Along with 10 other individuals. Including her and him.
I've never been on a mission trip, but I will be on one. Soon.
I've never been to Africa, but I'm going to Botswana. Soon.
I've never led a small group discussion with a stranger in a foreign country or in the US for that matter, but I will. Soon.
The Daddy and I are going together to grow closer to one another in Christ while we help facilitate a conference with Open Baptist Church in Botswana. David and Denise Glenn will be leading the conference entitled, Freedom for Families, modeled after Denise's study Freedom for Mothers and David's study, Wisdom for Fathers.
I HAVE heard Denise speak on a couple of occasions, and I HAVE done two of her bible studies for moms. After hearing her story of obedience to God, I HAVE come to understand more about my OWN calling as a wife, mother and Christian woman.
Our part in the conference may be small, but I know God's plans for this mission reach far beyond my little part. Is it possible to feel so little, yet feel so empowered by His Spirit?
It's a 10-day trip. Soon.
We'll be gone from our girls for longer than we've ever been before, but we'll be together.
Is it ironic that we're leaving our children to facilitate a conference for families?
Is it scary that every minute isn't planned and I have NO WAY to control what God has in store for me? Wait, a minute...
Isn't that how each and every day is? I think I am in control, but I am not.
And now I'm going. I never thought I would.
Well...I never, but I will.
