First of all, I will tell you what I was ready to see. I was ready to see a building site, stones, cement and lots of people working to create a platform for a house. I was ready to meet new friends. I was ready to pray with complete strangers. This, I was ready for. But when we turned the corner in our vans, I saw what I can only describe as slums, houses made from palates, tin, old signs, bed frames, basically anything was usable.
I don't know why but I didn't expect to see this. I do know that God knew I was going to see this, I do know that God's ways are not my ways, His plans are not my plans and I can safely say I am glad He is in control of this and not me.
As you read this I ask you to pray for our team, pray that we will see what God wants us to see, that we will hear what God wants us to hear.
