We struggled through and somewhere around the beginning of Feb. felt we got a word from the Lord that we were still on the right track to be itinerating for our return to Cape Town. But we didn't get any clear answer about God's timing, which remains a mystery.
After the answer from God, funds started coming in, but we still haven't reached our budget and we are running out of time, given our school schedule in Cape Town. God's timing is still a mystery: I know He is never late but seldom early. I just wish I knew which deadline to apply that to.
An excerpt of what I journaled during devotions the other morning:
Right now our return to Africa has something akin to the Rapture about it. We believe it will happen, but feel compelled by daily realities to live as if it probably won't happen right away. This feels wrong to me.
