I must say,
Thank you ALL for your sweet words of encouragement, your support, and your votes!
I didn’t make it to the ‘final round’ of voting, which is more than okay. This isn’t and never was about me. If anything, this process of applying and spreading the word has been a platform to raise even more awareness and share even more stories.
And for that, I’m truly grateful.
There are three ladies, however, who still have a chance to be a part of this incredible team journeying to Rwanda. You can read their stories, and vote for them here!
Because sometimes, we are learning what it means to really hear and follow God’s leadings.
And sometimes, that process isn’t so much about the end goal as it is about the journey there with Him.
But always, His plans for us are for our good and His glory. (Romans 8:28-29)
So each day, we just, arise.
We learn to live a better story of palms upturned, faith unwavering, and heart poised in joyful expectation. And sometimes it’s yes, sometimes it’s no, and sometimes it just, wait.
So that’s what we learn how to do. We wait. And we trust. We dig into the meaning behind that waiting.
And mainly, we do not lose hope.
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19
