Almost 20 years ago when I left for the Philippines I could have never imagined how my life would turn out. I boarded a plane and just trusted God for my future.
Now leaving the Philippines I have many stories I could share. I had the privilege to be apart of many lives. Not only in the Philippines but in many nations in Asia. Yes, I believe I have touched many lives, but my life has been transformed as well.
Yes, there has been challanges; strained relationships, financial hardships, and sickness. But I would not take that away ether if I could. If it wasn't for those things I would not be the person who I am today. So even with the tough times I am grateful.
Now we look forward to a major change in our life. The nation I left when I was 22 is not the same nation I am coming back too. When I left the States I had one bag. Now I bring back to America my family. Just has the nation has changed, so have I.
This May 3 we will board a plane and fly to Colorado. And then by June we will be settling into our new home and join hands with YWAM Charlotte.
So bye for now Philippines. Even though my address will no longer be in you, you will always be in my heart.
In about 9 hours from the time of this post Haydee will be in the US Embassy walking through the procedure that will end with her being interviewed for her green card. Please pray for favor and that everything will go smoothly.
We learned that Haydee is required to do a one day seminar required by the Philippine government. Haydee has already did a seminar like this 14 years ago and we have that certificate proving she has completed it. Pray that the certificate will be accepted so she will not be required to do the seminar again.
Thank you for those are praying.
