Some things are tough to imagine or describe.
This immense structure falls into the category of difficult to imagine (Unless I hadn’t seen it).
Our experience at the Go Fest (very worth while event hosted by WEC) falls into the category of difficult to describe.
It’s a long, really long, extremely long story which I should probably turn into a book some day, however I am only going to tell the most recent bit.
(If you want to get more of the story look up the post titled Amazed.)
Standing in the tent, which housed the booths of so many mission organizations it made me overwhelmed, our eyes caught sight of the Wycliffe sign.
Sis and I were looking for them because the reason we were at Go Fest was to meet an ethnomusicologist Wycliffe had told her about last summer.
Not only did we get to chat with 2 ladies who had been on the field for Wycliffe recently, but received contact information for others who might help Sis to continue on the path to becoming an ethnomusicologist.
The day was filled to overflowing with chats.
We got to meet Rob Baker and he was such a blessing. (Even signed his book for us. Neat read: )
This led to other introductions which further fleshed out the path which needs to be completed for Sis to be able to walk in the calling of God.
Sis was able to sit down with a man who teaches ethnomusicology at two different places. He encouraged her to get her necessary schooling so she can return to the UK to finish up the requirements.
At the end of a very exciting, exhausting, amazing day, Sis was bubbling over with the contacts she had made and the invitation to visit the school here.
As if all this blessing wasn’t enough God had done something else during the first half hour or so of our Go Fest trip.
Our second daughter has had a heart for Africa as long as I can remember.
Her sweet face glowed as she spoke with a missionary from Africa who explained the great need in more than one country.
While she was speaking with him another missionary to Africa was in the same booth and was able to answer my practical questions.
“Our daughter wants to be a nurse and go to Africa to help, what might we need to add to her education and what language does she need to learn? ”
The older man smiled which creased his face all over but mostly around his kind eyes.
“Well I am a doctor and I can say…”
Is there really any reason not to trust God?
Is there anything He can’t do?
Are we not amazingly blessed to have such a Heavenly Father?
I can honestly say:
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. ” Proverbs 23:1
