Anonymous Donations (!!!!!!!)

1 Thessalonians 5:24 "He who calls you is faithful; He will surely do it."

A friend quoted this verse to me a few days ago, and it has DEFINITELY been a theme in my life recently! About two weeks ago, I received a phone call from an RHI Board member informing me that I had just received an anonymous $5,000 donation to my support.  WOW!!  I was shocked! Honestly, I couldn't even comprehend the information. It was SUCH good reminder that God is in control of this journey.

Then, on Tuesday this week, I spoke with that same Board member .  ANOTHER anonymous donation.  This time? $10,000!!!!!   Really?  REALLY?!! What is going on?!  :)  God obviously wanted to make sure I knew Who was in charge of this process.  I spent an entire year raising that kind of money, and God drops it into my lap instantly! 

It has been a challenge and encouragement to receive this kind of blessing!  I am a person who likes to be in control of things.  Make a list, check off each item, and put everything in its place But the Christian life DOES NOT work that way.  :)  The Lord has a plan for my life AND for my time in South Africa.  I don't know what that is yet, but I KNOW He is trustworthy and will give me grace to handle what comes.

Ephesians 3:20-21  Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

IF YOU ARE THAT GIVER:  thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you.  thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you.   I am writing a special note for you (whoever you are!), and RHI has assured me that you will get it.
