It is hard to believe that in a little more than 2 weeks we will be returning back to the US for the foreseeable future. On one hand I am excited and on the other hand I am sad.
Last night was the Titchie Talent Night and I was reminded why I will miss this place. We so many of our kids perform using the gifts that God has given them. We have so much talent that will continue to grow and mature and be used to praise our Lord. The hearts of the kids was genuine and a blessing to many of us. Our 4th grade kids did a play based on Little Red Riding Hood, but Little Red Riding Hood rewrote her play before she was eaten and then thought about the other stories out there that needed to be rewritten. In the end she found out the problem with rewriting things and sent them back to their normal endings, but it was a good reminder that God has a plan for everyone of us. We may want to rewrite what He has planned for us, but His plan is better for us than our plan. We do not see the consequences of our plan until the end and than it is too late. If we stick with His plan than we will be ok. There may be some bumps in the road along the road still gets us to where we need to go and that is Heaven.
These past 2 weeks have been quite busy with packing, getting projects done and starting new projects. We are getting a lot of packing done. We have 8 pieces of luggage packed, weighed and ready to go. We keep finding things that need to come back with us, but we still have 7 pieces of luggage to pack. The hardest thing is to pack up your things, but still keep living at the same time. I am getting a bunch of old projects done, but also starting some new ones that will keep going once I leave. Grateful that we have some national staff who understand what we are doing and will be able to keep things going.
