It's a word we use a lot here. Adventura or adventure. Because I can honestly say that life is never dull. The past few months have been particularly busy with lots of changes.
The first big change is that our oldest son is graduating from high school next week! The missionary school where he has been attending ends a bit later than traditional schools in the US, but it's still hard to believe that he just has a few more days. We are so proud of him and excited as he will be starting University in the fall back in the US.
Another change is that as a family we will be spending the rest of the year in the US so we can be closer to our son as he adjusts to university and life in the states for the first time since he was six. We will also use this time to report to churches, raise some additional support, and hopefully find some time to rest before returning to Africa in January.
The last change is that the house we began building three and a half years ago is almost finished. There has been delay upon delay and more stress than we ever want to experience again, but the majority of the work will be done before we leave which means we will be able to move in!
Change and a bit of adventure is a part of a missionary's life it seems. We really do find ourselves often saying that it's just a big adventura with both the good and the frustrating. And knowing that nothing on this earth will last forever anyway, that's okay!
Be blessed today!
PS If you haven't read Dangerous Passage, book one in my award-winning Southern Crimes series, I just checked and it's still free as an ebook! And book two is only $4.99! Happy reading!
