My wife is leaving me today and going to her home country of Liberia, West Africa for three weeks. She is going to do some incredible work for the organization Think Liberia.
She is fleeing the pressures and stresses of the Western mindset to find herself once again in the very familiar slow, but often frustrating culture of West Africa, a pace she embraces and longs for, the birth place of her heart.
She goes this time for several big “Callings.”
1. Down payment on land for a future compound for THINK
2. Moving her sister’s remains to new location by the sea – the ocean that took her life almost 30 years ago (Her naturally born older sister drowned on her Senior class trip and was buried on a compound in Liberia)
3. Securing a rental headquarters for the organization and our church planting initiative there.
4. Putting stakes in ground around a historic home for the victims of “Gender Based Violence” in the THINK program
Needless to say, I am quite proud of my wife! She walks in great faith, hears God with incredible clarity and loves her husband, family and others to the point of “great pain.” I am truly blessed.
Go with all the blessings and love of those you leave behind – my love. You will do and accomplish ALL that God has for you with great power and Godly courage. Then return safely to us.
