Week 10 was a pretty momentus week as I saw my first clients in the clinic. The preceding week had been pretty busy and I knew I was stretching myself a little bit. All of the sessions went pretty well and it was a surreal feeling to actually be counseling people. And then…week 11.
I got absolutely slammed by a pretty nasty cold. This one laid me out for 7 days straight and I am just now coming out of it. It was not a fun time and I did absolutely nothing productive. I guess that goes to show that even when you feel like you have no time…sometimes God shows you otherwise. It was a pretty rough week and we are still adjusting to two kiddos. But some pretty good and important conversations were had during that time and God continues to bring us to the end of ourselves to show us what it means to depend on him. 2 Corinthians 1:9 certainly was ringing true.
“9 Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead.”
On the support raising front we had some exciting things happen. I was finally able to send out a bunch of emails a couple weeks ago and we are getting some responses. It’s so cool to see people willing to support us. One family decided to give their whole year’s pledge in one month…we are continually blown away!
Thank you Jesus.
