APRIL 2011VOLUME 44
Oh! Speak Lord!
Living and working in thePhilippines blessed me in so many ways. The lessons I learned there, thetraining I got, and especially thepeople I met, changedme radically. When I returned tothe States, my family was surprised by theperson I’d become. You cannot live in a country without assimilating certaincharacteristics. You just can’t.But living in the Philippines wasn’t the first time a country imprinted on me. Before then, it wasFrance and Spain. Now, I find myself in Sudan. Each country has taught me a new way to view the world -- a new frame upon which my storiesrest. To say that these experienceshave changed me would be anunderstatement. Today as I look back,I’m shocked by the journey so far.My path has taken me onsome outrageous twistsand turns.Did I think I would be a missionary in Sudan ten years ago?
Did Iguess I would bedelivering babies (and loving it!) five years ago!
Not in my wildest dreams!
Speak, LORD for your servant is listening.
’ (I Sam 3:9),He startled me in His love!May we all experience this kindof leading. May we all recognize His voice and obey... even if it meansgoing to Africa! I have never been sohappy as when I let God lead! Where is He leading you today? Wherever it might be, trust it’s just perfect for you, for He knows youperfectly!Love,
“ I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace untohis people, and tohis saints...”
