What Have You (or I) Given Up?

Many of you know that we thought that we would be in Nicaragua right now. God had a plan the whole time, which intended for us to be right where we are after attending training to work as missionaries. As an added bonus, we had the great privilege of getting to know lots of families who are now laboring in fields (literally and metaphorically) all over the world. We may not have the honor to be counted among them, but knowing them is infinitely more than we deserve.

Every once in a while I get hit in the head with how incredibly spoiled we are. Here we are, in the U.S., enjoying all of the amenities of American life, enjoying the shower of God’s blessings without the struggles that many of our friends are facing. We are called to be right where we are.

We have some friends who have been called to the jungle. They have made a video tour of their home. I gently request that you take the time to download it and watch it, keeping in mind that the wife is pregnant (bless her heart!). What a joy to know such people!
