This was written initially for our Team France (a group of us going over to Paris, France to plant a church), but I thought it had some awesome truths others might benefit from.
Is everybody getting excited about France?! Are you packing your bags? Are you believing and speaking the impossible. Ken and I tell people without hesitation that we are leaving in September- October. This week the Bible story the kids and I are doing all week is the story where Jesus feeds the 5,000 through the boy who gave Jesus 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. We talked about how 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread could not even feed our family… and yet at just the right time God multiplied the food to not only the right amount, but they had food left over.
As I look at our support and as most of you look at yours, what’s coming in monthly right now could not even feed your family for a month, but Ken and I believe God wants to show himself through our team, not only in planting a large vibrant church, but also in how we get there. We also believe that Avant (the organization we are going with) took into account many issues, and spent much time in prayer in choosing this time table. Therefore we believe God is going to do it. This is just one of the many first and crazy things we are going to believe so that the world can see all of Jesus and none of us.
