On the way to Purushila this morning, I prayed. I reminded myself that God's plans are always so much greater than mine. Even if I think I have a great idea or have great plans for the day, if I can let go of them, God will make things turn out even better than I had hoped. So, I prayed to be able to let go.
Well, I was put to the test within minutes. The plan for this morning was to go with Carment to the eye clinic in San Benito with a teenage girl and with Mario Luis and his mother. Norma was going to get her eyes tested for glasses. Mario Luis was to prepare for the next step toward surgery.
I found Carmen! Norma, however, was far away from her home helping her mother in the corn fields. Though Mario Luis was home with his siblings, his mother was far away with an aunt. So, we could not take anyone to the eye center today.
I am trying to live my prayer by not being utterly disappointed. I SO LOOK FORWARD to moving these children one step forward. I know that I am more excited than they are! I have yet to see what God is going to deliver, but I have faith and full confidence that ALL is in His HANDS.
