A New Day! Heaven's last day in TX

I'm so glad that I get to share what God is doing in Heaven. I never cease to be amazed! She called me late last night to let me know that she is doing so much better. She has water! Praise God! She has a towel! Praise God! The Lord has provided her with absolutely everything she was in need of including an electrical outlet under a water fountain, so even her cell phone is charged! (She won't be able to use it in South Africa though.)

It was just so good to hear the joy in her voice. She shared with me that there were four people chosen to go to Zulu to teach and that she and a new friend that she had just made were two of the four! This is the first time ever that those going on a missions trip to South Africa were split and allowed to go to Zulu. Usually you have to choose Zulu to go there so this was a rare assignment.

I began reading about the people of Zulu and their customs and discovered a very special thing. Zulu means Heaven. What a Godcidence that is! Another great thing is that she believes she'll be teaching English and they will be able to incorporate the gospel into the lessons. This was an extremely important detail not only because she'll be sharing the most precious news in the world, the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but Heaven had decided only a few weeks ago to go to college to teach English to Highschool students while minoring in Intercultural Studies. This was just another sweet way of God letting her know she is on the right track!

Heaven told me, she said, "Mom, never ask God to break you unless you are truly ready to be broken." She said she had been a little numb before leaving for her trip and she felt emotionless but the Lord had reached deep within her and opened her up. She surrendered these raw emotions to Him and He is working mightily in her. She told me that she is having to depend on God for everything. And I mean every little thing. She had to pray and ask for water, she has to pray to use the bathroom. She depends on Him for every detail which is exactly the way He wants it! What a glorious place to be with the Father!! Praise You Jesus! Oh Hallelujah!!

We are praying for God to prepare the hearts of these people to receive Him! There are going to be mighty healings! I am excited to be able to share with you all! Sadly once Heaven arrives in South Africa we will have very little contact with her but I will share as I can. They leave at 1:00 am tonight!

I just want to thank God and praise Him for answering even the tiniest of our prayers. The thing that stands out to me the most is that He answered each and every one! He went above and beyond as He always does! And I want to thank all of you for your prayers. Know they are answered!

Thanks for sharing all this with us. It is exactly where God wants ALL of us.....totally and completely dependent on Him. That is a hard place for us to get because we are all so INdependent...and usually very proud of it :o(

Praise God for His confirmation to Heaven!!!

Hi,
My name is Sarah. I was reading your post about Heaven in TX. And I think that what she is going to be doing is amazing. I am 18 years old and have been on three mission trips with GE and I know so passionatly that I am to go into missions that I am going to their Honor Academy in one month for the year long discipleship program. Let me tell you, missions is powerful to a young person. my first mission trip was when I was 14, and I will never forget the look people gave me when they found out the Truth in life. Please keep me informed of her progress whenever you hear some news. I think this is amazing, and I will keep her in my prayers!

This already has God's fingerprints all over this. Heaven is a wonderful young woman of God. I'm thankful to know she is willing to give her all for his greater purposes. WOW! The Zulu name was amazing.

Keep us posted. And rest in His provision. God is moving! I love it!

Good to hear from you. I've been scarce too.

God bless you and yours,
Tiffany
