He Who Began a Good Work in You...

Two blogs in one sitting! I guess I'm making up for lost time. :-)

I've just read through some of my old blog posts. It's interesting to read and remember the different things I was going through as I wrote. Part of me is like, "Who is this goody-two-shoes?" when I read some of my own words. Lord knows I'm sincere, and the more vulnerable posts taken straight out of my journal entries are about as real as one can get.

I read and see a girl who wants to try so hard to live for Jesus that she forgets to simply abide let Him live through her. She's learning to surrender her will to His and follow His agenda. Sometimes she can be a slow learner!

I'm just thankful the Lord loves me, no matter what. I still have a lot to learn. I choose to rest in this truth:

"He Who Began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it." Philippians 1:6

I'll keep blogging, sharing lessons I'm learning in hopes that perhaps someone else can glean a little truth and encouragement. That makes it all worthwhile.

HPC-Swaziland Interns

See these four beautiful people? Their names are Paul, Tamara, Tyrone, and Karl. They are HPC Swaziland’s 2009 interns. Their last day was this past Friday. Yesterday they shared at church about their experiences as interns, and how their lives have been changed.

Ben and I are so proud of them, and we love them each so much.

Please pray for them, now, as they seek God about their future. Please pray that they’ll keep the faith and always live for Jesus. Pray that the seed deposited in them will multiply and flourish for the Kingdom of God.

God, please bless Paul, Tamara, Tye, and Karl!
