God you are funny…

Well, this weekend was packed full of opportunities. We had dinner with friends, led worship, prayed for the nation, worshiped at a river, and even shared at a church instead of the sermon. The Lord has been so good to us since we have been here in Pittsburgh. I am amazed at the connections that the Lord has brought our way. I feel so blessed to not only enjoy the beautiful fall scenery here but to be able to see the beauty of God in people’s hearts. Our schedule is often last minute, the Lord is teaching me how to walk in step with His spirit. Sometimes I try and plan things out, until I realize I am not the one in charge here. There are little gifts along the way, things like bright red trees, warm apple cider, cozy farmer’s markets, and belly laughs. God you are good.

Cathedral of Lights

I want to take a moment to share with you a story from this week. Monday, I felt it would be good for us to go a university here in the Pittsburgh area and pray. So that night we wrote out a list of local universities. We weren’t sure where to start so we tore up the paper and decided to draw three. One of the girls grabbed the coffee pot, instead of a bowl, and gave it a quick shake. One fell out, proceeded by 2 more. Pittsburgh University was one of which. So we decided the next day to go and pray there. The next morning I was on the phone with a local pastor’s wife. I told her where we were going and she got excited. She told me that she was going to be sharing there that night about justice and invited us to come. We went to the campus and settled down with the guitar on the Heinz chapel steps facing a building called the Cathedral of Learning. We worshiped and prayed there for a while. Later that night we met the pastor’s wife and went with her while she shared. The group she was sharing with met in the Cathedral. The next morning at the grocery store the newspaper caught my eye. The front page boldly read, “Cathedral of Lights.” I couldn’t believe my eyes. We had no idea, but while we were in the building there was a light show right outside lighting up the entire cathedral. The previous afternoon we had been praying for God’s light and truth to penetrate this campus. We didn’t know the Lord would take us so literally!

it’s been too long

Well, I am humbled by the lack of updates on this thing, but I’ll try to make it up to you!  We have been super busy, and it’s been a little hard to sit down and share what’s going on.  I am currently in Pittsburgh, PA.  Through circumstances that were nothing short of divine, I find myself here with a team of 6 other girls.  Everything about this trip has been undeniable the Lord.  He has provided housing and so much more.  We will be here for 3 weeks.  We will go back to DC to join up the rest of the team for the for the final days before the election.  We feel that this is a pivotal city in the election, and are praying for the Lord’s will in this place!
