Monday Musings = 18/10/10
No one ever told me when I became a global worker just how exciting life would become. Over the last two weeks I have travelled in everything from planes to trains and U-Haul trucks.
Flying a red-eye special from Vancouver last Sunday night allowed me to get home in time for a wonderful thanksgiving meal with my family. MJ cooked one of the best turkey meals ever last Monday!!!
Then on Wednesday and Thursday MJ and I, with the help of some dear friends, loaded a U-Haul truck with furniture, flooring and personal items and headed down the 401 to Chatham Ontario. On Friday, we unloaded the U-Haul at Loads of Love in Chatham, a humanitarian/missions organization which is run in its entirety by an incredible group of volunteers. The items that you see pictured will be loaded on a container at the end of this month bound for Kitwe Zambia. Donations of office furniture for RTC’s new leadership center at Trans-Africa Theological College, flooring for our new home in Kitwe, boxes of books for the Bible College in Congo, material for the sewing center and so much more will cross the ocean and find a new home in Africa.
To top it all off, after speaking at Royal View in London, MJ and I got on a VIA train and headed back to Montreal last night. If you haven’t tried the train, don’t knock it, it is a great way to go (how I wish VIA would sponsor me for the promotion).
So I must say that life as a global worker is certainly an adventure and you know what, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I told the congregation in London yesterday that stepping out of the boat requires faith and so far we have not sunk because we have kept our eyes on Jesus. He has become the focal point of what we do and how we live and I plan on continuing to focus on Him – eye-ball to eye-ball!
Until next time…
