the story of Daja & Gana Gombojav
To a poor Mongolian pastor who made about $30 a month and a poor American girl who worked part time this seemed an insurmountable amount of money. So, we prayed. We wrote letters. And we kept our hearts warm for one another while we waited for God to do something.
When we are reading love stories, we need to focus on what God has done—not on what the people did—because our very best “rightness” is still worth nothing in the Kingdom of God. It doesn’t guarantee us a single thing. Love stories are about how God moved, even when people didn’t have any idea that He was there.
