The Lord started teaching me things before we even started on our journey. Before doing fundraising, I thought that I had a pretty good handle on my stewardship of money and that I did an OK job trusting the Lord to provide for me. However, it didn’t take long for me to start worrying about whether I would be able to raise money. I guess the idea that God is my provider was in my head but not my heart. Despite me, God did provide abundantly the financial resources that I needed for this trip. In addition, I was humbled by both who supported me and the amounts that certain people gave. It was obvious that certain people gave with a joyful heart. The made me realize that I often give out of duty and obligation rather than in joy.
