pack? who needs to pack?? 

Hangin' in Vyf RandThe time has come once again to go back to my heart…  it’s in Namibia ya know.  Each time I go a piece of it has stayed.    It’s a place where God speaks to me the most.  A place where I’ve felt at home since the moment I set my feet on the ground.  Each time I go it’s harder and harder for me to come back.  I have family there… something I haven’t felt here in quite a long time.  I’ve been thinking so much lately about how emotional I become when I am there, and analyzing why that is…  I am beginning to understand. 

I am excited to spend time with this team and get to know those I don’t know and to be with those I already love.  I am excited to see the Morsbachs and to play with the kids.  I am excited to spend more time in Arandis and get to know the people there.  I am excited to see what God is planning on this trip and how He is going to speak to me.  Those are just a few of my thoughts… I am already dreading coming back, but I know it’s where God wants me for the time.  It will be a different, yet exciting year… with greater possibilities… and more opportunities to go back home. 

Please keep the team of 18 in your prayers… as well as our Namibian hosts and the people we will encounter along the way.  Please pray that I will not run on my own understanding and trust fully in His grace and sovereignty… that I will know when to keep my mouth shut and when to speak.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.  Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.”  ~Proverbs 3:5-7

Well, it’s not that I haven’t had anything to say or haven’t felt like posting… it’s just been such an insane past few weeks.  From computers breaking, to lightning striking and disrupting our cable/internet service, to staying up all hours of the night working on a CD project, to… well, I am going to stop there… I think you get it.

Anyway, in 6 days I will be off to Namibia again & I am SO excited!!  I can not wait to see what God has planned for this journey.  He has truly been tearing at my heart and making me wonder what the heck I am sticking around here for, but I still can’t seem to let things go enough to take the plunge… but He is working me in slowly… helping me let go of things one at a time, softening my heart to make me realize the things in life I really need.  Slowly, but surely my mom’s estate is getting settled… so, I am really excited to see what happens on this journey.  If you’d like to be a part of the adventure you can join us on the blog site
