Because He Loves Me!

Our daughter Elisabeth just called to see if I had a bar of Fels-Naptha Soap. She uses it when she makes her homemade liquid laundry soap. I am so proud of her for doing this! It is good soap and only costs pennies a load to use but it takes planning and preparation to do this. When you need your soap, you have to have all your ingredients ready. She called to see if I had a bar…yes, I did. I have several actually. They are not easy to find so I would usually buy four or five each time. Then I also am prepared when I want to make the soap.

After I hung up from talking with her, I thought, oh, I will just give her three or four so she won’t have to run out for a while. But then I thought, no, that will not help her learn to be prepared if I make it too easy for her to just borrow from me or I supply it for her.

My learning moment: I felt like the Lord spoke those words back to my heart. HE can not make things too easy for me. HE allows difficulty so that I will grow and become more responsible…ouch. I do it for Elisabeth’s good because I love her. The Lord does this for my good because HE loves me! ♥

Linda Kropp got saved at 14.  ” I always say that I didn’t get into a lot of trouble…because my mom wouldn’t let me!”  Linda was a was a missionary from 1973-1985 in the States, Europe and Asia, 9 of those in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Her husband was in the same mission, “Christ is the Answer” and they were married in Sri Lanka in 1980.

They have one daughter, Elisabeth, a son-in-law and a 4 yr. old granddaughter and another granddaughter due in July.  They attend College Avenue Baptist Church in Bloomington where they both are Sunday School teachers.  In September of 2009, Linda was praying about a way to help missions and she felt the Lord put on her heart to open a thrift store in Clinton, IL and give 100 % of the profits to missions, crisis pregnancy centers and food pantries. So she did.  They also have a weekly Bible study; a mentoring program for homeschooled and public school students.They also have had numerous people commit their lives to Christ since they opened. It has become a ministry…and that is just the ones who have gotten saved. Many people come in daily with prayer needs and they pray for them.  They work with DOVE (a domestic violence program), the IDHS in Lincoln, and the Red Cross Disaster Relief.
