Is this funny or not?

One of the guys in our group just asked this question. Is it wrong to think this is kind of funny?

What is "this" you wonder.

20 missionaries
2 vans and a trailer
6 1/2 hour road trip
week 10 of Outreach and Mobile Team

So we broke down as we were traveling along the Interstate. As the van was being fixed, we were able to eat a nice lunch and utilize the free wi-fi internet at the restaurant. It was not too long a wait and we were headed on the road again. Ned told Ben we needed to get gas so we drove across the street to fill up before hitting the road. Great idea except the van broke down again! We can still see the garage! The mechanic gets the van started to drive over to the garage only to have it break down in the middle of the intersection. AHHH!!

So is it wrong to think "this" is kind of funny?

No, it is not wrong!! Laugh at life! Ask God what the next assignment is. Obviously, we are still supposed to be here. We have found out that the waiter proclaims Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Although, he also said he was mormon?? Not sure about that but he proclaims with his own words that Jesus is the only way to get to heaven.
As we walked back into the restaurant, the staff greeted us and the waiter said, "Well, I guess God has a reason for you to stay here a bit."

So we sit with Bibles, journals, debriefing questionaires, laptops, cell phones and ipods waiting. Giving our lives and our minds and thoughts to Jesus Christ our Lord of Lords! Asking what's next God! We are waiting, being obedient to God regardless of if it seems totally outrageous and radical to the rest of the world!!

So ask yourself: Is this funny or not? Maybe not funny but how is your attitude? Have you given your current situation to God? Trust Him to give you a divine appointment today even if it means breaking down and hanging out at some strange restaurant in Hattiesburg, MS!!

Blessings to all~

What are the Walkers doing right now?

We are moving!!

The last week of August, our family will be moving long-term to Santiago, Dominican Republic. We will be working with YWAM Santiago and the Martin Family! We are super excited about this transition. But also praying for wisdom as we figure out visa's, residency, what to do with our things, etc...

As always, we are praying that the Lord will use us wherever we are!

Lord, help us not to miss the things you have prepared for us to do!
