God has literally dropped supporters in our lap! Back in May one person told us that her family wanted to support us, even before we had even gotten approved. The same thing happened with our home church, Ivy Creek. Both sets of our parents started supporting us this month. But then God led someone's heart to just send Derek a message on Facebook, telling him that her family wants to support us! And with one other family member getting behind us, we were up to about 7%, which was awesome! But I started to doubt the goal because we only have one more week before I'm induced with Atticus, and I just honestly had no idea how we were going to find time to speak to anyone during this last, crazy week. And once again, God showed me that my faith is so small!
Some very dear friends graciously told us over lunch this weekend, "You know, you don't have to ask us to support you. We're already going to. And this is how much we want to give..." With their support, God exceeded our goal, as we now have reached almost 11% of our monthly support needs; there is literally no other explanation than that God brought all of our supporters to us!
I'm sure I'm supposed to be spiritual enough to not be surprised at all with how God has come through with this, but acting as if I knew it would happen the whole time would be dishonest. I'm blown away time and time again at God's provision and how he just seems to be opening doors for us to get to Romania. It is so encouraging to us, because it helps us see that this is God's plan - not ours. We are truly not in this journey alone, and that is the best support we could possibly receive!
