God's Beautiful Provision

Dearest friends! Thank you so much for your prayers! I'm excited to say that God is providing so beautifully! I'm often awed at the way He does it too. So far, more than 30 people have signed up to be part of the prayer team! That is more than half of what i hoped for! I'm hoping for at least 50 prayer warrior teams! Would you continue to pray for prayer warriors? :-) Answers to Prayer! People have stepped forward with watches, tape measures, and scrubs. God is making sure that I'll be a styling, timely, measuring midwife!!! I also got a brand new shiny Stethoscope! I had forgotten to mention it in my last newsletter. But God didn't forget! He covers ALL things! Also, the Fetal Doppler you all prayed for has been purchased! Normally they are over $500 dollars but God provided one (slightly used) for only $150.00! He is so good! I figured out how to put a picture on the blog... as you can all see for yourself! This is no small thing!!! I fiddled with this thing for weeks before i got it on here... hopefully more pictures will be coming... I was able to go get an annual check up with a doctor. She gave me a clean bill of health. I'm going through the application process with a missionary facilitating organization called Shepherd's Staff! They help missionaries stay on track of their finances, keeping accounts and accountability. I'm so glad to have their support!!!!! Current Needs! Pray that my application with Shepherd's Staff goes well. I need to put together Prayer Cards. I still need a feteoscope, thermometers and Suitcases. My Cats still need homes... but I'm toying with the idea of letting my Dad adopt them. :-) He doesn't know this yet... he he he! My car didn't sell after all. So pray that I'm able to sell my car. Last but not least is "What to do with July of 2008?" I normally don't plan my vacations a year in advance but this one will need a little extra time. You see, i only have one month off in the two years I'll be in the Philippines. I won't be coming back to the states since it takes three days to get there and at least four lay-overs! I will have to leave the Philippines for visa reasons. So where to go? I would really like to be involved in some kind of missions work. This will take some forethought, planning and prayer! That's where you all come in. Would you pray for some direction and guidance. And if you have any suggestions by all means.....!!!!! Lovingly in Him, Stephanie
