"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

I guess you could say we are "home". Halfway through the London flight Henry finally perked up.

We plan to write more about our final goodbyes in the next few days, especially one situation that happened on our last day at the school.

We are called to be obedient no matter the cost. We have done that, and in some cases it has been to our detriment (on earth). But we don't look for the praises of men, as nice as that would be! We are all accountable to the Lord. We have (tried) to stand up for what is right, even when it is not "convenient" for us. Sometimes we have to suffer through a trial on earth. But truthfully-we do have JOY through it. NOT happy/feeling joy-but joy in the Lord. Joy is doing what He called us to do. Joy that we have had just a taste of His suffering (and more will come!).

Are you willing to drink from that cup too? To take the PRIVILEGE of drinking from Christ's cup?

And YES!! We do plan on continuing to blog. This is our personal blog about our faith journey. It has never been a blog about the school, we've just written about it, because that is where we were. Sure, we were/are missionaries and we hope this blog gave you a small taste of what a first term missionary may being going through.

But this blog is about "it". What is it??

So, just what is "it"? "It" is our faith in Jesus Christ. "It" is our Christian walk. "It" is following our call-our call to be obedient to Christ. "It" is loving those around us, whether here or in Zambia, Africa. "It" is what we are all called to be. "It" is furthering the kingdom of Christ. "It" is a personal relationship with Christ. "It" is being totally devoted to my Lord and King and following wherever He may lead me.
