…your blessings that is. See, because the other side of the mission field is:
…learning to be happy without lights…like at the airport just before they finish the reservation on the flight you’re booking in late for…or at the restaurant with no backup generator on your way back from the city…or – most typically – like this photo from last night.
…learning how to efficiently bath out of a bucket, b/c water isn’t guaranteed even when the bill is paid.
…but knowing better than to complain—because someone else without lights heated the water for you.
…and no matter how many challenges, having few other things that compare with beginning to hear messages well-organized enough, that you’re hearing the outline in the sermons of students who are preaching in their second and third languages. We’re not where we need to be, but please keep your prayers coming…because they are truly making the way for us to get there. #blessingsaplenty #yourprayers
So I guess that – so far – the other side of the mission field just reminds me that it’s not a field trip—but we’re still EXCEEDINGLY blessed. I already see plenty of challenges ahead. But one of the best things about being His—is being able to see even more provision! #morethanable
