Lord, Would you shorten that Road?

About six years ago I remember praying over a period of months for God to somehow get us closer to where Kay teaches up in north Greensboro.    I had no idea at the time that God was working on an answer.  Kay had to drive through the heart of Greensboro, past  UNCG and catch Bryan Blvd to go north, the trip took 45 minutes.  It was a strenuous trip with traffic, signal lights, school bus routes and homeless people lingering at stop lights.

The NC Dept of Transportation began building the Route 40/85 western bi-pass around Greensboro and it turned out it shortened Kay’s drive time to 30 minutes on much less stressful interstate highway grade roads.  It is amazing, the glory goes to God, of how He takes our prayers focusing on one dimension of the problem and solves them from a totally different perspective.

Along the same line, another interstate bi-pass has been completed around High Point and has shortened my travel time to all parts of High Point allowing me to more quickly get to the homes of various Burmese families for ministry and fellowship.
