Over All

We have officially been in Mexico the same amount of time that we were in Virginia for training. That is a WEIRD thought. Sometimes it feels like it's been 2 years since January. We went from selling our house and most of our things, to packing for training, headed out to 7 weeks of training in VA starting January 25, came home and finished repacking and saying goodbye, and then headed to Mexico April 1st! I think of all the things we have been through....all the things the kids have been through....all the things our marriage has been through since January. And how God is over all. There have been SO many huge life changes for us and all in a row! We're getting ready to have ANOTHER huge life change.....adding another human to our family very, very soon (hopefully)! Sometimes I sit and think about it and how it's even possible. God is over all. I could give you a long, detailed report about how crazy everything has been: how the kids have worked on adjusting, how Mark and I have had some really tough days, how hard parenting is, how my 8 month pregnant body hurts, how language school is SO cool and so intense, how we love EVERYthing we have tasted so far, what our favorite food is, where our favorite parks are, etc BUT I don't want this to just be an anecdote of my thoughts. I want to share what God is doing and how He is moving in us all. (If you do want to know about the many subjects above though, please send me a message at the bottom of this page! I love answering questions!) We see how God is merciful and gracious in leading us in parenting and in working in the lives of our kids. It doesn't mean it is always easy, but it DOES mean His mercies are new every morning, and He is faithful when we ask for wisdom. We see how all of our new friendships are deepening and how and why God has placed these people in our lives. I prayed specifically for a pregnant friend in Mexico (before even leaving the states) and now I have a close friend here who is ....7 months pregnant! God is over all. Mark was hoping to make a good friend, especially who would help him with his Spanish learning, and we had that good friend (and his family) over for dinner last night! God is over all. These may seem like small, trivial things to you. Before even starting training in Virginia we were not thinking correctly. Our brains were focused on the future - on Colombia. Not a bad thing, BUT some wise friends advised us to root ourselves in Mexico. "Don't just think of it as a year of language learning. Make friends. Make lifelong friends!" This is our home for a year. Our home. What God can do in this year! Don't limit yourselves and definitely don't limit God. Our other huge blessing has been our church. Our home church for this year is amazing; they welcomed us in immediately and showered us with words of love and even gifts! They check in with us regularly asking us how they can pray, asking us if we need anything. They are family. God is over all. At this point I can't believe we have been living in Mexico for 2 months. But at the same time it feels like home already. I already get sad thinking about leaving next year. Obedience is one of the purest forms of worship. Sometimes, even if you have no idea what you're doing, you just obey. You keep your eyes on Him. And let God work. ~2 Chron. 20:12~
