Pack your bags!

Well, I'm headed to Colombia in July! No, not for good...yet. I'm going back for a visit to meet the team that I will be working with once I live there. I'll be gone for 9 days total and will get back only 3 weeks before I'm supposed to officially leave for good. Not only is this trip going to serve as an introduction to the UCU team down there, but I'm very excited to be refreshed there by God's promises in my life.
I was talking to dad the other night and was remembering the story of my last trip to Colombia in summer '06. A few days before I left I had a very intimate time with the Lord. I felt that I would be back to Colombia but that the Lord had a lot to do within my life first. I kept feeling a time frame of about one year. I could never have guessed what all would take place in that year. It has been filled with ups and downs. Mostly, it has been God breaking and rebuilding me in a way that I know will allow my time in South America to flourish. But the breaking of oneself, in any situation, is painful. I do recognize the necesity and privilage of this process and I am seeing changes within myself daily. It is a journey. It certainly will not just end the moment I move down there. Of course not! But I am looking forward, with great excitement, to this new season in my life!
More later!
Blessings to you all,
