The Road Goes On
Robin and I have come to the realization that our family is being called away from Rwanda. We felt that our move here was a step of faith and we’ve always said that leaving would have to come from the same kind of leading. Three weeks ago a conversation happened that woke us both up to the fact that we are definitely being led away.
We don’t know for sure where we will end up. We do know that we need to spend some time State-side before we head out on another international adventure. We really want to give Ellie Jo a lot of time around family for a while.
We have less than 9 weeks left in this country and the roller coaster of emotions has already left the loading platform. We daily experience the anticipation of being closer to family and the excitement over getting to eat cheese whenever we want. We also look at all of the unknowns involved in this move and wonder what in the world we’re thinking!
We love almost every part of our life in Rwanda. Most of our married life has been spent here. Our little family grew here. We know how to grocery shop and how to buy airtime for phones and internet. We have dear friends and happy pets. But we also feel very sure that all of this growth as a family is for a reason and the time has come to continue growing somewhere else. So we’re off!
