Note from Lorin: "God Instances"
|Chris M, Esther, Lorin at The Shed|
First, I met Chris M. from Chicago and had a chance to work with her on Wednesday and got to know her. We both enjoyed each other's company and as Chris M. was joining the team for dinner on Thurs. someone rearranged the seat "assignments" in the cars so that Chris and I could ride to The Shed together.
Next, Bu noticed that we'd made a "connection," so he volunteered to trade job assignments with me for Friday so that Chris and I could work together again. (Thanks Bu, sorry your sacrifice meant that you had to clean up rat poop. You were a blessing to your "honorary mom.")
- we'd both chosen not to come work with Habitat
- we'd both chosen different weeks
- we'd stayed at different camps at night
- we had not switched car rides
- if Bu didn't take a "bullet" by making the sacrificial trade
We loved having Chris join us and she later mentioned how lucky we were to have our church and the love of the people there. She feels that the Lord is calling her back into a deeper relationship with Him and she credited our team with having a big part in that decision. Please pray that the feeling Chris experienced will continue to encourage her and that she will find a church group that will bless, support, and continue to encourage her.
