Tom Petty said it best, “the waiting is the hardest part”. With a little less than 2 years to go, both Jeff and I find ourselves having to be patient. We are both ready for this endeavor/journey, but know now is not the right time. What keeps us going since making the decision to pull the kids out of school and out of everyone’s comfort zone to travel the world for 1 year while serving and attending to those in need, is that we continually experience people, events, sermons, books, etc that continue to strengthen our desire and God’s will for us to keep moving forward; to continue the process of “going deep” into our faith in Jesus and God’s plan for our family. Its going to be a long 2 years of waiting and planning, but we truly believe that God’s plan for us is beyond our comprehension and that He will always guide us on our way, if we just listen with open hearts.
