Amazing food from the Immigrations police

Starting to fill up my calendar with friends and family events

Surviving my last Yaounde trip and seeing one more impossible

Not realizing the bats that live in the office at the Ministry of External Relations until after my five months of meetings there

Getting to watch a beautiful sky on the drive back from Yaounde

Suzanne’s thoughtfulness

A thoughtful card on my door after a thoughtful prayer from a friend back home

When the little things I think are too silly to actually ask for but somehow someone still knows and makes it happen

Random stops to Andrew’s office and lots of laughs and few face palms

When an idea from years ago finally takes off

When a ship tour does what five months of talking couldn’t … changing hearts right in front of me and a partnership takes an even better turn

Debriefing session with Rachel and giving myself permission to cry a little and feel all the feels from a difficult five month Advance

April’s podcast is back for season 2!

Isaiah 43:19 – See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
