Just recently Norah has been so doing so well, I have to say I am almost bored at times. Which being a missionary wife this should not be. I go back and forth between, I’m doing the right thing by taking care of my family and home, and I should be more involved in ministry of some kind. It is a constant battle in my mind.
Recently the Lord has opened up doors for me to minister in some way to different people, not anything major, just little areas mainly friendships. I cannot begin to explain how fulfilling this has been. Another thing is I have always felt that I could not be close with someone who spoke another language. Yes I debated whether i should write that or not. I guess I was never willing to admit that could be the issue. It could also be that being in transition makes it a little hard to get close to people. Almost like why bother, we’re leaving anyway. I was completely wrong in both areas.
I have always liked Peru, but the Lord has given me more of a love for this place, and for the people here. I am mostly thankful for the friends he has given me while we have been here. Those I have learned from whether it be language, ministry, or simply patience. (with me, for example) I can’t really say I am ministering, it is more like I am being ministered to.
