Realism or lack of faith?

So it's now six weeks exactly until January 1st, the approximate date I had in my head that I would be leaving for Africa, and I still don't even have my assignment yet. This means that no official fund raising has begun (and I'll be needing to raise, in my best estimate, $8000 - $10,000 BEFORE I'm allowed to leave). No visas have been applied for (cause I don't even know for sure what country I'm going to). No plane tickets have been bought (don't they get more and more expensive closer to the date?). There's a heck of a lot that has to happen AFTER I get my assignment.

I'm starting to accept the possibility that I won't be going first thing in January. But then there's a little voice inside my head that says, "Oh you of little faith, why do you doubt?" I know God CAN do it, but I guess I'm just starting to wonder if he WILL.

Prayers are much appreciated!!! That assignment needs to come through SOON!

hmm, patience and trust. what a good little lesson to begin your adventure with!!!! haha.

our plan is always so one-sided, so faulty, so full of cracks. God has got a plan for this, Hillzzzz, and His is good and solid.


i'll be praying for you! for peace of mind and also - that people are feeling the tug on their pocketbook to write some checks. :)

love you - sarah

umm, and i hope that didn't come across as condescending... i say all of that from being smack dab in the middle of needing patience and trust!!!
