It is the Lord's doing and it is marvelous in our eyes.

This past weekend our church had out missions convention and it was great. Everyone did a really wonderful job and I had a great time. Sunday night at the banquet Pastor Dodd commissioned me and it was very emotional and exciting. I had been praying for months prior about what to speak about at the convention and the title of my sermon was "Are You Dining With Sinners". I prayed for the Holy Spirit to annoint me and I believe He did. I can only hope and pray that it truly stirred the hearts of those who were there. Quite a few people told me they are going to support me financially which is great. I also received a $1,250 cash offering and my church is going to support me $200.00 a month; which is truly a blessing.

This morning on my way to watch the children that I bring to school I was just praying and thanking God for His faithfulness with my funds and such. I prayed that He would continue to bring in the funds and put me on people's heart who are supposed to support me. As soon as I arrived at the house and sat down Becky, the lady whose children I watch, said, "Kristal, can you bring some of your pledge forms tomorrow because I have some friends that want to support you." Inside I was jumping up and down. How cool is that? I just prayed and then people who I don't even know want to support me. Isn't that just like God?
