When pulling up stakes and moving around the world, it’s fairly safe to assume we will not be known. But we can take it for granted - this calling, this Holy Spirit prompt - that if God has told us to go, untold blessings on the other side will make the sacrifice worth it.
My slightly delusional thoughts were twofold:
For starters, won’t it be exciting to start fresh with a whole new community of people? I can be a new me and all the baggage of past relationships and experiences will pale in comparison.
And as a bonus, I’ll fit right into a formed team of people who are already familiar to me! Our email presence has been pretty extensive over the years of support-raising, so I’m ready to take my place alongside them, with our shared vision and experience of relocating and serving cross-culturally.
I mean, what could go wrong?
