There. That's the truth.
In 72 hours, my family will be boarding a plane for a 14-hour ride (across a large ocean) plus another 5 hour jaunt, and we will settle into a two month adventure that will be, to say the least, challenging and unfamiliar. I've had to come to a place of acceptance with a lot of my concerns (I'm still not sure I'm really there). I've had to question, re-question, and evaluate my motives for going. I've had to reassure myself that my prayers are to my BIG GOD who, as CS Lewis best says it, "Not to what I think thou art, but to what thou knowest thyself to be."
God gave us this opportunity a few months ago. He propelled the emails, paperwork, funding....really....He designed 5 years ago for my husband to shift from real estate to ministry to teaching so that we could be in this moment right now (both of us with two months off, ready to go as a family.) He had this from the start.
(So why do I worry?....ugh.)
All that to say, if you'd like to follow along on this journey of ours, please be on the lookout for my updated blogs. I will be blogging, photogging, whatnogging....from across the world. Please stay in prayer not only for our trip (general health, safety, etc.), but for the Sixty Feet team already on ground, and the many others who will be traveling to minister internationally this summer. It takes a lot of guts to give up the familiar, even for a little while.
