Plowing Away

We're back in High Point...briefly...we're headed to Marion, NC on Sunday for classes.

Yesterday marked the one month mark. We are now officially less than a month away from leaving for Liberia. So many details are still coming together and we anxiously await their completion. We've watched God do so much in the last couple of months to make it possible for us to go to Liberia for this next year. We're amazed and grateful. He truly goes before us.

This leads us back to what we said the other day about selling the car. We're selling the car. We've sold/given away the majority of our "stuff". We're leaving North Carolina with 4 large suitcases and our carry ons. These are the facts.

The less known things are what God is going to do in our lives in the next year. How will this year change us? How is God trying to grow us in through this calling to missions? What difficulties and joys we will encounter in the next year? What will we do when we come back? At this point we can't answer those questions. What we do know is that God asks us to follow Him in obedience.

Jesus said to them, "No one who puts His hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God." Luke 9:62

We're putting our hand to the plow. We've been putting our hand to the plow for the last couple of months actually. We know that God is faithful to complete the good work that He has started in our hearts and minds. That is why we can sell our car and everything else and move in the direction He has called us. We move towards Christ for our good and His glory.

We realize that makes some folks uncomfortable. Jesus made folks uncomfortable. We want to be like Jesus. Thanks for your love and support dear friends. We rest in God's sovereignty and find strength in your prayers.
