God's Perfect Timing
Jonny and Gemma Forsythe are from Leeds, England. They and their two children (Matthew and Susannah) are going to serve with One Mission Society in Mexico for three years after they attend language school in Costa Rica for a year to learn Spanish.
Jonny and Gemma participated on a mission trip to Mexico in the past for a holiday Bible study and fell in love with the people of Mexico.
Jonny felt God calling them back to Mexico, but Gemma was hesitant. Yet, any time she heard a song or read a book she felt like these things reiterated “Mexico, Mexico, Mexico!” When Gemma told this to her friend, her friend said, “Well, have you said yes?” Gemma jokingly replied, “No, because that means we’ll have to go to Mexico.”
When Gemma told Jonny, he said, “I don’t know if it’s the right timing.” Yet, Jonny and Gemma laughed and agreed that God had perfect timing of when He would lead them. Gemma stated that the verse they cling to is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
God led a clear straight path to Mexico, even though there were several twists and turns for Jonny and Gemma. God’s way is always pure and right.
