Yes, life has been crazy. This week was no different. Thankfully we're slowly learning how to balance the time and hand things off that we don't need to do. Unfortunately we can only hand so many things off. This week meant a little more stress than usual. I gave the talk at our weekly meeting, which was a little more challenging than I would've liked considering the translation needed. Imagine having to pause for every sentence although you have a fluid idea going. It's not very fun. But we had a good turnout at the meeting, so that was awesome!
And Julieta's birthday was this week so we took them dinner and had cake. For her, it was a pretty low key birthday since they're not comfortable taking the new baby out much. We haven't been able to see their family much since they moved and had a baby. The kids loved getting to be silly with Lucas and Matias. Leah was practicing her Spanish (I'm pretty sure it was straight up gibberish).
Overall though this week has been a rough one in processing things with the Lord. As we think about the future of the movement here and our involvement in it, it's hard to know what to do with our futures. Sure, it's pretty easy to say that we just want to go back to the States. Life is hard. I don't want to have to stop at numerous kiosks to find milk. I would like to have power consistently. And don't even get me started on the mosquitos.
Anyways there's been a lot going on in our hearts. What to do with our future. As we have conversations about it (it's seriously impossible to wait until December), it's so hard to know what to do. Our hearts just break for the people here and the need. But it's just not that simple. Or is it? And there are transitions going on in the country that we have no control over. We just have to choose to be faithful while we're here and figure out our future in time. Would you pray with us?
That's all for now. My thoughts aren't very gathered/cohesive right now, so this is what you get. But this song came to mind this morning so I thought I would share it. Such a great song.
