Unfortunately I have nothing new to report in regards to my dossier submision. This is the 4th week since my dossier was mailed to Brigita's country. Technically any time now I could hear that I have been submitted, receive the referrals, and there after travel dates. Though I know and trust that God's timing will be revealed, I still can't help but anxiously wait! I am so glad I have a smart phone that alerts me when I have emails. Otherwise there is no telling how often I would be checking my email. Actually, it would probably be best if I didn't have a smart phone. I can't check my personal email at work and then would have to wait until I got home to check my email. Maybe cut down on some of the obsession. Every time I hear my phone ding I'm jumping to check it. Mornings are the worst. Her country is ahead of us in time. So when I wake up, its after lunch in her country. But my agency is 3 hours behind my time. So I have to wait for them to get to work to check their email. I really know that I most likely won't receive the email about submission until probably 9pm my time. But I still anxiously check every email alert I get no matter what time of day. God is so faithful. He knows our inner most thoughts and feelings. He led me to the following verse:
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD you God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
The benefit that Madeline Monroe put together in Wisconsin went fabulously! They raised $700 with a spaghetti dinner, silent auction, and donations! I am so grateful to Maddie, her family, their church and church family, as well as all the others that attended the event. Thank you all and I pray that God blesses you!!!
