On July 4th, our Ministers gathered around Sara because she was faced with (but more of that later). Not even a month ago, we got the news that Poppy would no longer be working for RMI and said our goodbyes. 👋
Although both of these were unexpected, we are confident that when ministers leave, it was because most of us are passing through RMI For a REASON and For a SEASON
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven..."
"Complete your work outside, and get your fields ready for next season; after that’s done, build your house."
What's beautiful is hearing where Sara's Husband has called her—another ministry.
Sara said, He has called me to a ministry group that shares the gospel and helps people's spiritual growth. The need in this country is huge.
Stepping into this new role is not easy. I am losing my house and need to move to another city. I will probably need to let go of my belongings as well and raise support to be able to live and do God's work. But none of this is unfamiliar to you because you have done it over and over, trusting Him even when you didn't know where He was taking you. Your testimonies were small seeds that He was sowing in my heart.
It has been a while since I felt He was calling me to something new. However, my love for the ministry didn't allow me to see what He showed me. It's a mix of excitement and difficulty in letting go.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to continue with the Ministry since there is a lot of work to be done in the field. I hope you forgive me for not sharing this earlier, but I needed time alone with Him and the courage to follow His will for my life."
YES, we are thankful Sara had the courage to follow His lead—taking what she learned here along with our love! In the emails we exchanged, Sara will be helping our transition, as I replied, "Could you help all the ministers who will be taking over your tasks? Oh, Sara, it was so beautiful watching how everyone quickly volunteered to help when they knew you needed help. The problem is—we’re concerned that we may have missed one or more of your many tasks. So if you could gather a list with links (and if there’s any instruction you could leave), that would be absolutely fantastic!!
And then Sara replied, "I will love to help with the transition and will be available to help those who will be taking over my tasks. I am confident that He will show us the best way!"
