Before each meeting, Me and Anita would pray for God's words and not our own. We didn't plan or strategize how we were going to share, but left all of that open to the Spirit's leading. Really giving each meeting to God, helped me to conquer my fears and really open my heart to people. It has been a growing experience for me. I now feel better equipped and secure knowing that more people are lifting up me in prayer as well as the people that I work with...Marilyn,her family and the youth and children who live in poverty. I feel more prepared to return and pursue relational missions and discipleship.
My reason for coming to Canada for the last 2.5 months was to build a foundation of people to partner with God's mission in Costa Rica and also to simply reconnect. Even though one of the reasons I came was due to financial issues, I felt compelled from the start to come simply to share and encourage. The focus has been off of my finances and on connecting with people and seeking prayer for my ministries. I know that God is able to provide for my needs and that he will bring the right people to partner with me. The blessings I have recieved simply by sharing in fellowship here far outweigh's anything else that could come from it.
