calling

Do you believe God puts something in our heart?

I do.

We are called to the missions field.

ANd while we have waited and are still waiting for God to tell us when... and where... I am terrified of it, and yet. I know it is what God wants us to do.

several weeks ago my husband texted me a message. one word.

UGANDA.

I dont know why.... in fact I hadn't even given this a 2nd thought until tonight when I watched a show on ABC about child sacrifice in Uganda. ANd I looked into the faces of people I don't know, and wondered could I love them like Jesus does? Could I put my own children in harms way at the possibility of even leading one to eternal life with Christ. ANd realized I honestly don't know.

That is the scariest thing ever to me, that somehow we will be called to a mission field that will not be "safe" for our family.

I wish I knew the answers.

ANd I don't know ANY of the answers.

Praying God will show us when, and where and how....

So, is it Uganda? I don't know. We are praying about taking a missions trip to another missionary family located in Mexico, The Lockwoods, this summer with our family.... praying God would lead guide and direct every step because I have absolutely no idea, all I know is that each day the draw to missions work gets stronger, and each day I feel more and more unprepared for what God will call us to do.

SHE DID IT


My 3 year old is FINALLY potty trained!

She did it in less than a week, with simply rewards of princess stickers, and m&m's and a trip to the carousel at the mall. She finally decided that being in indies and clean was so much better than being like a baby....

and the momma and the poppa and the big sissy are are thrilled!
