Living in Transition
Its been an interesting last few months as we have lived in the netherworld of going. Its a weird place of leaving but not having left yet. Its a balance of living in the moment and looking forward to what will be, of living in houses that aren't yours yet trying to feel at home, of excitement to see what God will do and yet trying not to hope for too much. Its funny that at times we have been so focused on support raising that we forget that we are even leaving, but this last Friday we purchased one way tickets to Lithuania. It is becoming more real as we are getting ready to leave on September 17th. God is transitioning our hearts from here to there, from raising support to making disciples. We are excited and scared to leave. We know it is where God wants us right now but that doesn't mean its not tough to leave family & friends that love us and have poured into our lives in so many ways. We will go, and it will be life changing not only for the Lithuanians we meet, but also for Sharon and me, and for those that send us.
