We’re back at 0ur sending base after a lovely holiday season with our parents. And now we wait for the last bit of funds and our visas to come and try to see this time as an opportunity instead of a curse; an opportunity for growth, an opportunity to serve in our home country, an opportunity to spend S’s first birthday here in the states, an opportunity to see tulips and daffodils and maybe even lilacs. Regardless of where we are God will give us opportunities to glorify his name and spread his kingdom. Our job is just to look for them, to be open to his lead, and to not grow bitter. If we view this time as a curse I’m sure we’ll grow stagnant and miss the little gifts God wants to give us here during this season. If we work our spiritual muscles though and listen for his calling here we’ll be stronger and ready for the field when it is our time to go.
Please pray that we will see the little blessings everyday instead of focusing on the wait.
Pray that we will grow and trust God more each day.
And of course pray that the details of our language school and the last of our finances will come in.
