For the next 10 days, my right hand has left the country. He will be halfway around the world serving on a mission project with 11 others from the Ebenezer Youth Ministry. That’s right, Drew is on his way to Kenya.
I remember MONTHS ago when Justin challenged our youth to pray and ask God if He was calling any of them to go. Drew got his answer pretty quickly. After a couple of weeks, I asked Drew “Have you been praying about it?” He assured me that God had given him a clear YES and he was just waiting on every one else to catch up. Then, a lump in my throat: I wondered if Drew was taking it seriously… Little did I know that my son was intently listening to God and just waiting on His next move. As a general rule, we adults DON’T DO THAT often enough. We want God to lead and bless, but the truth is we want to keep moving. We have a problem with being still and knowing He is God. Makes me proud that my son was doing exactly what he should’ve been doing: waiting on God.
And now, the wait is over. And he is on his way! And I’ll be without my right hand for a few days. But that’s okay … He might be my right hand, but his heart belongs to His Savior. I wouldn’t have it any other way!!
