In early June, we left the only home we knew on this island to start anew. Moving just five minutes down the road opened up a world of difference. Instantly, we could use all fourteen seats at our table. Every family member could have a seat in the living room. Families could join us for fellowship, food, and games. There was space for kids to play and adults to talk. Just five minutes down the road.
In the past couple of weeks since we moved in, we have hosted no less than seven meals! Each family, kid, and friend who walks in the door comments on how at home they feel. Laughter comes, truths are shared, and their callings are affirmed.
Our callings are affirmed as well.
We are called here to encourage the serving. To love on those living day in and day out in the trenches. To provide refuge to those far from loved ones. To be that safe place to cry, vent, pray, and praise. Every time people cross our threshold, we are given the opportunity to obey His leading.
Thank you for this new home-a beautiful refuge in the midst of battles. Your love, prayers, support, and encouragement have made this place a reality. Thank you. Oodles. Terima Kasih, y’all!
