When Things Fall Apart

Sometimes, even in ministry, everything just falls apart.  The foundation has crumbled, the walls have collapsed, the seed has rotted, and the sprouts are choked by weeds and burnt by the sun.  Sometimes by the end, there’s nothing to show for our years of efforts.

Our Double Lives

Where we are now is about as close as we can come to being on the exact opposite side of the world from where we were just a month ago. Sometimes that’s what it can feel like, going from one side of the planet to the other – like we’re standing upside down…

Treasure

How could I take a 9-month-old, and a 2 ½-year-old and a 4-year-old to a place where they could get sick or hurt and be days away from medical care? A place with no schools, where my wife and I would have to struggle to educate them, where they would be exposed to demonic activity and where child trafficking happens? I was ashamed of myself that I was not strong enough to pay that price.

Visiting the US Next Year!

That’s what our last few years have been like here on Nosy Mitsio: exciting! Challenging! Full of promise, hope, struggles, loss, and gain. In it all we see God at work. He’s maintained us, given us strength and perseverance when we’ve needed it most, and he’s opened our eyes to see…

As a Child

Can you imagine being born again? Everything you see is for the first time. The world is bright and the sights are strange. Everyone’s talking at you and they’re clearly excited to see you, but none of it makes sense: it all just sounds like gibberish…

How time flies. Your boys have grown so much. Hope David’s day was wonderful!

Its my favorite time of the year: litchi season! It only lasts about one month, or on lucky years, sometimes a little longer. Theyre a little red berry-ish (but not really) sort of fruit that grow abundantly on very large trees. Theyre my favorite fruit! During litchi season I usually eat a bit over one pound of litchi per day, for as long as I can keep buying them in the market!   😋😋😋Image attachmentImage attachment

Happy Thanksgiving from the Willards! We're thankful for a God who chooses to call his people to participate in his work. We're thankful also for a God who always takes care of us whatever obstacles or challenges we face - we know that where he's leading us is always good. We're thankful for a healthy family and our two awesome sons. And we're thankful that, this year at least, we get to have a mostly-American-like set of Thanksgiving food. We all enjoyed it!

Our main meal was fried chicken pieces, green bean casserole, and mashed potatoes and gravy - all entirely from scratch! (Because we had no choice otherwise, haha!) And our dessert options were pumpkin pie (also from scratch), litchi, and bananas. That's one thing I'm also thankful for right now: litchi season has just begun and they're my favorite fruit!
