Amy's working tonight so I'm just finishing some final packing for our trek to Soul Fest tomorrow! All of us are so excited to spend four days with thousands of 'friends'- spending time with their own families and and worshiping God together.
Last night I completed my next assignment for my online class so I wouldn't have to worry about trying to submit any assignments while at the festival this weekend. -- Which reminds me...
I remember last year trying to carve out time during the kids mid-day naps - I had to get a term paper done and submitted...what a project... what was worse, I came down with strep throat that week too. That was ridiculous.
Anyway, the #teamzipf camper is ready to roll and we're ready for some R n R together.
I'm also looking forward for the time away to pray and reflect with Amy too... I'll be looking to make some connections for ministry opportunities in the region as well. At this point, I'm grateful for the connections and encouragement that God has provided so far. I"m sure God has just the right fit for us... but He's not yet made clear where that will be. We'll keep pushing on doors and praying for guidance, none the less.
We know that God has our best interest in mind and we know that he has led us through the experiences that he has for a reason... The refining process isn't easy, but what we do know is that God is leading. want to use the best of what we have to minister here in New England.
We don't know yet where God will place us, but we will continue to trust that He's leading in that direction even now.
Meanwhile, we will continue to "...trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledge HIM... and trust that He will make our path straight. (from Prov. 3:5-6)
