Japan - Being Flexible & Trusting God

“And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you" (Ps. 9:10).

Coming on this mission trip takes, what feels like, a huge amount of faith and trust in the Lord. To know that some things may go wrong or not as planned but to be able to stop and say "It's okay, The Lords got this". As a team, I have found that no matter what has been thrown our way we have been willing to follow wherever The Lord and Pastor Bob takes us. 

I found that while doing missionary work we can often become so distracted with what we're doing or by our own exhaustion that we forget to have our own time with The Lord. We then lack the spiritual "food" that keeps us strengthened and protected during our ministry. It is up to us to keep each other and ourselves accountable to spend time with The Lord daily. Through these study's together and individually we are able to feel the presence of The Lord no matter where we are or what is going on. He guides us our steps and protects us as long as we stay faithful and seek after him.
