and try to bring problems to our home. He knows we are here to do the Lord´s work, and that gets in his way. We are telling people that there is a God that loves them and died for them. Satan so do not like us doing that.

Well, lately has been specially hard and we started talking about how nice it would be to step back for a couple of weeks, go back to the States and take some time to refresh ourselves. Some time with our home church getting charged up again. Some time with our christian family and friends for the fellowship. A time to step back and reset goals. I know missionaries out there reading this can understand, especially if you are in a spiritualy hard country like we are.

Well, we found great price tickets. We got the ok from our home pastor. We got two wonderful missionary friends that are going to come and cover the Sundays we will be gone.

So we are leaving in 2 weeks minus 1 day (who is counting ???? :)) and will be there for 3 weeks and 2 days.

I am excited. I am so excited. I am so, so, so, excited.

GOD IS SO GOOD!!!!

Oh wow, I'm so tickled for you.
Croatia is super difficult too so I can relate. We actually did something like that about 5 years ago after my husband and I both had to have emergency surgeries within two weeks of each other and out daughter got very sick during the same time. We took 3 weeks and went home to rest and renew. Have a great time and come back ready to work!

Is God Awesome or what. He does answer our prayers, just like you said, but not always fast as we would like. Start packing and enjoy your time home.

Oh sweet friend, I rejoice with you! We just returned from a brief stint in the US as well. Although we went for a memorial, God used our time to refresh our entire family. May He pour out His abundant blessings and drench you with His goodness.

Thanks for splashin' around with me on my blog,

I am so happy for you and your family. Will pray that this will be a wonderful, relaxing time and that it will go by a little slower in order for ya'll to soak up every minute. It is so encouraging to hear how God answers prayers so quickly some times. Take care.

I am SO VERY happy for you!!!

Taking a little time apart is something everyone needs once in a while. I pray the Lord will use it to be a time of rest, refreshing, and encouragement for you and your family.

Enjoy your time away!
