Subject: Prayer Answered

I realize that the Lord is committed to us, as his children, and working out the details in our lives. It's not a stretch to say that few of us give all the credit where credit is due, and I am certainly not an exception.

Last week I had two prayer requests with our local pastor. We prayed about Hannah getting into the program that would help her the most, and be content with the decision. We also prayed that John would be accepted to University of Texas at Austin, where he applied a couple months ago. UT-Austin has become far more selective, elite, than when they accepted the likes of me, 30 years ago.

Last week Hannah made plans to extend her stay in China, in Harbin. It is the program she wanted to begin with. It is intense study in Mandarin and she must pledge not to speak English for the entire semester. Prayer number one, answered.

Yesterday morning our pastor, a friend and I prayed explicitly for John, and UT. Yesterday afternoon, he got an email stating that he was accepted at UT-Austin. Prayer two, check. John is transferring from Austin Community College, just as Hannah did. He will be a junior when he starts at UT in January. His major is biochemistry with a pre-med focus. He wants to be a doctor, in Honduras.

God is good, and he gives perfect gifts.
