God has been so good to me...


INCREDIBLE new doors of ministry have flung open in the last week. Confirmation came today. I am going back to Africa MUCH sooner than expected!!! (Not to live...just to visit.)

SHOUT NOW, EVERYBODY!

Details coming soon. Right now I'm just having an HG breakdown. God is soooooooooooo good!

p.s. I do need help getting there. The bill has not been paid yet, but praise God, I'm on my way with God's help through my wonderful family and friends who believe in me and support me. Thank you so much for your prayers. Details forthcoming!

Wow! that is awesome, and I pray the funds will come in to help you. My oldest son has a burden to work in Africa and one day open an orphanage. He is currently working at a church in Maryland and is dating a girl....watch this...that is from AFRICA! God has a wonderful way to always work things out.

*I sent you an email with my email address as you requested.

(and by the way...great interview over a Deborah's place!) -Blessings, Laurie

Thanks Laurie. I can't say enough about your understanding and support. I'm so blessed to have blogging sisters such as yourself who are truly, "women taking a stand"! Gotta love the name of your blog. Awesome!

Much love,
Deanna

p.s. I'm still developing the thick skin after all these years...some days I feel like I'll never "get there"...

I'm so happy for you Pastor Deanna, I see that Africa has won a part of your heart. I know God is going to work things out simply because the people are awaiting your return!

If there's anything I can do to help lighten the load a little - dont have much (yet) but willing and my husband always says, "IF THIS IS ALL YOU'VE GOD - THEN USE WHAT YOU'VE GOT!" Lol
