Red Light, Yellow Light, Green Light

We're sitting at the airport, minutes from departing.  It has been such a long weekend but such a wonderful and fulfilling experience.  We said from day one, no matter what happened we were coming home changed people and that is exactly how I feel.

The big question is how did the interview, and the subsequent decision go?  Well in short it went fantastic!  We left today with a thumbs up from Christian Associates and we couldn't be more excited.  They see in us a potential to step out on the mission field and work with them. 

While I feel like it has been a long journey to this point, it is true that the journey has just begun.  From here we begin training and placement discernment.  Also, our "light" didn't come without conditions.  Alex and I have only had one significant international experience before so we have much to learn.

This week we have had the pleasure of meeting some really incredible people and today it was so difficult to say good-bye.  We lived in tight quarters so our group became quite tight-knit early on.
Today is bittersweet.  I am so excited for our future, scared that life is really going to change, anxious because it is still a very long process, sad to leave our new friends and above all grateful and amazed that God would choose to use me. 

Happy Sunday friends!
