I’m in the US now.  {Side Sote: Peter Project needs money.  Just sayin…}

And I can’t help but think about what it will be like when I come back in November.  For good.  My heart can’t even begin to wrap itself around the idea.  I know He is calling me back here, yet I don’t want to leave these kids I love so desperately.  Sounds to me like I can’t be happy either way.  Quite a pickle I’m in.

The hardest part about being a missionary (and it’s hard) is loving people and seeing the reality that they are living in, the spiritual and earthly darkness that is their daily existence.  Oh, but there is such joy in being a vessel for Him to show them His light.  I am privileged and honored to be able to be that for my precious boys.

And I’m going to miss it.

I’m going to miss walking alongside Kelvin, Cristofer, Fernando and Moises, as they wade through the muck that tries to take hold of their lives.  I take such joy in seeing light come into their eyes as they hear about a Savior who loves them and as they continue on in the battle towards and brighter earthly and eternal future.  Don’t get me wrong.  I know and understand well that I can come to the US and “walk in the muck” with anyone who is living in that kind of darkness.  But I want to walk in THEIR muck.  I want Kelvin’s, Cristofer’s, Fernando’s and Moises’ muck.

I want to walk through and beyond that muck, into the arms of the Savior who longs for them.

Please join me in praying for our precious boys.  For their rescue, both earthly and eternal.

{Oh, and while you’re at it, some money would be good, too.}
