In about 24 hours, I’ll be swimming in babies & toddlers in Angola with my Saving Moses work. One part of me loves this immeasurably & one part of me hates this almost more than anything. I loathe seeing emaciated babies, whose lives are literally hanging by a thread & their faces from previous trips still haunt me.
While I get to travel with an absolutely awesome team & they’re MASSIVELY fun, I also know that each of us will soon be over our heads, swimming in the deep end of emotions, raw hearts scrapped on a grater & overwhelming questions that can only be divinely soothed.
I’ll go to sleep soon on a plane & wake up in a different world, try to get my bearings & love well. Over the next week, I’ll post some about my trip, along with some insightful & intimate God thoughts. Stay tuned 🙂
