As I sit down to write this newsletter, it’s hard to believe that my flight to the United States takes off in less than a month. So much to think about!
Easter Sunday in Kikongo was loud…more than normal loud. Whistles blew and horns blasted, people yelled out cheers, children went up and down the isles of the church and crowded the windows and doorways.
During the time before our Easter celebration, my thoughts focus on the promise God has given us so we can walk in newness of life – and reflecting on those words reminds me of some experiences in my recent trip to Nepal.
It was a long journey returning to the Congo from the U.S. After 9 months of almost constant travel, it felt so good to arrive back to our own little apartment and unpack our suitcases! We’re happy to be settled, and as Michael said, “to be able to do the work instead of just talking about it for so long.”
“Do what you can, with what you’ve got, in the moment you’re given.”
