KENYA 2014–Andy 01-26-14
This week has been yet another great experience. I've really learned a good bit about trust and understanding I donâ€™t make things happen but God does. Thatâ€™s my main takeaway.
To expand on that to the fullest extent would be hard to contain in a single post, but thereâ€™s one story of Godâ€™s work that I will share. I had heard from a couple of people that one of the office workers from Nairobi was an excellent singer and should sing a song in the worship time. Now Iâ€™ve never heard this person sing, so I was at least leery of the prospect, but she came up and asked and I worked out a spot for her just before the speaker. No big deal, right?
She told me the name of the song- I Surrender. I wasnâ€™t familiar with it and told her she would either have to sing a capella or find someone to provide accompaniment. I was still reluctant to give up “MY” stage to someone I had no clue about, but I keep hearing trust in the back of my mind.
Within just a couple of minutes the speaker here at the conference asked me if I could do a song at the end of his message that morning. He really wanted something strongly on the theme of surrender. I was blown away. I told him I had nothing but I knew someone who did. I explained this to the singer and she was blown away as well- no one outside of me had any knowledge of what she was singing prior to that time- no one.
Needless to say she sang beautifully and the song fit perfectly into the speakerâ€™s message and timing. Iâ€™m not always sure how God is working and what Heâ€™s up to but this time He showed me very clearly and explained that I really need to learn to trust Him.
