It’s hard to believe that our trip to Malawi is less than a week away. I’m feeling excited and anxious at the same time. Excited to be returning to Africa and the mission field, but anxious about getting things in order for my departure. This will be the longest period of separation from my family ever. My daughter qualified for USAIG World Gymnastics championship in Orlando, Florida but she competes the same day that we leave for Malawi. So, I’m disappointed that I will miss her competition but praise God that my daughter told me, “Dad – it’s ok. You go to Africa and do the Lord’s work. You have been to all my other competitions – it’s ok, Mommy will record it.”
Proverbs 19:21 says “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” I am ready to align my plans in pursuit of God’s purpose for my life.
Time to finish packing! It’s crunch time.
