I wrote that title thinking it might be the most appropriate words for what we are doing at this point. John is getting the trailer all fixed up. Get this, we needed parts of the trailer welded and as John was painting it he looked up, and across the street was a welding truck. He asked the guy if he could come over and weld our trailer, and he did! At less than half the price! Talk about God’s provision. Stanley “the guide” is flying in on the 17th and he and John will be leaving on the 18th. I gave away the last of my shoes **boo-hoo**. I only have one pair of high-heals left. I mostly kept them as a remembrance of things past and the fact that they are my favorite pair :-).
Right now I can feel my heart processing a wealth of emotions. I “well” up a lot lately just thinking about things. I know God is beside me comforting me. Fears and anxieties spring up, I know this is “normal” for a missionary lady but it’s a lot to process at the same time I’m preparing to move to a different country. Two weeks ago, if you told me that we were going to be leaving on the 10th of February I would have said “That’s too late!” now I’m leaving on the 11th and my heart is crying “That’s too soon!”. Again, feelings that are said to be “normal” for me to have right now. Some of the fears that I have are not rational, and I know that. I am glad to have a loving Father who allows me to process this stuff and trust Him to make it work out. I know He will.
We are overwhelmed with everything that has transpired in the last week. Please pray for God’s wisdom and strength as the next 11 days zoom by for us.
