Starting Over Again
'The Lord says, "Heaven is my throne. The earth is my footstool. What kind of house are you going to build for me? Where will I rest?'
It's been two years since Jeff's been gone. Two years, and four mission trips later, I'm headed back to New Orleans again. Timing is everything.
"12 over 12" turned into "9 over 1". But the right week for me. Yeah, timing is everything.
Is this a break from the journey, a new journey, or the same journey?
New team members keep asking: what, when, where, why, how. I try not to smile as I just keep saying, "I don't know."
For me this trip is significantly different already. My team members trust me for no other reason than I've done this before. I'm not in charge, just slightly seasoned; lightly experienced. Is there such a thing as a sub-leader?
I do know some things: Monday will be hard for them. A 1/2 day of orientation, and a 1/2 day of assessing needs, procuring supplies, presenting a game plan, choosing team member roles. Not much physical work will get done on Monday. But, GOD's work has already started.
