It was a world where paper was unknown, and my way of relating to words was suddenly irrelevant. At first, I struggled to find myself.

A Year of Blessings

I will forever remember 2012 as our year of reluctant transition. It was inevitable. We had been preparing for it. Yet, January 1, 2012 arrived abruptly. We reluctantly left our desert home in Namibia and stepped into a foggy maze of transitions. Now, looking back on the year, we can truly see God’s hand leading us through the maze. The path was filled with twists and turns, yet never led to any dead ends. As we moved forward, groping in the mist, suddenly and unexpectedly the sun would shine, showing the way forward and warming and energizing us. We would skip down the path, truly enjoying ourselves. We can truly praise God for a year of blessings.
