A Writer’s Woe: Tangle of Words But No Point

i am stuck and lost in the middle of my story. i am working on an article about the impact mothers in Child Survival Program made in their community. i scribbled out my thoughts, laid the outline and determined to follow it through. but something is wrong. i am missing something –  the point of the story. the impact.

what i want to convey is that this group of mothers, who were immature christians at first, joined the project, learned more about God’s word, got to discuss their faith openly with other moms and were passionate to start their home church within their own community. this led to the real impact. before, the community didn’t have the church, but after this group started for a year, God answered their prayer and gave them a church building through many prayers and miracles.

the reason this  church building is so important is because it is the light to the villagers, who are buddhists and animists.

the end.

it should be that simple. i have gone on for 800+ words but haven’t reached this point yet. can you see my point when i said that i’m stuck and lost in the forest of words? 😦

    Yes I can understand what you are talking about. You are so excited and passionate about what is going on there that you want to express every thought and make sure readers are getting the extent of what God is doing. Our God is so big and so glorious it overwhelms us and we babel. It sounds great and I can only imagine what it must feel like to be part of it. Praying for you Mink, You are doing great! PRAISE THE LORD!!!
