Simply Ask

I'll just go ahead and use the fact that we are now at 71% of our monthly support as the reason we haven't posted. With that being said, we've been blessed to see God work. We've gained 11 new partners and are praying for more as our campaign comes to a close soon... 

 When we were in Knoxville for a prayer conference, we had lunch one afternoon at Chick-fil-a. After receiving our yummy food, Patrick went up to the counter all by himself and asked "Can I please have some ice cream?" Jonathan, the lady at the counter, and I all laughed, and we went on our way to the play ground. About 20 minutes later, the lady came up to Patrick with a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles (I didn't know they had those at Chick-fil-a). I had Jonathan take a picture of Patrick with the ice cream he received by simply asking. It brought to mind the following Scripture: 

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
James 1:5
I love that all we have to do is ask God for wisdom that He doesn't find fault in us for lacking wisdom, but He generously gives it to us.

Recently, Jonathan and my common prayer begins with asking for wisdom. We're asking for wisdom as to how to raise Patrick, how to raise our remaining 29%, and how to prepare to work with around 120 students. Please join us in praying for wisdom in these situations.
