"For the Lord will rise up as at Mount Perazim, He will be angry as in the Valley of Gibeon - that He may do His work, His awesome work, and bring to pass His act, His unusual act" (Isaiah 28:21). The latter part of this verse seems to describe best how this week went. I love how it says, "...His UNUSUAL act..." To me, that speaks of when the Lord does things that are hard to explain or grasp. At the beginning of this building project, we projected with a crew of 8, it would take 6-8 weeks to lay 8,000 blocks for the outer structure of the orphanage. Well, the Lord has done His awesome work...His unusual act. After only 2 weeks of working...we have about 1,200 blocks left to lay, which means we should be finished by end of next week. If that isn't "unusual" enough, our total count of blocks needed comes to 5,200 block, rather than 8,000.
Thank you Jesus that You do Your work, your AWESOME work. And when You do that awesome, unusual act, we can stand in awe, unable to explain the very hand of God at work!
Tomorrow after church, we will be heading back up to Creel for another visit to the orphanage. There is no school on Monday, so the entire Vargas family will be able to join us. We are greatly looking forward to a time of hanging out with the children, singing songs, playing games, cooking them food and loving on them. Please be praying for safe travels up there and our time with the kids! Looking forward to sharing more photos!
