t-minus 6.5 hours. Less by the time I finish this.
I’m really bummed that I wasn’t able to see and talk to everyone much the last few days, like Jackie, Troy, Mrs. Kohl, Mr. Enns, all you SFCers, like Abby, Ev, Kevin, Sarah, Kathey and everyone else.
I’m packed, and ready to leave, from the logistical standpoint. But I’m not sure if I’m ready to leave. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be. Weird feelings all around.
It was good to see Sam Wu today before I took off. I am very glad to hear how God is working in His life, especially through this past summer in Mexico City. Talking to him reminded me how much I want to make sure my life is grounded in the Lord, and living incarnationally among my mission field, and not secluding myself or separating myself from them. Where they are, I want to be. A coherent, holistic ministry. Not just the shotgun approach, with one program here, and one program there.
I hope to get to do some traveling and sightseeing while on this mission trip. There’s a lot of cool stuff to see in the different places that I’ll be over the year.
I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me, both as an individual, and as a part of the community there. Not just my teammates, but with the new friends I’ll make, and the new brothers and sisters I’ll meet.
well, I’m tired, and I’m getting kinda sentimental I think. Anyway, please pray for me, all who read this. Email me, also, and keep in contact. I’d love to hear from you, and hear how y’all are doing, and how God is working in your life, and what I can be praying for. phfung at alumni (dot) *** (dot) edu. There might be email updates going out occasionally, so if you’re interested in getting those, let me know too
This may be the last update in a while, but I promise to post what I can, when I can.
