My family and I have been on deputation going to Argentina as church planting missionaries for 23 months now. We have seen God build our support. As of this post, we are only 47 days away from our departure. We will be leaving for the field on March 24, 2016. With only 47 days left, I have a lot on my mind. My wife and I are taking our girls and moving to another country, where they will grow up. This is not a temporary thing, this is what we are doing with our lives! What goes through your mind when such a drastic change is about to take place? This is a new series of posts in which I will address what is on my mind.
Sorting, Selling, Storing, Giving, Packing.
Yes, packing is on my mind. Leslie and I have been married 11 years. It is amazing all we have accumulated in 11 years of marriage. We have a lot of sorting to do. Some things will be given away, others will be sold, a very small amount will be stored, and other things will be packed to go with us. We have a lot to do and a very limited time to do it. During the next 47 days, we have scheduled meetings with churches to continue to present what God is doing in our hearts. This is a good thing but it takes us away from our home, where we are sorting, selling, storing, giving away, and packing. In fact, as I am typing this post, I am in New York. So we truthfully don’t have 47 complete days to get all of this done. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining at all. This is just one of those things that are on my mind (and on my wife’s mind too!). We will get it done. On March 23, everything will be sorted, sold, stored, given away, and packed. This is just one of the many things that are on our minds as we near the end of our deputation.
More is coming. Check back soon.
