We are sitting in the Charlotte airport, waiting for a flight. This morning we locked the door and said goodbye to our house in Boone. (Yes, we did turn off the iron and the oven). The long journey began.
This morning we read from Zecharaiah. One verse said, "Do not despise these small beginnings, for The Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerrubabel's hand." Sometimes the work ahead of us seems like we're trying to build a temple. It seems like we're starting out with just a piece of string in our hands, but we're excited to start.
Please pray for us. We will spend Christmas in Switzerland. By January 1, we should be in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
