Leaving the United States means leaving my comfort zone, but going to Papua New Guinea means going down the path God's laid out. I couldn't ask to be doing anything differently.
So when my family asked me that question last night, I wanted to go bowling! What I wanted more than anything was good quality time with my family before I left. The fact that I smoked them at bowling just added icing to the cake! It comforts me to know that even though I'm going to a completely different country, I'm still going to be with God's family. Even though I'm leaving my blood family for awhile, I get to spend eternity with them.
Tomorrow I leave for Papua New Guinea. I would appreciate prayers for safe and seamless travel. The flight itinerary is listed under "Prayer Requests."
