Our Haiti mission trip is only 11 days away. I can’t believe it one bit. It doesn’t seem like a reality. The reason being is because I was honestly not excited. But that changed tonight.
We had a mission meeting tonight but just for the VBS team that I will be leading. It’s kind of embarrassing to say but it was our first team meeting. It’s been very difficult to meet because everyone’s conflicting schedules but finally we were able to make it happen. Since it was only our first meeting and it’s only 11 days until the trip we had so much to do.
I went into this meeting with a lot of burdens and some anxiety. But to start the meeting I thought it was neccassry to begin with prayer and worship. That time was so crucial and really touched my heart. God gave me the opportunity to breathe once again and remember what all this is for in the first place, which is to worship and serve God.
During the time of worship I encountered true freedom and earnest hunger and desire for this trip. I believe that I wasn’t the only one who faced this. It reflected during our preperation time. While we were practicing the songs and dances everyone was filled with a genuine joy. No grumbling or negativity.
That’s when God reminded me that the mission trip has already started. God has already begun His works in our hearts to prepare us for our next step. I’m so excited to just worship God and have every action be out of worship throughout the preperation and during the mission trip!
I saw God today.
