Last week, I was sitting on my bed thinking about what I should say at the church I was visiting the next morning. I have been speaking every Sunday for about a month about my role with LBT and LBT's role in Bible translation work, but what I say is modified every week as I think about what the Lord might have for me to say. As I listened, this song came to me..."Teach me, Lord, to have faith in what you're bringing me will change my life and bring you glory! There on the storm, I am learning to let go of the will that I so long to control. There may I be in your arms eternally. I thank you, Lord; you are the calmer of the storm."This is the chorus for Downhere's song, "Calmer of the Storm". What an encouragement! It is so comforting to know that no matter what we go through the Lord is with us...always!I'M HOME AGAIN (for a couple months)! Many of you have been praying for me and the family I was nannying for (See previous updates). Jen has made unbelievable progress, and she is almost completely off the IVs!!! Praise the Lord. I am desperately going to miss the four little boys I have come to love so dearly, and my dear kindred spirit who has been a mentor and friend, Jen. But... what a blessing it is to be home early! Now I can spend much needed time with LBT paperwork, reports, and my Hermeneutics directed study.
