God's Perfect Timing

“God’s timing is perfect” This is a phrase we like to throw out when we are struggling with patience and need reassurance. And yet this is exactly what the Word of God is supposed to do for us, give us guidance and confidence.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiates 3:1

So God’s timing is perfect. There are also a lot of times that we do not see this truth until we are looking back at a situation. When I had first told the Tylers that God was leading me to helping them in Romania, I was going to do another internship for a whole semester in the fall of 2020. We kept thinking that conditions would get better and restrictions would be lessened. But that time did not come. So I started deputation in January 2021.

Fast forward to June 2021, and I read that borders will be opening for a lot of Europe. I ended up getting to go for two and a half weeks in July. It was not the length I wanted it to be nor the time I wanted to go, but many things were confirmed during that trip. I was able to reconnect with the Tylers that I had not seen since 2017 when I visited, and I got a little taste of what my conditions would be once moved there.

While I was there, I got to assist the Tylers and a few of their church’s teens in setting up for a kid’s day camp. This would be the first event they were able to do since covid had started back in March 2020. Just being able to have this event was a blessing and an even bigger blessing was that more than half of the kids that came had never been to the church before. We were also able to continue handing out John and Romans booklets around the neighborhood.

For the last three months, deputation has continued slowly but I have now reached 38% in my support. Another neat thing about this timing going slower than expected causes me to really appreciate every "little" thing that churches and individuals will do for me, like giving an encouraging word about my presentation or sharing a prayer for my traveling.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:8-9

About Me


Thank you so much for being interested in the ministry I am involved with in Romania. Deputation was a two and a half year journey, but it was great to see how God provided in many ways. I moved to Romania in May of 2023, and I am excited to be a part of where the Lord is working!
