Whenever the above picture shows itself to us in our computer I am reminded of some of the silly happiness we had in Peru. There is a constant joy of discovery when working cross-culturally. There is a happiness in knowing that you are doing something significant that will have eternal significance. I will not say that life was not hard, and we had some struggles living in Curahuasi that are not to be discounted. These struggles were full spectrum being psychological, spiritual, and physical. But there was not a time when there was not a happiness in God underneath it all. When I posted the above picture to Facebook two years ago I had no idea that we would have left Peru for good just a mere two years later. God works in our lives in ways that we cannot imagine.
And in trust we say “Take us where you want us to be to live out Ephesians 2:10 which states ‘For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago’.”
I am interested in seeing what is next while all the time trusting that we are prepared for the work ahead of us.
