Hello dear friends,
I have been out of touch for a while now. But I
want to share my new plans with you! About a year
ago I visited a very nice older lady who has an
organization that helps young people who have
cancer. She offered to support me if I wanted to
go on vacation anywhere. I did not accept her offer on the summer, because I didn’t feel strong enough to travel nor did I know where to go to. I would have loved to go to El Salvador, but for a trip there my immune system still needs to get a lot better. By the end of the summer the lady called me again and encouraged me not to wait much longer. The dream of seeing the fall in Colorado, USA has been growing in me. It has always been my dream, but it has never been possible.
To make a long story short, I am about to leave for Colorado with my dad as a “tag-along” next week. I am amazed at how God is opening doors and taking away all obstacles like passport, meds… I am doing really well lately and so I really want to take this opportunity. “Coincidentally” my dad is able to manage work in a way that he will be able to come with me, because I couldn’t go alone.
We have a great god. I know He will give me the strength I need to for example visit a bunch of friends during the time I am there. He has the finances in His hands and He will bless this time. I still can’t believe that this really seems to be happening. He will sort my thoughts and help me to not be overwhelmed. I love to be out in nature with my God where I can experience His greatness even more. I am excited to see what the next few weeks will bring.
A brief update about my current situation:
We still haven’t been able to talk with Heidelberg. But I also haven’t really been thinking about calling (and if I did it was the wrong time). It wouldn’t change anything about my current situation, though. If you think about it, please pray for strength and wisdom. I want to use this time to praise Him and thank Him for His faithfulness.
That makes me think of a little story I want to share quickly. Maybe it will help one or the other. A man enters a salon to get a hair cut. While they talk, the stylist says: “ I don’t think there is a god, because otherwise there wouldn’t be any pain and suffering… all the wars and tragedies.” The man said goodbye and left. After a while he comes back and says to the stylist: “ I don’t think there are stylists.” The stylist asks “Why not?” The man: “When I just left and walked out on the street I met a long-haired, scruffy man. If there were stylists the guy would have a great hair cut.” The stylist said: “He could came and let cut his hairs...”
There wouldn’t be war if all people would love and follow Jesus, but He have us a free spirit.
Blessings to you
