We've got big news to share...we're staying put! We came to the decision not to move to Zambia. It has taken us a long time to sort out our thoughts and feelings about this opportunity. At first we thought our uneasiness was fear and we worked through all that but still we had no peace. With orientation coming upon us next week we talked to our elders, fasted and prayed and came to the conclusion that this is just not for us. We feel so relieved!! Of course it is hard, especially for Jaime Lyn, to let the dream die, but we know where God wants us and we're happy that it is HERE!
Thank you for walking through this with us. We have learned a lot about missions, about ourselves and about God. We laid it all on the alter and He has told us to take it back up again. This was not what we were expecting would happen, but we are not disappointed to be told to stay. I have a very clear word from God to be content and faithful to the tasks at hand, namely to love and care for my family for this season of my life. This is a high calling and it is good enough for me! And you have my permission to be happy for us!
