God is so good

We stand amazed at the goodness of our God on a regular basis. Since we sent out our newsletter, we have received all the money we need for this trip. Our tickets are purchased and our room is paid for and we will have some money left over to use for our Lativian/Romanian trip in Oct. we think. Where God sends He provides. We learned this lesson early in our ministry when we were in School. We would lay out our bills on a table and pray specifically for God to provide the exact amount for each one. It was such a faith adventure as we would time and again get mail from someone saying I have no idea why I am sending you $10. 54 but that is the amount God put on my heart today. And you know what? It would be the exact amount for a bill that was due. One time I remember praying for 3 postage stamps because I did not have enough money to buy them. That afternoon I got a letter from a friend in Florida who included 3 stamps with a note saying, why 3 stamps? I am just being obedient. Sometimes an extra job would open up and it would pay the exact amount we needed. God is so good and has a great sense of humor. So no matter what you are dealing with or what your need is , whether physical, financial, or emotional may we remind you to just ask Him, he cares and is able to provide your every need above and beyond your wildest imaginations.
Please continue to pray for us as we prepare. We are being tested by God in many areas right now to purify our hearts. It is good, but not fun to be shaken. Oh the joy of knowing Him as He reveals Himself to us in this season.
We would love to hear your stories of how God is working in your lives also.
Blessings to you all,
Wayne and Sherry
