He filled us with courage and faith and He gave us eyes to see what is unseen
Adam joined us and we soon moved from that bungalow to the foothills of the Himalayas in the state of Uttarakhand.
From Delhi rooftops to Assam tea plantations; from Himalayan foothills to Himalayan mountain towns…with trips across the sea scattered in between…this has been a full 8 years.
Adventurers like me… enjoy needing courage.
I like being given nearly impossible missions that leave me exhausted and spent.
Not only does it feel good, but it fulfills dreams and desires.
We pack up this tent we have been entrusted with and march in a direction we never imagined, on this earth.
We are ecstatic to be near family and friends who have been so far for many years.
But we still ache as we march.
So as we march onwards and leave India…
We keep our gaze heavenwards.
We cry a bit, but mostly we dance…because He has done great things for us, and we are FILLED with joy!
We will love, laugh, and grow alongside family and friends, both old and new, in our new home.
We will awkwardly stumble as we learn our way in a new city.
We figure out buying cars and renting houses as a family of 5 in the US of A.
We try to balance the wife working/husband in seminary life…
And though the streets will be clean and the grocery aisles always stocked, we will not be blind.
We will not say that only India is aching.
We will pray for eyes to see eternally and we will love like crazy right where we are.
We will praise Jesus for a nation that values children with disabilities and we will thank each therapist along the way that helps us know how to help Adam.
We will celebrate life with dear relatives and friends.
And we will watch these 3 little men love and learn along the way.
We hope you will continue to be a part of our journey;)
