This post is gonna be a little summary, because I started my 6th month in Mozambique.
In the meantime I was in South Africa, where I went to renew my visa, and I decided to rest a few days in Iris Global base – Michael Children Village – nearby White River. I am very grateful to God for the time that I could spend in Polish company! Sylwia, Michał and their little Nelka (www.rainbowtruck.pl) and Pola and Dominika (www.facebook.com/DominikaSiyabonga) were my little Poland in South Africa. I did not realize how much I miss conversations in native language, lard and low-salt cucumbers!
This time in South Africa was also my standing in the place of helplessness. Helplessness to the size of God’s plans and impossible associated with that. And when I settled down a little bit, I built a little bit of a stable small Pembian world, God calls me to a new one. I will share about that soon, but already I am asking you for prayers. To believe with me again in my impossible.
One morning I came to God with a thousand things to pray. I could not even name everything, it’s as many as never before. And after a while, my helplessness simplified my prayer: Lord, do something about all of that. And yet, the impression stayed that His plan would not happen when I did not put my words correctly into a prayer. However, I could not say anything more. An hour later, I received the message: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.” Zech. 4:6 One sentence at the right time, without asking for prayer, disarmed my attitude and brought freedom. I tried to embrace God’s plan again. It is easier to trust.
Below is a link to a short film in which I tell how my first months in Mozambique have passed. Yes, a film!
