No lefse for me?

I’m still unsure if I’ll be travelling to Sweden with MBI in January, and I’m getting rather frustrated already. I’ve been in contact with MBI for the past month, and things sounded promising. But the YWAM base that I would be connected to is not getting back to MBI regarding my request to go. It’s been two weeks since MBI contacted the base and I still haven’t heard anything from them. I don’t know what to do! Waiting sucks! I still have this “I felt God calling me to go to Sweden so it’ll all work itself out” mentality…but in the meantime, it would be really nice to know what is going on. It would be really nice to be able to hash out details. It would be really nice to be……..comfortable with this. Aye, there’s the rub: comfort. God never promised this road would be easy did He? Trust. Faith. These are required of me. Can you please pray that everything will work out eventually with this? Thanks

    I’m praying for you that it’ll work out the way God wants it to. Perhaps you are meant to go to Sweden, but maybe it’s just not at this VERY moment. Who knows, maybe you have the urge to go cause your’e supposed to go in two years or something like that. I’m not sure what God has planned, but I also know that there are always obstacles that come from every direction. The free will of the people in Sweden (whether it be from laziness or what have you) may be keeping you from going through MBI. Which might mean to try a different route. There are so many possibilities as to why you haven’t heard back yet…only time will provide the reason.

    As wonderful as youth missions programs are. . . they are one thing above all: disorganized. I wouldn’t worry about it too much, you probably have someone on the other end that is not very administrative and is quite slow. I’ve seen this in YWAM as well as YMI. We were in Jordan in Gulf Crisis of 1998 and it took our leader a month to get back to us as to whether or not we should evacuate if it came to it. 8)

    Continue to follow the leadings from the Lord that you have had to date and trust that even if things fall through, that you have done everything you can to obey him.

    Hey hon,
    Everything will work out in due time. Remember God doesn’t work on our time but His. Everything will be peachy so don’t sweat it! ;)

    Patience and flexability are two essential characteristics of being a missionary. The organizations work slower than our spirits want them too and sometimes the people on the other end work in a different time frame.(You wouldn’t think Sweden would but who knows) Be really sensitive to God’s voice and see if there is something right here and now that he wants you to do while you are waiting.
