Hey y’all! I decided to try out this blog thing, but we’ll see how long I stick with it.. ha! I flew out to Nairobi, Kenya on April 21, 2013. In almost every way you can imagine, life has been different & challenging; from not being able to use the water out of the tap to hoping no baboons come in the car/house. But God has continually been showing me His purpose in having me over here, without my family, for this long- to truly depend on Him in every situation. It sure hasn’t been easy, but I know it’s for my good & His glory. I do have a lot to catch y’all up on since I’ve been here for 37 days and am just now starting this blog, but hopefully I can keep up with it! A piece of scripture the Lord keeps putting back in my mind is Nahum 1:7 – “The Lord is good; a stronghold in the day of trouble, He knows those who take refuge in Him.” What a comforting text – especially right now!
