In November of 1994, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, changed my selfish heart to a heart of compassion.  He put an idea in my heart for His impoverished children, rather physical or spiritual.  He told me that most people in the USA have turned their head and heart from television programs that showed the starving and dying children and adults of impoverished nations, especially Africa.  He showed me a way in which to get children and adults to turn their heart from unthankfulness and selfishness to thankfulness and unselfishness.  He gave me the idea of "The Children's Mite".  He wanted me to spread awareness of love, care and concern.  He also told me that since I believed the devastation of impoverished children in Africa, that He was going to put it in a pastor and his wife's heart to send me to Africa.  He knew that my husband and I could not afford such a trip.  He also knew that I longed to visit other nations so that I could spread His love.  To make a long story short, in mid 2007, my husband was invited to attend New Life Church to lead praise and worship.  The Lord impressed my heart to go with him and He instructed me to tell the pastor about "The Children's Mite".  

At the end of the service, the pastor's wife came to me and begin to talk about the mission work they had been doing in Africa for the last few years.  As she was telling me, the Lord again told me to tell her about "The Children's Mite".  As I was telling her, she stopped me and said that the Lord had just told her to pay my expenses to go with them on their upcoming mission's trip.  I was so excited and began to cry tears of joy.  I had waited 13 years for this to come to pass.  I have truly learned that the Lord is faithful to His word.  No matter how long it takes, if the Lord said it, He will do it.  I truly have learned to wait upon Him with thanksgivng and praise.  I'm also looking forward to returning to Africa with my husband and also visiting India some day.  I know that the Lord will once again touch someone's heart to pay our expenses so that we can spread the "good news" of Jesus Christ's loving kindness.  Thanks for caring,
