Well, I am basically packed for my trip to Taiwan. I work all day tomorrow, then we travel 4 hours away on Saturday for Mike's sister's wedding. We spend the night and return Sunday afternoon. That will be my last night with my family for 17 days.
It dawned on me this morning that in my almost 23 years of marriage, I have never been apart from Mike that long!! That sparked a little bit of fear...but i quickly handed that to the Lord.
I have known all along the Lord wanted me on this trip...but I have no idea why!!! My gifts and abilities are with adult women...this is with 1st-5th graders! This is in Asian culture...with giant, crowded cities...I prefer African, laid back culture. I prefer to be with my husband, and this is without him. I hate to fly (even to Malawi my trip is in three flights: 8 hours, 9 hours, and 3 hours)...this one is 4 hour flight to LA, then 14 hours directly to Taipei!!! I believe there is a reason I am going...so part of my 'mission' is to watch closely and see what God teaches me.
So, I ask for your prayers: prayer that God is glorified in all we do. And that I will see and learn what the Lord has to teach me. And as my last blog explained...that I obey all that I learn.
