318 – What? Lay Down
September 12, 1988
My parents sent $100 for the motor home trip. Life Center Church sent $220. Praise God!
What we know so far about our excursion is that we will follow up on the contact we made with Phyllis Rhinehart at the Elim Camp Meeting a few weeks ago. She is in a small church in New Jersey and works with Japanese who are new to the US. She is retiring and asked us to come to see the work she is doing in hopes that we would take her place and live in New Jersey. From there we will go to North and South Carolina to visit my Mom’s relatives. That’s what we know so far.
I have been praying about foods because I felt we were eating a lot of meat and that it was not good for us. In my devotions today:
Deuteronomy 12:15 However, you may slaughter and eat meat within all your gates, whatever your heart desires, according to the blessing of the Lord your God….
I heard, Georgann, don’t worry about eating all of this meat. Bless it and go for it.
Deut 12: 18 and you are to rejoice before the Lord your God in everything you put your hand to.
Always a good reminder,Lord.
Dan’s brother Aug called. Al called him. Al is the man whose family God used to draw Dan to the Lord. He got saved while living with them in Colorado. Al wants to see us, has been thinking about us. Praise the Lord. Perhaps we can stop at his place on the way West.
After my walk Dan and I prayed our regular prayer list which we haven’t prayed together for weeks. I felt I heard very clearly, as it was my turn to pray for Japan: Lay down your plan.
Our plan for Japan? Our plan for traveling to the east before we head west?
Our plan for getting back to Reno to see Dan’s grandmother? Aug said she wants to see the boys one more time.
We prayed but got nothing definite. It remained a mystery for another year or so.
