OK y’all. We know. Things are moving soooooo slooooowwwwwly…at least from our earthly perspective. But we wanted to let you know that things are indeed moving, even if at a crawl’s pace. And in efforts to prevent discouragement from settling down, we practice remembering all that God has done and keeps doing to lead us in this journey. And we trust His faithful character. Here are a few recent things we’re celebrating.
- We have a realtor diligently working to help us find the location that God has for us. That last phrase is key. We only want to be where God would have us go. And we’re trusting that He will continue to guide us.
- We have a team of gifted, gifted (did I say “gifted”?) people waiting on the sidelines. Seriously. God has raised up an amazing team of men and women who stand ready to use their gifts to serve the mission of Hannah’s Haven through The Bridge. The Lord keeps awing us and we’re so thankful.
- Hannah’s Haven officially owns the business name: “The Bridge Coffee & Thrift.” Woohoo! Government hurdles have been jumped.
- The Lord has begun to bring in the funding. In essence, Hannah’s Haven is starting a small business with the goal of sustainable income for the ministry. And as you know, starting a business costs money. But the Lord is already prompting people to give. In the coming days you’ll hear more about our financial goals and ways you can help.
All of that to say, though we in our humanity wish things were moving more quickly, we’re excited. And we see our God leading us. Please continue to pray that the Lord would bring us to the right location and then provide all the funding we will need to get The Bridge off the ground.
Pressing in and pressing on!
