A few months ago our Field Leadership started talking with me about joining a new team. They felt that I would be better suited there and that I would be a blessing to that team. You probably may be wondering what happened to my other team members. Well the family that I was living with are still on Home Assignment and hopefully they will be able to return in September. They have been gone for nearly a year and they have had some health issues, including two surgeries this month. Please be praying for their health. The other couple that was working in a different area will not be coming back to the country in the near future.
I have been asked recently about how I feel regarding this huge change. There are so many things- leaving the old and familiar to go into the new and unfamiliar. After investing time into learning a second foreign language, I will now be embarking on my third. I don’t feel angry with God about this change, nor do I view all this time spent here as a waste. I am grateful for all the relationships that I have built and the Christian testimony that I was able to share with my neighbors and friends. I pray that the seeds that were planted would take root and grow.
