Winnie, TX- road trip 2014

road trip 2014 343

While in Boerne, Texas, we agreed that we needed a time of rest. We cried out to God asking Him for money for us to be able to take a couple of days of rest in a hotel all by ourselves. The following day was Sunday and we attended church with our friends and ministered to the brethren that afternoon. By the time we left that church, we had more than the money we had asked God for. Different people had walked up to us handing us money saying God had told them to do so! We cancelled our next appointment and then drove past Houston into a small town called Winnie. We drove around checking out different hotels trying to find one that would best suit us yet be economical. After a half hour of this driving around, the Lord spoke to us and said, “why are you driving around and around? Take that Hampton Inn that you like. Do you not serve me? Take that hotel and I will pay for it.” So, we obeyed and went to check in. The money God had given to us the day prior was enough to pay for our rooms for a couple of days and also buy food, but still we thought it was too much money to spend on a few days. But upon God’s request, we obeyed.

The next day, our children and the nanny went downstairs for breakfast. When they finished, Pitana and I also went on our breakfast date (all included in the hotel pricing). When we got up to leave and return to our room, an older couple that were there began to talk to us admiring the baby who was with us. We stopped and talked for some time and found out that they were also Christians. We called our children to come and meet them and enjoyed getting to know each other. We then went on with our day, to have time alone as a family. Sarah, our nanny, was going downstairs to have her own time alone, when she saw the couple we had met earlier. They were at the front desk. When they saw her, they told her that they were trying to pay for our hotel room but didn’t know which name it was under. So, she helped them and our hotel bill was paid for! On top of that they handed her a brand new digital camera for us with a new memory card and batteries! They said that they had noticed that we had taped our camera and thought we could use a new one! Praise be to God! He indeed paid for the hotel as He had spoken and we had a very good rest and enjoyed our time alone as a family. How refreshing!

Our nanny’s testimony

Hello everyone! I’m Sarah the Mutanas nanny and I would love share a bit about my time with them over the last six months (As I write this I’m home for a visit with my family over the Christmas holiday.) When Mama Jeremiah(this is the name I call her) contacted me in June to ask if I would consider being their nanny I wasn’t sure what to say. Of course the first thing I did was to pray and it wasn’t long before God gave me the answer and the peace to say, “Yes!”  I totally knew the answer was from God because what else would cause me to travel across the country(I’m from Georgia)to serve a family I had only spent a week with. I met the Mutanas while volunteering for Above Rubies last year. Never mind that the job is volunteer and that I had just enough money to buy a one way plan ticket to Seattle and a passport  to get into Canada! However, I can honestly say that this has been such an exciting and spiritually growing time for me. Not only did God generously provide for me before I left to join the Mutanas in Washington; He did so throughout my time with them. God placed on other’s heart to give and bless me, some of those people I had only met once!
938
God has not only shown His love for me through providing my needs but He has, like He says in His Word, given me the desires of my heart. Psalms 37:4 Since I was little I’ve wanted to fly on a plane, see the Pacific ocean, travel outside of the U.S., see the sunset on the West coast, and travel to all 50 states. Well God has already checked off the first four on that list and He made sure to check off as many states as He could on the road trip. From the green, pine covered mountains of Washington to the vivid red mountains in Utah I have been blessed to see the beautiful and diverse landscape that God has created here in the U.S. From sledding down the giant dunes of White Sands, New Mexico to a riverboat tour of San Antonio, Texas, I have been blessed to experience unforgettable things. All that being said that is just icing on the cake or as I like to say, “the cherry on top blessings” to the even bigger blessing of my faith being stretched and increased. Sometimes that faith building and stretching has come through attending an all night pray meeting or fasting for the first time. Sometimes it has come through sharing a two bedroom/one bathroom home with seven other people or a few sleepless nights due to the very close neighbor’s loud conversations…no joke! Yes sometimes it was stressful and overwhelming to be a nanny to four children(five counting my occasional job of rocking the baby to sleep.) Sometimes it was hard not knowing what one day from the next would hold. Living with a missionary family that totally relies on God for direction from day to day can be very interesting! Through it all though, Jesus has proved Himself according to His Word that He, “would never leave me, nor forsake me.” Hebrews 13:5
I should also mention that this is the first time I have been a nanny and that I am also the youngest of four children. Being around children, as much as I have been these past six months, is actually a first for me. That, in itself, is another blessing of God. One of my desires is to, one day, be a wife and mother and through this I have learned so much about caring for children. I refer to my time with the Mutanas as my “crash course in mommy training”.  I’ve been blessed to have a “little taste” of what my future might look like. Home schooling the children, cooking for a large family, and so many other tasks that I have done since serving the Mutanas have been new and challenging experiences for me!
To sum up this testimony I just want to say that God is good, so incredibly good! He has given me so much joy, peace, and yes patience through my time with the Mutanas! He has blessed me beyond anything I could have ever imagined! And yes, He has given me a desire to continue serving the Mutanas, through the ups and downs, through the many travels(which I’m pretty sure are ahead), and through all of the fun adventures that are to come!
Blessings in Christ,
Sarah

Boerne, TX- road trip 2014

DSCN0307

From Alpine, Texas, we drove to Boerne, TX. We met and were hosted by a wonderful family. Boerne is 45 minutes drive to San Antonio, so we spent a full day exploring the beautiful city of San Antonio. Our hosts were so kind to show us around for the whole day! God bless them. We visited the famous Alamo and got educated on American history. We had a picnic lunch right outside the Alamo- literary in the middle of the city. We then went to the famous river walk and enjoyed a spectacular boat ride! This is one of our favorite thing we have done on this trip! We finished it off with a walk around the city. What a good time we had. Our children still talk about it!

On the Sunday, we joined our friends in worship at their church. In the middle of worship, Pitana felt somebody tapping him and when he turned around, he was asked to share whatever the Holy Spirit put on his heart. Since this was not previously planned, he was given 5 minutes after the preacher preached. Here is a video of his exhortation:
