2019 will go down in our story as a very significant and defining year.
As my family and I encouraged our hearts to journey on after the loss of a dearly loved one; the question we had before God was; what is the assignment ahead? The pause to mourn and hear God came at the end of an intense establishment season. LIA had just finished the season of focused and intentional tasks that had stretched for 20 months. The goal was to build the capacity of the LIA entities across the nations and upgrade the systems of ministry operations.
As we lifted our gaze, suddenly; the assignment became as clear as day. I realized what was laid down after 24 years of ministry was but just the establishment of a foundation that the Lord will now build on. As this dawned on me, the established pieces of the foundation and the blueprint of what the Lord wants to build on it ignited us with hope and even joy for the next season, diminishing every sense of loss.
