This morning my soul is soaring as I anticipate a reunion that has been eighteen years in the making! Eighteen years ago, I had the privilege of traveling to Montana to meet up with a group of strangers to prepare for and then pursue the mission field. I essentially knew no one, and had just graduated from university. Upon my arrival, I was thrust into a group of 30+ young adults, and spent every waking moment in their presence.
This weekend, today in fact, I will be reunited with six of these amazing women, all these years later…
Our lives have taken numerous twists and turns over our time apart, yet our hearts have remained connected, as our time together so long ago, created this wonderful, crazy community that became considered family.
I am blessed beyond what my heart can hold, to again spend time with my sisters in Christ.
My departure time is in mere minutes, so I am off to pack the car and hit the road. I look forward to sharing what He teaches me through my time with these wonderful kindred spirits.
Blessings to all,
