When we started deputation, I wanted a minivan or an RV. I wanted the extra space and flexibility these vehicles would give me. God said no so I asked Him to show me how to be happy in the vehicle we had. He took us to a church that gave us a basket carrier for the back of our vehicle that truly made a difference. When Michael was born, we knew our vehicle wasn’t going to work with all the stuff a baby needs.
I asked God to either give me a larger vehicle or show me how to make what we have work.
God has given me meetings I have to fly to which means the family will probably have to stay home. He also gave my daughter, Alana, mono. That means she’s going to not be able to travel for a few months. Finally, He’s given me several short distance or quick trips that mean we don’t have to pack as much.
All this means our current car still works very well for deputation. God does things a little differently than we expect sometimes but it’s always the best way.
