Only 3 days until we can register for the seminar! I've done a quick cost analysis of the trip and we are certainly facing a God-sized vision. Chris and I both feel that this seminar will give us tools for the ministry that we would have a difficult time getting otherwise. I may be being a little too honest here, but part of me feels like there is no way we can spend this much for this trip and have someone take care of our precious babies for 6 days. The flight, car rental, hotel, food, and the actual cost of the seminar; not to mention figuring out the timing - a 2 hour drive to Dulles, then the flight, then a 3 1/2 hour drive to Bend after we land in Portland - that's day 1. The last day we have to time well enough to land in Dulles and not be too exhausted to drive home another 2 hours. On the other hand, I know that, even if it is in the last second, God will provide the way for us to attend. The hard part for us is going to be stepping out in faith, knowing that God will catch us. Like those stunt guys who look like they are leaping off of a cliff into the abyss - what they are really doing is jumping onto a big pillow; we just don't see that part. I feel like that stunt guy, getting ready to jump off of the cliff; but, deep down, I KNOW that God will be there :-)
This is just the beginning of so many amazing things He will do and I am excited!!!!!
