So, you can imagine what one slice of that 52 week segment looks like. Unbelievable – WITH Unprecedented speed—the days flew by.
We met and worked with a new missionary. We have been so used to working with seasoned and much loved Missionary, Mike Baldree, that working with someone new seemed—well, like putting on tennis shoes without socks. I could still wear them—but it didn’t feel the same. Probably not a real good analogy, but hear me out.
This was a unique week. It was learning. Stretching. Newness. God placed Missionary Jeremiah Campbell in our lives for a reason…and he sowed some seeds of faith. Stretch what we have—and lean in for more. It was a good—really good week. He brought with him a young man of strong faith and character, Evan Thacker—we got to know him a little better than the other members of his team simply because we had more time with him.
I know without DOUBT that they probably wondered what they had gotten into with our band of northwest Florida “country-talking” missionaries. But our heart’s are just exploding with love for Bolivia and missions and the call of Christ Jesus.
I was able to have a great conversation with Jeremiah about some of the ins-and outs of mission work. And in a conversation that he had with someone from our team (I was a listener), he shared things about missions that I had had questions about—but had never voiced aloud. That, my friend, is the God I serve.
Here are a few pics from the few days. I really spent a lot of time behind the camera and very little talking with others unless we were sitting at a table…I felt like I could best serve the mission—and future mission projects with my focus clear….
After all…we have so little time…
