People keep asking me what the plan is. I know what my plan is. But, I am not sure what His plan is. My plan is to spend the first week in prayer…seeking His plan. Although we are anticipating a small gathering this Sunday, we really do not want to start things until next Sunday. We want to spend this first week getting adjusted to our new life and making sure we are in His will. After that, we are hoping to have daily morning prayer, weekly Sunday worship (in up to three locations), a women’s fellowship, a youth group, and weekly healing prayer meetings.
On the orphanage front, the first order of business is to set up a non-profit (or Trust, as it is called here). Then, we want to identify and visit many of the major orphanages/children’s homes in the area to develop relationships and to gather ideas. By the end of the year we want to have concrete plans for the implementation of the project. We want to also draft up a proposal to submit to an organization that will hopefully donate their time and skills in drawing up architectural and engineering designs.
Many children have been orphaned by the earthquake in Kashmir. So, I am beginning to feel a sense of urgency to get something set up (even if it is just make-shift for now) to help those children.
We need to find dedicated workers who will partner with us.
I am also hoping to spend a significant amount of time writing. My goal is to write a book over the next six months. I have a few ideas. I just need to be disciplined. It is so easy to put things off until "tomorrow."
Perhaps I am being overly ambitious…we’ll see. I always say, "Reach for the moon. Even if you don’t quite reach it, at least you can grab a few stars along the way."
Scripture for the Day:
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 1:20-21.
