"Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, Jehovah-Jireh(the LORD will provide); as it is said to this day, "In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided." Genesis 22:13-14

In the scriptures God is given many different names. Each name is a reflection of some part of His character. Jehovah-Jireh translates "the LORD will provide". We have certainly seen this aspect of God's character throughout our lives. But Sunday evening He not only showed up, He showed off! Brad and I had the opportunity to speak before our home congregation on Sunday about our calling. We shared our testimonies and some of the details of our mission. Our Pastor challenged the church family to prayerfully consider how they could help us financially and make committments. We were confident that our brothers and sisters would help and support us, but we had no idea how God would move in the hearts of his people on our behalf. The committments we recieved far exceeded anything we had hoped for. Once again, we found that we had underestimated the power of Jehovah-Jireh. We give Him all glory for this amazing show of support. We also thank our precious brothers and sisters at Hulls Grove Baptist. May God bless each and everyone of you for allowing Him to be His hands and feet as He furthers His kingdom.

Everytime I read your posts I get goose-bumps and I cannot contain my excitement. (Many of my close friends are familiar with your names and story). Our God is so incredible, and it is so fantastic to see how all of you are trusting so completely in this path he has laid for you.

I am so thrilled that I will be able to serve with you this summer once again at CHI. I am thankful to have your family as such an example of faith in my life.

Dios le bendiga siempre.

Love Eliza
