How Faith Changed our Life

How Faith Changed our Life

In 2012, the Lord said, “downsize.” I shared the word of the Lord with my husband and we did our best to avoid major purchases.  We shopped RV showrooms in anticipation of purchasing a motor home to live in.  Our ministries were already completely mobile.  We were just waiting on God’s timing.  In preparation, I had posted photos of an RV on my vision board; wrote the vision in detail about how we were going to use this vehicle for ministry and told friends about our Mobile Media Missionary plan.  We also sought the Lord continuously together concerning our future.

God did the impossible for us five years later when we looked out our front window one day and saw a 36 foot, Class A, motor home sitting outside our apartment.  It belonged to a friend, and he was willing to sell it to us at a discount.  He even took payments.  We named our RV, Glory to Glory.

Franklin and Arletia Mayfield on their 3rd Annual Marriage Vision Retreat 2016, where they seek God for direction and His vision for their family, marriage, ministry and work.

These are the scripture that assured us during the time of waiting and preparation.

I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.  Habakkuk 2:1-3 kjv

 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  Isaiah 55:11 kjv

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Jeremiah 29:11 kjv

It took five years for the vision to manifest, but God’s timing is perfect, and because we shared the vision with friends, they celebrated God’s faithfulness with us.  Our testimony proves that you can hear God and when you obey his voice, he will fulfill your dreams.   Our ultimate desire is to live for Him. His Word promises that if we delight ourselves in him, He will give us the desires of our heart.  We are living our dream on purpose with the Lord leading the way.

We document our missions work at MayfieldMissions.Media web site as well as Instagram, Facebook and Youtube.

This is offered as a testimony to encourage you not to give up on YOUR dream.
If you don’t have a dream, ask God to show you what your purpose is.  Pray.  Seek Him.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him. For he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  Hebrews 11:6

Be Encouraged!  Keep the Faith!  Do the work!  Pray, Watch, Obey!
