Thinking back on that now shocks me because only 2 of those were planned before I arrived. As a missionary you live on what others give to you.
I flew with my laptop back home and when I had gotten there tried turning it on and it was broken. I didn't have the money for a new one and was wondering "why" I was praying about it for a reason and for it to work. So that morning my mom walks into the living room where I was doing quiet time and asked what kind of size computer I needed because an independent Mac store wanted to give me one. I told her what would be nice and the next day a new MacBook Pro shows up way better then the previous one I had. This still shocks me but I know that God had a plan and I am so grateful. He is so faithful, even in the small things he always seems to provide our needs.
One day while back home we decided we would do a day trip to Chicago. A man stopped me on the street and handed me a couple Bible tracts, I said to him I was already a Christian and he should give them to someone else, he handed me a few more and said "no, you give some out to people too." I walked away thinking about this and his response. That was the best answer he could have possible given me. That evening on the train I felt Holy Spirit urging me to talk to the man behind me on the train. He was reading a JW book, so I struck up a conversation with him and gave him some of the tracts I got as well sharing with him why she should read the Bible and asking God to show him truth instead of relying and reading JW material. Before saying goodbye I told him I would pray for Him, he was so encourage through everything. He was so hungry for truth that He took anything he could get his hands on and thy was why he was reading that stuff, people are hungry and its so important that they get their hands on TRUTH.
One thing I haven't experienced that much in the past couple years in snow.
Finally, April 3 we flew back to Germany and April 5th Zac arrived where he will serving along side me for the next 2 months.
