    I went on a short-term mission trip to Monterrey Mexico 3-4 years ago. We stopped in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico to do the ‘customs’ thing to register our vehincles. We had two vans and two trailers full of supplies. Our team leaders went into the office while we took a ‘necessary’ break and guarded the vehicles. After a short while, one of the ‘paperwork crew’ came out to tell us that they were having trouble with the papers that we had brought with us to document the ownership of the vehicles. We had duplicate papers for one of the trailers and nothing for the other trailer. They were asking us to pray for delivery from this dilemma. If the Mexicans proved to be sticklers, it would have meant a long delay to get the properly notarized titles, etc. overnighted to our hotel in Laredo, Texas. That would have thrown the entire program off by a full day. We huddled-up and joined hands in a Prayer Chain around one of the vans. What was our prayer? We prayed that the Lord would confound our enemies and let us through without delay. In ten minutes we received word that one of the clerks had and attack of ‘ego’ and had acted unilaterally by validating both sets of paperwork for the trailers as though they had been correct. Off we went to Monterrey. It was one of the most successful mission trips I had ever been on.

    So hard to commit ourselves completely into His Hands–knowing it my head is one thing but acting and re-acting like it is something else. A very important goal today. thanks

    He is always pleased when we humble ourselves and put all our trust in Him as we cry our petition out to Him. Only in our weakness are we strenghtened. Can we (I) see through that filter in our heart when the threat is the largest before us? “Set your minds on things that are above…” Colossians 3:2 ESV
