Our daughter is in Haiti. After being there a short time she learned she would need $750 for unexpected expenses. The family she is with needs $5000 and the ministry they are serving needs many times that.
As I struggled through this, the Lord was patient until I came to terms with trusting Him and not looking at lack of communication or for someone to blame.
Today it hit me that the Lord had perhaps given us a challenge equal to our faith. We were only asked to have faith for what we could scrounge up. Our friends were asked to have faith for what they don’t have but can possibly come up with in the future. The ministry has to have faith every day for needs they cannot see anyway of ever meeting by their own means.
It is true; these people in Haiti are giants in faith. They trust in the Lord NOT circumstances. What an example to me of Psalm 37: 5 “Commit your ways to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this.”
