Before leaving for our mission trip to Haiti, God was preparing our hearts. We both knew that God wants us to be successful in all areas in our lives including our finances. He wants that, not for our own selfish reasons, but to gain influence and to further God's kingdom. However, until we stepped foot in Haiti, we were letting our own fears and comfort stop us from allowing God to use us in much bigger ways.
Haiti, for us, was the missing link to our passion. It has given purpose behind our passion. It has strengthened our marriage and bonded us together in much deeper ways. We both know there is no turning back now. It has allowed us to lead our children by example, and to bring them along on this incredible journey God has our family on.
Here's what I'd like to tell you from what I've learned-- say yes to God! Allow yourself to face your fears and step out of your comfort zone. You will never be alone. God will be with you every step of the way. He will bring people into your life that will help carry you when you are weak, and encourage you, even when everyone else tells you it's not possible. Don't doubt God. He is so big, and with Him anything is possible.
