6 Month Anniversary

May 10, 2008

Things have been so crazy this week with recovery and trying to get as much as I can prepared for Heather while she is teaching for me, that I nearly forgot…Heather and I have officially been here 6 months. Heather reminded me on Wednesday that we had left America 6 months ago that day…it has taken me until now to actually write something up and get it out. Wow…where has the time gone?

My first 6 months in South Africa have definitely been challenging both physically and mentally, but spiritually, I think I have grown a lot. In my 6 months I have certainly heard the question many times from people back home, “aren’t you ready to just come home?” Well the answer to that question is simple, NO! While things have not been easy, I know that God has directed me over here for this time and He is using all of the hardships, along with the fun times, to shape me more into HIS image every day.

Have I missed my family and friends over the last 6 months? Of course, but technology is wonderful and I have had many opportunities to both talk with and SEE some of my family and closest friends via telephone and internet, what a blessing! I am also anxiously awaiting the passing of the next six weeks as on June 18, my dear friends, the Lehe family, will be visiting South Africa for 2 full weeks!

6 months have gone by; in some ways time has flown and in others I feel like I have been here forever. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement over this time. I can’t believe my commitment is 1/4 of the way over! I covet your prayers over the next 18 months as I seek what God would have for me. He knows the plans He has for me and He will direct my path!

Happy 6 Months!
