Have you ever had high hopes for something you really wanted? As church planters, my husband and I hoped that many people would come to Christ right away and that our house church would grow quickly. Instead, we sat in our living room with our team mates week after week wondering if the doorbell would ring. It almost never did. We wondered what on earth God was up to and if we were out of our minds.
We prayed and hoped for a breakthrough, and we rejoiced when it came.
