I absolutely love watching God do His thing in this ministry. He stirs hearts. He heals hearts. He draws us toward His plans. And, often He takes our plans, and turns things upside down and inside out. We have watched him do that in this ministry over and over again. He comes in and does it all in a completely different way than we thought. And, this has been a VERY significant discovery for me along the way: His way is not always bigger (or easier) or covered with glitter, but it's ALWAYS best. Oftentimes it's a seemingly harder way, a hidden path, and a slow, but steady growth. In fact, it's the kind of growth that sneaks in and surprises you with its steadfastness, at the very moment that you have your head on the desk wondering what to do next. When we have been stumped, He is not. When we were worried, He was not. When we have felt small, He reminds us that He's mighty. And when we thought we needed glitter and marketing to get more people involved, or to be "like other ministries", He has instead given us all we need through a faithful few.
