I’m Back…

If you haven’t caught the twittering going on lately, I’ve been back from Ethiopia now for about one week.  There’s been a lot of catching up and transitioning going on, so I’ve been pretty silent here.

Travis and GizawEthiopia was amazing.  I will try and post some stories and photos soon, but I want to tell the stories in a way that’s fair for those who have been supporting me in prayer and through finances first.  Fairly shortly I will be writing an article for the House of Friends July (or August) newsletter, so I may post that here as well.  Thank you to everyone who encouraged, prayed, and gave to make this last trip possible.  It was definitely not in vain.

In the Lord, I need to get back into the secret place in a major way.  I’m realizing that I rely on the relationships around me as a primary conduit for revelation, insight, and motivation.  And while I wholeheartedly believe that the Lord uses relationships for that very purpose I’m realizing I have grown lazy in actually hearing from Him on things that are important.  I’ll probably have to confess that to my group of guys in the morning.

Lastly, I’m going to try and post here more in the future.  I won’t say how often my goal is lest I fail to make it and look like a fool, but I will tell you I want to post here more than I am.  It’s good to be back!
