Last week was a particularly lean week for us during which God was testing our trust in His care and provision. With many calls, few people seeming to be interested, and expenses rolling in without hope of income, we were praying that God would give us grace to overcome the discouragement that seemed to be settling upon us.
We sent off our Jan/Feb prayer letter this past weekend. And people must have started praying for us. $2,200.00 came in (covering the needs mentioned in the previous post) and eight meetings were scheduled. Eight meetings! In one week! That has never happened before. This brings us up to 24 scheduled meetings for 2008 (counting the two behind us already). By the end of the week, we were shaking our heads in wonder as to how we ever could have doubted during the previous week, and we were rejoicing at God’s faithfulness through it all.
