Perseverance

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

In Hebrews we are encouraged to ‘run with perseverance the race marked out for us.’ 

Sometimes it is hard to focus on life here while I am dreaming of Africa with every heart beat.  But I am realizing that God has me here in Aiken, SC for a reason.  I need to be open to see what He has for me.

I have settled in and feel at home now.  I can finally take my coat off while I am indoors! I have found a summer job where I used to work at a theraputic daycare.  I am getting more involved with my church again which includes working with the youth and teaching the young children. And just having fun!

Many of you know I do want to return to Africa.  That process is coming along.  I am excited to see all the pieces coming together!  I am working on looking for new partners in my ministry. 

God is good and has given me the chance to continue working with Sango.  I am helping translate some letters from the children in our orphan program.    Through this I am able to stay in touch with the children and help the sponsors connect with their children.
