Questions and Answers

I love God's Word! I am so thankful that He chooses to communicate to His children through it! I have had many questions this past week, and His Word has had an answer for every one...

1. Why is this happening to my husband and my family?

"In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed." 1 Peter 1: 6-7

2. What are we going to do about all our stuff? If we are here another 6 months what are they girls going to wear? All there summer clothes are already on their way to PNG?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?" Matthew 6: 28-30

3. What about all our plans? Will I get to be a tribal wife, like I so desperately want to?

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Thank you, Lord for your faithfulness in our lives! Please give us the chance to share with others who do not have Your hope, comfort, and peace in times of trouble.
"May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in you." Psalm 33:22
