An Unexpected Answer

The Lord works in mysterious ways. There are times in life when we ask why, and we did a lot of asking  God why a year and a half ago when we were waiting to come to MMS. Why is it taking so long to raise support? we wondered. Why are we still here in Miami county? Maybe we still don’t know the full answer, but last month God showed us a reason.

Treasuring Life

Awhile ago, Brad was called into the office at work. He was told that cost of flight training had been underestimated quite a bit and we would have to go out and raise more support to cover the difference. Then God stepped in. Or perhaps I should say He already had. We were covered! Through the time of our waiting to come to MMS, God was working. It took us 2+ years to get here, but during that time God made provisions to cover the extra flight training expense.

My heart sang when I heard the news and pieced it together in my head. Our Lord is perfect! Even in the times when we were questioning Him and His will for us He WAS there and He WAS doing miracles. It has been exciting to see the numerous ways God is working and the confirmation He sends that this is where He wants us. He is a God worthy of all honor and glory!


We serve a God who can do exceeding abundantly more than we can ask or think! Have a blessed Easter serving the God who CAN!

    It’s when we can’t that He can and does most wondrously! Thank you for the lovely, uplifting message on Resurrection Sunday.

    God has not closed His book of miracles. He is still writing and you are in that story. He is risen, alive, and still very active in our lives. Thanks for sharing!

    Each time God shows Himself faithful, you have a landmark to look back on and know He is still taking care of the details when you are in the middle of not having the answer just yet. Trusting God’s timing is an important part of faithfully serving. Love you all.
