A Hard Decision

Life seems to be full of decisions. Lately, I have been working on wedding plans, tutoring kids after school, and hanging out with my host family. This may or may not come as a surprise, but I am doing these things from Cleveland, Ohio.

I know... I am suppose to be in Kenya. And I was, as you can tell from my posts, but plans have changed. After Josh tore his ACL and MCL at a soccer game in September, he returned home for surgery. I made the decision to pack up early and follow him in order to support him through his time in rehab. I am happy to report that it was a successful surgery and his knee is healing as expected. Josh wants to go back to playing professionally so this is an answer to prayers. Leaving Kenya was hard, but I don't regret the decision I made. My heart will forever be in two places, Africa and the states. One day, I hope to return. I think of the people I left behind everyday.

Wow. Life takes some interesting turns doesn't it? I hope Josh's recovery goes as well as the surgery did. He's in good hands. ;-) It'll be interesting to see where God places you both next in ministry...

Well, you have answered some of my outstanding questions. I am glad to hear that Josh is doing well after surgery. And, although it is selfish, I am glad you are stateside again.

Jenn and I wish you both a Happy Thanksgiving and hope to hear more news soon.
