As cold water to a thirsty soul,
so is good news from a far country.
It’s a good thing I can’t commission a private jet, or I’d be in the Congo by Wednesday. We got a short (yet very sweet) message (along with updated photos) from Kiffanie this morning and her radiant smile just about made me leap through the computer monitor.
Oh, for a portal through which I could leap to give her a hug! (Indeed we have such portals: Prayer and Time!) It isn’t the instant gratification my impatient heart wants, but I’m glad God has loving arms there (Pastor Didier and his dear wife Annie) to deliver those hugs now, and we trust he’ll open time and space portals for us to do likewise soon. Meanwhile, we rejoice at news from our precious girl, and at God’s hand in her life and ours to bring all this together in His time.
