The Rainbow after the Storm

Have you ever been in one of those storms? You know, the kind where the steady drum of rain beating on your windows becomes your everyday companion, and those ominous, murky clouds seem to forever be blocking out the sun. And then, you finally see it. A rainbow.
Spread across the horizon, it is a message of hope and promise. While we were not in a literal storm this month, as the quarantine droned on and the economic storm of our country grew bleaker by the day, it was hard not to let those doubts creep in. We had bought our tickets for December, but when were we even going to be able to get back on the road?
Would we be able to finish raising the rest of our support in time? Would churches even want to risk supporting missionaries in these hard times? Then, one morning in my devotions, I read I Thessalonians 5:24, “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” I know this verse. I had memorized it as a child, and yet on that early spring morning, all at once my doubts came crashing down, and the promises of God’s Word shone through. He has called us here. He will provide a way.
That truth of Scripture was the first rainbow. My God would still be good even if
revealing this truth was all that happened this month, yet my God is so much better to me than I deserve. The second rainbow was the opportunity to continue to share our heart for Peru during these unique times. This past month, I was afforded the opportunity to be a part of two different virtual mission’s conferences, one drive-in service, one recorded Sunday evening service, and one video chapel service. What a blessing to continue to move forward with deputation! Thank you so much to those of you who were praying with us for these
opportunities! The third rainbow came when we received a letter from our mission board, informing us that several churches had sent in special offerings for our set up fund, allowing us to move forward with getting our passports! Then, the last rainbow came when we received our statement for the month. Four new churches chose to partner with us, one of which we have never even been to, and six new churches who had previously promised support started sending in this month! I was humbled by the generosity and the heart for missions that God’s people displayed, even in the midst of these times. What an amazing God we serve who lets us see the rainbows after the storm.

Praises

  • Thank you so much for praying with us for more meeting opportunities. This month we were able to be a part of four virtual services.

Prayer Requests

  • Please be praying with us for safety as we begin to get back on the road.
