I just wanted to say thank you. It’s been quite a month with Restless and IF:Gathering launching and as you can imagine when you do anything important resistance is sure to come. And it has in various forms- but just as I get discouraged one of you will post something or tell me you are praying for us and it pulls us back. You are in so many ways fellow kindred runners.
I barely go a few hours without talking to one of our leadership team. We have become the dearest of friends not the kind built over coffee and giggles (although there has been a lot of that. Lots of that.) But this is more the type of sisterhood forged over tears and fear and faith and hopes that seem too big to be real. We all held barely a mustard seed of faith… and now it’s growing into more of a force. Because behind all of the pretty things we have seen God move. We are braver and bolder because of him.
Your stories have joined ours and we are in this together for God’s glory in our time.
I remember writing these words- years ago. IF didn’t have a name yet- it was just a hint of something. I knew God was stirring and yet I couldn’t quite tell what it would be. I just knew I was afraid and I wanted more and I was learning that I wasn’t alone.
