Before I get to the update, I’d just like to say that I find it interesting that most of my posts occur late, late at night (or in this case, very early in the morning!) I’m not sure why. Probably because when I finally sit down long enough to let my mind mull over the events of the day, it tends to be late at night. I find that I think best at night. It’s my time to clear my mind and erase the busyness, the craziness, and all of the clutter that could keep me up…. I guess it’s fair to say that I’m a night owl.
I pray often for God to use the words from this blog to reach people and inspire them in some way or provoke thought. With all the social media networks and avenues available, somebody’s bound to read it…right? If you’re reading this now, it’s probably because you clicked on a link from Facebook or Twitter, or it may just be because you stumbled upon it while searching the Internet. It’s funny to me to see my blog stats. Some days many people read it…. others, not so much. More people read during the day (duh…) than at night. I guess that makes sense since much of the world sleeps at night! So with that said, I’ve learned a little lesson about this blogging stuff and I’ll see what I can do to put it into practice at least some of the time. If I want to reach more people, I’ve got to reach them when they’re awake! Too late for this one, so here we go.
I got an email this week from Tiffany (the BTEA mission coordinator). She has asked all of us to pray and so I’m passing this along. She submitted out flight info to the travel agency and the news isn’t good. The cost of our trip is based on an airfare cost of approximately $1,900. The travel agent has said that the lowest airfare is $2,300 with some as high as $2,600! Flights to Asia fill up in June and July and the travel agent has warned that if we don’t purchase tickets immediately, we stand a chance of not getting any at all! I’m not worried about this issue, as I’ve seen God come through for me in many miraculous ways already. I know that something good must be getting ready to happen because Satan just doesn’t want us to go and he’s already put many roadblocks in my path. Through it all, I know that God has His hand in this and He knows when the time is right to buy the tickets. God is always on time! So, for now, please be praying for wisdom in what to do concerning the tickets (for Tiffany). Please pray for me as I prepare to go. Pray for God’s will to be done in all things before, during, and after this trip.
