1. In case you didn't catch it it the last post I finally decided on a name for this business: His Imbaraga (2 Cor 12:9) Imbaraga means power in Kinyarwanda. And in case I haven't already made it obvious, this is all God's doing. He is using my weaknesses so that His power may be known.
2. We haven't even been running a week and have already started making wallets! Now, they are rough, but still, I'm impressed and very proud.
3. I have received two donation this week. Both donations came out to the exact amount we needed to buy our fourth machine yesterday. You guys, God is awesome.
4. I have been thinking and praying about what our cause should be and am feeling led to feed the homeless/beggars/poor in Rwanda. I'm still not sure how that will look but I'm excited to start figuring it out.
5. We start our mornings with prayer and scripture and end our days in prayer. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this.
*This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth. This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. 1 John 3:16-24*
