Waiting: A Blessing in Disguise.

More often than not, when I see friends, they ask why I am not in Africa yet (rightfully so- we originally planned to leave in the beginning of October).

Yes, our departure got delayed and yes, we have our tickets – we leave November 18th. I have been learning so much in the process of transition & waiting.

God’s timing is different than ours and sometimes we don’t understand why. But what I do know is that I am incredibly thankful for the extra time in Ventura. It has been encouraging and a huge blessing having people open up their homes to us for meals, rest, and fellowship.I am thankful for the conversations, adventures, and love that I have encountered.

The longer I wait to be home in Liberia, the more excited I am to be there. Maybe the quote “good things come to those who wait,” isn’t so cliche after all.
