We know that God has us serving in Albania, working among the Albanians and Roma, living in our current neighborhood, and using the gifts and abilities that He has given us to bring glory to Himself.
If you know me at all, you know that I do not crave change. God seems to love that and keeps growing me in that area. Change. Just the word makes me cringe.
With this new transition we have lots of change. We are moving from the known: our previous organization, team life and expectations, as well as team women who know how to care for one another and celebrates holidays :). We are moving into the unknown of: new organization and how it works, a deeper widening of our friendship circles outside of our previous team, not knowing how those old friendships will continue, and leaning ever more closely on our God and my sweet hubby.
(Lord willing, we hope to celebrate winter holidays in the US with family for the first time in 9 YEARS. Yep, that's a long time.)
So when you get the email or hear about our "change is coming" news, please take a minute to pray for us in this process. Someone said it well this week, "You go from a family and known to neither. It is a process of grieving too. Allow yourselves time for that emotional adjustment." Another encourager shared, "May it (the transition) not only be smooth but also be a catalyst for more influence in ministry!"
Our God is enough. He never leaves us. Even in change. The sun sets and He makes it rise again the next morning. God is our strength.
