Advent: Day 19

Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I am with you;
when you pass through the streams, they will not overwhelm you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned;
the flames will not harm you.

On our way to Shakawe in August, we drove through a bush fire. Yes, I said through. I have video footage of the event. We didn't realize how close it was to the highway that we were driving on until we suddenly found that it was on both sides of the road, on either side of us. All we could do was keep driving–fast. Also, I sent text messages to the other LBT people in southern Africa so they could be praying for us as we passed through. Thanks to the occasionally spotty cellphone reception in the bush, we were receiving text-messaged words of encouragement and assurance of prayers from the LBT family for most of the rest of the day's trip to Ghanzi.

How has God used your family in Christ to encourage you when you have found yourself walking through the fire?
