There are only 72 days left before I fly home! When I sat down with my team to plan out the final 3 months, we were filled with a sense of energy and faith for our remaining time here. The days seem so limited now, and there's a feeling of urgency to make our time as effective as possible. It reminds me of Psalm 90:12, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” It makes me want to be wise with the time God has given me.
In 2007, after my first year in Asia, I made a decision to spend at least two more years working with CT. Now as I wrap up my second year here, I am looking forward with excitement to year #3! I will be home for a few months this summer before returning at the end of August to help lead next year's team.
I am continually blown away when I think of all that God is doing here. Over 120 students have joined the family in the past 7 months! About 75% of this year's CT team has decided to return next year! I know God has breathed this vision, and He is continually moving in people's hearts! It's so exciting to be a part of this movement!
A personal highlight for me is that in one week, my sister Dawn will be visiting!!! I am so excited for the chance to show her around the city that has become my second home! This is her first time overseas, so please pray for good health, and protection as she travels alone. I've already made a list of all the places I want to take her, and all the interesting food she needs to try during her week here!
I'm filled with excitement to finish this year strong! I am expecting a great harvest in these last few months, with new family members who are eager to spread the Gospel. Pray that these last ten weeks would be dynamic!
