Moving in and of itself is an adventure, whether moving across country or across the street. Well, moving across the world is no different. The first month was filled with excitement as we settled into our new house. Our house with a yard where my kids discovered coconuts, chickens,and geckos. We explored, everything, and everyday was an adventure. Then came the second month!
On one day that was very hard, I went to my room and was literally crying out to God, I opened my Bible and this is the verse my eyes saw first. Psalm 61:2 "From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I." I thought, "well, you don't get much further than Guam, and I am overwhelmed, and yet my Rock is higher than me." I am so glad my Bible is alive and my God knows how to comfort me in my times of tears and heartaches.
I take it day by day, moment by moment, know that my Heavenly Father is already is there with me and is already in my next moment. That gives me a great peace!
So what do you get for spending your time reading my thoughts, maybe a new understanding or a reminder of how to pray for your missionaries. Pray for their families adjustments, and for their hearts when they do experience homesickness.!
