Divine Appointments

In honor of our highschool girls' first week as Freshman, I invited them to Starbucks.

I got there early; bunkered down with my bible, note book and pen; and got a cup of coffee. After waiting about thirty minutes I realized I forgot to remind them about our meeting.

Since I was all the way across town, and I had a iced grande vanilla late in my hands, I decided to hang out and read.

While I was sitting, a woman sat down next to me and we began to chat. It turned out she was a missionary working with Wycliff Bible Translators. It was about then that the man accross from us entered the conversation. Turns out he works for a Missions organization serving in Romania. The three of us had a nice chat about raising support, our ministries (or in my case, perspective ministry), and how we got involved.

It was such a blessing to be at this divine appointment. I love when God puts me where He wants me, then works. Even somthing so simple as having a drink at Starbucks can turn into a conversation about Him.

I left thinking about my future in ministry. I wonder who God will have me meet when I intended to do something else.

wobbly first steps

"And you will recieve power when the spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses to Jerusalem, to all of Judea and Sameria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8

This has been the verse I reference more and more as I grow as a Christian. It seems God has been placing on my heart, his call to the ends of the earth. Since even before Stephen and I married in July, it has been our heart to see the nations brought into relationship with Christ.
Through lots of searching, and even more prayer, we have begun the application process with a missions organization called Asian Access.

It is our hope that we would be sent out to Japan to strengthen and multiply the church there and develop leaders.

So, since it's going to require heaps and heaps of prayer and support to reach this hope, here we are.

We will keep you updated on the process and post whatever pictures we can manage.
My desire is that this will be even more edifying to our readers as it will be to us.

'Til next time,
Kathryn Borba
