It's been a sweet ride!!
From here to there!
So, If I could put all that has been happening over the past few weeks/months in a single word, I would probably be 'STRETCH'!!
Sometimes when you say yes to God, you need to be stretched to be able to do your part. Here at Ember Ink, when we said yes to doing a Discipleship Training School (DTS) we soon realised all that needed to happen...
But its happening, its exciting, and we're nervously confident at what God can do as we look, dream and plan!! One thing we have realised is that as we humble ourselves, trust and obey, He directs our paths and as we focus on building His Kingdom not our own, He does what we cannot!!
For those of you that are unaware of what a DTS is please click through here
as it may give you a bit of an idea what we are heading into...
Our new website is almost done!!
As we launch it before the end of this month please pray that the little finishing touches that always seem to take more time than intended would come together and we could use it to promote and draw attention to the upcoming DTS (Discipleship Training School) in the fall of 2012!
We have been greatly taken care of financially over the past month with some timely and much appreciated gifts. A couple of examples are a few weeks ago we had some bills piling up and extra expenses, particularly from our recent move that all added up to $2000 that we just didn't have and didn't know where it was coming from.
Angela then received a phone call from a friend who pledged the exact amount needed and we found out later that God had been prompting her to give for a little while but when she finally did it was exactly when we needed it. Just this week, I took some more needs to the Lord in prayer, we had another committment that we just couldn't make and literally later that day we recieved an anonymous donation of $1000!
We are so grateful for His constant care and provision and for people willing to give towards our work and vision. Whether your gifts have been large or small we are grateful for your sowing into Ember Ink and we are excited to see the fruit that will begin to appear as we persevere and continue to step out in faith.
