I Wish You Could Know . . .
. . . how glad we are to be in Kenya. The work is meaningful. Both Allison and I feel particularly well suited for what we are doing. We find Ephesians 2:10 "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do the good works he created in advance for us to do," is very true. In fact I pray through that verse every time I walk to the hospital wondering what emergency or problem awaits me that day. It is a great promise that we rely on. However, it is not always easy. We struggle with living cross-culturally. We worry over our kids and their struggles. We pray for our relationships with them and the strain that living this life has caused them. We trust God through gritted, concerned teeth with our finances. It is really a mixed bag, and there is always the temptation, the little voice deep inside, whispering that if we went home everything would be better, as if all our worries would be over. God is good, and he carries us through our concerns and temptations, and he blesses us by allowing us to feel the goodness of what we are doing for his glory.
. . . how thankful we are for all of you who pray for us, remember us, support us financially, send us emails or post on out Facebook or Instagram accounts. It can be a bit lonely at times, and while our heart is in Kenya, it is also in the United States. We are glad to know we have friends back home! I wish COVID wasn't keeping us apart! Thank you.
