Who’s in charge?

posted in: Uncategorized 0

Strange and wonderful things happen on mission trips.  Sometimes these things occur among us.  We have had our first one.

One or our members lost something very important.  Several people looked for the item several times.  No luck in finding it.  Just before we were to leave for the day and there was a great deal of stress about not finding the object, several of us stopped, held hands, and prayed silently that the object would be found and all would be well.  It should be noted that the person who had lost the object had told many of us about how difficult it is for them to pray and that they did not feel comfortable with prayer.

The day went fast, hard, and well.  When we returned, we ate and had a long meeting before the search could begin again.  When the person first started the search again, they looked in the place several (including themself) had searched and found nothing.  The item was right there in plain sight………  We could only hug each other and praise the good Lord for His wisdom and mercy toward us. 

Guess sometimes He just wants to show us who is in charge.
