How do you say goodbye? Today was one of the hardest days of my life. Yep, it was the day I had to say goodbye to my sister-n-law. It was tough saying goodbye to my BIL, Jon and the four kids but it was especially hard to say goodbye to Tina! We have been sisters now for 7 years and we've become best friends! I don't know how many times we've been told we're like Lucy and Ethel.
I know God has called them to reach the people in South East Asia and I know He has a plan for their lives! I'm trusting Him to watch over them and protect them as they start this new journey! I'm reminded of a couple verses...
Mark 16:15 ~ Go into all the world and teach the good news to all creation.
What a wonderful example of following God's orders as Christians. I know He doesn't call each of us to go into all the world because some of us are just called to go into our own neighborhoods. He has a plan for each of our lives.
Genesis 31:49 ~ May the Lord watch between you and me when we are absent from one another.
I actually found a really cool necklace that says this verse. It's like those friendship necklaces that split in the middle. I kept half and she took the other half as a reminder of our friendship and the love the Lord has for each of us.
Please be in prayer for them as they follow God's calling! We trust that He is going to use them in a mighty way to reach people that don't know Him!!
