"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

At the beginning of August (09) we had sent out a private email to some of our closest prayer people asking them to pray with us as we prayed about leaving the project and Zambia. One of the gals said something about how she felt led in prayer that it would be confirmed “out of the mouths of babes.” She didn’t know what it meant and neither did we. We never had a direct correlation at that time. Well, reading through our blog now-I do see it. In fact I used those exact words. I wrote in December (09) about our last day at the school and how as we were leaving Myron was singing “I will follow Jesus, I will follow Jesus, I will follow Jesus…” and my comment was “out of the mouths of babes!”

I (Brian) have shared this story several times and every time I cry. I can still see that day in my mind’s eye. It feels like it happened just this morning. I can see myself sitting behind the steering wheel of the red bus heading down the road (by ourselves) just the family. Kelly and I were crying and so were the Cybil, Mariah, Greta, and Hailey. Then out of nowhere Myron starts singing. He was an instrument of God that day without any doubt. How fitting it seemed with everything else that had happened. We got there on our own with very little to no help of the agency and we left without the help of anyone at the agency (here or there). The pain of that day is still very real. I try not to think back on that day, it is still painful. It still brings tears to my eyes.
