Obedience Leads to Blessing

We serve an amazing God who loves us beyond measure and wants to bless us beyond belief.  He has wonderful plans for our lives, if only we will obey.  Knowing He has such great love for us, we can trust Him with our lives because He knows all things and desires to lead us in paths of righteousness. 

We can't thank Him enough for rescuing our family from financial ruin in October of 2008 through a class called Financial Peace University.  Although we could not know what was going to happen that October, He did, and 6 months prior to that time, He lead us to get on a budget, get out of debt and save for an emergency fund. 

He not only protected us from disaster but He was also preparing us for His call to adoption.  Now we are waiting for our precious daughter Meilí and are so thankful that His hand was upon us then so that we can follow Him now as we seek to care for orphans.

We are extremely excited and completely amazed at the opportunity He has given us.  We were invited by the people at Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University to share our story of His protection in a LIVE simulcast web event that was aired last night (December 15, 2012).  We are so humbled that God allowed us to share what He has done, and we pray that many are encouraged to trust Him with their finances and with their lives.  If you would like to hear the testimony we shared last night, you can do that by clicking on the link below.  If you don't have time to watch the whole event, our testimony begins about 7.5 minutes into the program. 

God is so good and faithful to His children, and we are so thankful.  Obedience certainly leads to blessing, and we just want to keep obeying and following Him wherever He leads. 

We wish you a very Merry Christmas. 
May He grant you His peace and joy as we celebrate all He has done for us.
