Good things happen to those who Wait!

The beautiful picture on the left is of one of the women who came through the mission and is now helping us minister. She has a precious little 4 year old daughter. They have endured much and by the grace of God overcame! How wonderful it is to see the marvelous work that God can do for those of us who are willing to wait upon Him. It has not always been easy for Michelle, but she fought hard. It was through salvation and honestly seeking the Word of God and listening to Godly and wise counsel that she is where she is today. Only four years ago, she was living day by day just trying to keep a high. There was nothing she would not do to get her fix. Today, she realizes that God has plan and purpose for her other than getting high. She now lives her days out seeking God through His Word and patiently waiting for His direction for her life. She is definitely a new creation. As the book of Ecclesiastes says "He has made everything beautiful in its time." 3:10b and it also says in verse 14 "I know that everything God does will endure forever". By the way, the wonderful man standing next to Michelle is Robert, the father to her 4 year daughter. God does give good things to those that wait!

  1. Thank you for taking those beautiful pictures and for being a part of the transformation God has done in my life and in my families life. Sometimes, you just can't know who you will touch by doing the work of God.
