I was sitting at my desk, on a call with a friend, and she asked, “Where have you been?”
I wasn’t sure exactly what she meant… South Africa? Working? Homeschooling my girls?
She said, “Well, another friend at church was asking about you because we don’t see you online much anymore. We see brief updates but not the inside look and fun posts that we’re used to seeing. She just wanted to know if you were ok.”
It’s hard to explain how hard being in missions and being online is sometimes. The longer we’re in missions, the longer we’re on this incredibly, amazingly hard journey, the harder it gets to explain.
I could keep telling you about how our house leaks, the ants are everywhere, about the language funnies and cultural misunderstandings, the weird feeling of driving on the opposite side of the road from the opposite side of the car… passport adventures, paperwork, currencies… that’s all still happening. All the things I write about are still there.
But, maybe that’s it. It’s daily now. It’s not new anymore.
It’s our life.
A life that is taking me on a deeper personal journey than I ever anticipated.
