One of the single hardest parts of my travels is saying goodbye.
Goodbye isn't easy in any language, especially when strong connections have been solidified through faith. These last 11 days in the Middle East have been some of the most memorable events in the last few years. Intriguing culture, wonderful fellowship, and a lighthouse beaming in a dark world, have all added a collection of memories I'm sad to leave.
But the work must go on….
I've got 5 little ones back home and a wonderful wife who has been holding down the fort. It's time to re-engage and make sure our work with teens and college students continues going forward.
God is so good, even when we have moments where we find beauty, he allows our hearts to grow and develop a fullness for all the people in the mix.
There's much processing I'll be doing on the plane for the next 30 hours or so.
Many stories to catalog.
Many friends to thank.
Thank you all for praying for my time over here.
My heart for Muslims, the international fellowship, and another group of teenagers has grown. I feel like I understand a bit more about how it all functions, and I can't wait to tell the story.
I'll be back in full force writing next week.
See you then!
