It has been three and a half months since we relocated from southern Mexico to Texas. Our boys have all transitioned from home school to public school. I went from working with indigenous groups in the jungle to working at a desk at World Indigenous Missions. Tasty treats that we could only eat on those rare occasions when we were stateside are now found in abundance and I can’t follow my previous practice of pigging out until we go back across the border. I must refrain… or buy larger pants. It is great to be back with loved ones here but now we miss our loved ones there. And although I am from here, a part of my heart will always belong to Mexico.
Throughout this journey of returning “home”, our family has experienced a wide range of emotions. Although it has been a challenging season, we have experienced the grace of God every step of the way. We are truly blessed. We are no longer living on the foreign mission field, yet we are still working in our Father’s harvest.
World Indigenous Missions currently has 65 missionary families serving in 25 countries around the world. WIM does more than just provide administrative services. WIM recruits and trains missionaries. And once they are on the field, WIM continues equipping and caring for them. We are proud to be a part of this team. Your generous gifts allow us to continue serving missionaries and spreading the gospel unto the ends of the earth.
And we are excited about what lies ahead. My 2019 travel calendar is already filling up with new Bible training courses and a medical outreach planned for the Chiapas jungles.
Even though our lives change constantly, it is good to know that God doesn’t.
“I am the Lord, and I do not change.” – Mal. 3:6a (NLT)
