Hello beautiful Brides!! Today is Friday and you all know that is time for the LALTour Praise Report!! Let’s begin by Praising the Lord for who He is, for His mercy, grace, and Love. Thank you beloved HH for the wonderful week you gave us. You know what we need and even if we don’t understand your plans and your will we can rest knowing that You have a purpose, and you will complete the work you started in our lives o/o/o/
We left Belgium and head to Vienna, Austria, where we stayed just one night and on the following day we to the train to Bratislava, Slovakia and finally got to meet Aimee, you can read her BIO here:)
We didn’t have the time to visit Vienna and we were all puzzled why the Lord had us book these dates to prevent us from even seeing this beautiful city. But of course, He had a plan— far better than we could have dreamed. While talking with Aimee, she shared her desire to drive us there (the distance between Vienna and Bratislava is just one hour!). She felt led by the Lord to offer to drive us, and what she didn’t know was that the Lord had also spoken with Tara—putting this our hearts— the desire to spend our day together in Vienna!!
Driving us there helped us to get to know one another. From the moment that we met her until the time we departed, we heard so many testimonies and miracles that He did in her life over the years. We shared struggles, but at all times, our hearts were full of joy, because we know that He is in control of everything. Even when we don’t understand His plans, His way and why He allowed some of the things that happen in our lives, we still Praise Him, because everything will turn to good just as it did with us “missing” Vienna only to see His plan was to spend it with Aimée!!
The drive to Vienna was full of excitement and testimonies that Aimee promised to share with us in upcoming PRs!!! We saw the hand of the Lord from the beginning of our trip. Like when the place that we parked the car was free, because it was Saturday 😉 Then how He led us to beautiful touristic points and Aimee shared with us that the last time she went to Vienna was when she was just 15 and how this was very special 🙂 She also told Tara that after going with us, she can see how she could easily manage to take her boys to visit the city. Isn’t that amazing? if you are curious please check us on Instagram, you can see the pictures of our time with the beautiful bride Aimee!!
The next day, we were invited to attend the first communion of Aimee’s oldest son in Slovakia. She’d asked if we could go to support her (since her EH would be there and also his family). Since she has no family in Slovakia, Tara and I were her family!!
We had an amazing opportunity to meet, talk and enjoy a beautiful day with her two wonderful boys 🙂 Looking at them as a family, we could see the Lord working, molding the heart of her oldest son, the love he shows towards is young brother brought tears of joy to our eyes. I know that the Lord has a plan and a purpose for both their lives. It was beautiful to see Aimee showing the ways of the Lord to them both. I praise Him always when I see that even in the middle of the storm, fire, trials—He is with us and He will make us lie down on the green pastures and restore our souls.
After the first communion and lunch with her family (Aimee’s FMIL invited us as her “family” Only God could do that), we went to a park with them to enjoy the sunny day, playing football/soccer with her oldest son, and both he and Tara showed off their talents :))) I think the last time I had fun playing football was when I was just a child, so I also enjoyed the activity. Thank You, Beloved, because you bring joy to the simplest things in life.
We left Slovakia and Aimee with confidence in Him and His ways, we are grateful for fellowshipping together during these two days. Aimee also hopes to return as a French translator when things settle down just a bit. We always need good translators, but what we hope most is just to remain close as we work with Him together.
Heading back to Austria, but now a different city, the city of Salzburg. What a beautiful place! If you’ve ever seen The Sound of Music movie, you would also enjoy visiting here and our pictures on Instagram;) Salzburg is the city where they filmed the musical in 1965, and we went to all the film locations on a BIKE tour; can you believe it?!! The Lord is so gracious in giving us the incredible opportunity to visit the city and enjoy ourselves so much!
Now, Brides, we are actually, almost, close to the ending of our LALTour and the LALTour PRs. So I pray that soon you will read PRs from more of His Brides, brides we met and the new ones coming to the Ministry, each sharing about the abundant life that they are living with Him o/o/o/
Until next Friday!
