God Sightings Part III

Really Living Television Interview

Jamie and I were interviewed on April 29 by Elder Don Schneider for “Really Living” TV. What a wonderful opportunity to tell about how God has led and is leading; to share how awesome our God is. In a way it was like posting the stories of his leading on the doorposts and wearing them on our foreheads. (Watch for this program to be aired in July on the Hope Channel.)

It was also very humbling to recall how God could take two miserable sinners and give them life and breathe and depth. Thank you, dear Jesus, for loving us.

“He found them in a desert land, in an empty howling wasteland. He surrounded them and watched over them; he guarded them as he would guard his own eyes. Like an eagle that rouses her chicks and hovers over her young, so he spread his wings to take them up and carried them safely on his pinions.” Deuteronomy 32:10-11

Small but important things—The Lord provides!

I am leading an ENT team to Chuuk starting Thursday, May 7, 2009. We needed two things to happen for the trip. The first is that the shipment of medical supplies and equipment that had been shipped by container, needed to be picked up in Chuuk and delivered to their hospital. The second is for the shipment from our orthopedic trip to Kwaj needed to return to U.S. and clear customs so that I could retrieve the anesthesia box and take it with us to Chuuk.

The evening that we came back from the interview on “Really Living”, I received an email telling me that Dr. Kennedy had been unable to locate the shipment in Chuuk. I was also told that the boxes from Kwaj might take two weeks to clear, which would be too late for me to pick them up. The staff prayed! And the next day, the shipment was found in Chuuk and the Kwaj boxes had cleared customs in the U.S.! God is so good!

“So don’t worry about these things, saying ‘what will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear? These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:31
