It is such perfect timing that I am going home to Florida . I knew I would need a break for a time of rest and rejuvenation, but God knew better than I did that I would greatly need the time back home for different reasons. I need that sense of community, fellowship, and nourishment from family and friends and church. It will be an adjustment being back in an affluent western culture. I have been immersed in the Fijian culture for the past 9 months. The Fijian language will probably come out of my mouth here and there that's for sure.
I'm looking forward to so many things!
*Quality time with my parents and seestar
*Catching up with all my precious family & friends
*Girls weekend with my UCF gals - Crazy 8's
*Dining at all my fave FL eateries :)
*Sharing my experiences with supporters
*Support raising to return to Fiji for another year of missions
I know my time at home will be busy and filled with all kinds of things to do. Settling back into the US way of life, meeting up with people, and preparing myself financially, physically, and spiritually to return to Fiji. I know God is molding me for this next phase of ministry and I'm so pumped for it! My mind is always running with what needs to be planned and organized next. I will definitely cherish each moment while I am home in the US. And of course I will be missing things about Fiji and special people there who have become important in my life.
I am in such awe of how God sustains me through all things. There's an old song performed by the Crabb family that really touches my heart. The lyrics are powerful and uplifting.
"Through the Fire"
