This Week

I honestly had a very difficult time getting into my knitting.  I spent days questioning what God expected me to do with our Ministry after I learned on Tuesday morning that our beloved friend Mwenebolongo had entered into God's Holy presence.  Tuesday was spent crying and trying to find the money we needed to transport his body from the city he was in, to the refugee camp to continue his trip back to Congo for burial.  When you ask in faith, God is ever faithful and He provided exactly the amount we asked for.  I picked up the money on Wednesday and wired it to Tanzania.  I have not heard anything about it yet.  I prayed as I sent it that the Pastor who would  be picking up the funds would remain safe and use it wisely.
God did answer my question concerning the Ministry.  His answer was that when he gave me this assignment, he was fully aware that he would be taking Mwene home before we were able to finish.  My job is to continue with the job he gave me and once I reach the dollar amount he gave me, he will tell me what he wants me to do with it.  So............I started knitting again.

I did not knit this skirt this week, I just managed to finish it.

  1. I'm so glad I've found this page. The one you are talking about is my grandfathe(My dad's father) I used to live with him in Kigoma,Tanzania and we had a good time together. Then I left him and came to USA. Only for me to hear that he died on January 18, 2011. I was so sad and still I am. I don't know what I can do for me to forget him. He was a very, very nice man of God. I miss him so much and all I can pray is that:" God help me so that one day I can see my grandfather again." For I know this is our way. Thanks y'all for your prayers but as you know, we can't refuse what God has planned. Once again thanks.

  2. Jeanine, I was very blessed to have known your amazing Grandfather. I loved him any your Grandmother very deeply. I have been told by God to continue with my knitting and he will tell me if we will still use it to build a Church building in Tanzania or use it some place else. I can only promise you is what money I do raise, will definitely go to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ as your beloved Grandfather would have wanted. I am so sad that I did not get to return to Tanzania to be with him one more time before our Lord took him home. I too look forward to seeing him again someday. I pray now that my return to Tanzania or Congo will be while your precious Grandmother is still with us. Thank you for finding my blog, and check back often so you can see what I am making. God Bless you and your family. I hope that someday I will be able to come to Tennessee and meet all of you.

  3. Thanks. We're looking forward to meet you. May God bless you for what you're doing. And may He bless where that money comes from twice so that His work may continue to go on. Thanks for being such a nice person and so kind to my Grandfather and his wife. We're so glad to have you in our family. Thanks.
