Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

As of 8:32 a.m., I officially signed and faxed my commitment letters. Well, to be more accurate, I signed them last night, but you get the picture.  Commitment letters for what, you say?  Well, the big news that I have been blogging about and Twittering about is finally official, finally happening.  I’m going to South Africa for a year from January 19th to December 6th.  I will be participating in the 1-Year Internship program through Thrive Africa.  I praise God for all of the ways that He has been at work already in allowing this opportunity to come about and how He will continue to be with me through the preparation and the following year.  I have a lot to prepare!  But, I am pumped!  More than anything, I am excited to see God through this process.  My head swirls with all sorts of details and thoughts, but ever since this morning I wanted to blog about this!  There you have it.  The big news.  More to come as I continue to prepare and process and get there.  For now, please pray for my family as they adjust to this drastic change, pray for me as I prepare and as I raise money and get all the details together.  

Snapshot of some of the things I’ll get to do this next year: 

Teach discipleship classes in rural villages
Facilitate pastors’ conferences and other training events
Attend weekly classes taught by full-time missionaries
Host mission teams and engage in relationship evangelism
Serve in the day-to-day operation of Thrive Africa

  1. Wow! Congrats. I’m sure you’ve got a lot to get done and wrapped up before leaving. January 18 isn’t all that far off. Will definitely be praying for you.

    Will you keep up the blogging thing while you’re over there?
