The current Bible teacher at HOPAC and his wife have been at HOPAC for 10 years this year. They are leaving after this year for a year in the states and then heading back to Tanzania to work with a different ministry. They (mostly she) have a blog that I've been stalking. :) I read this post tonight & thought I'd share it. She has a way of describing the beautiful, awesome and meaningful aspects of life there, but also the challenging and heart-breaking parts. The rats and humidity parts get me...ugh.
We know we will experience both the good and the bad, the rewarding and the challenging, the beautiful and the ugly. We are confident in the Lord's leading and know he will be faithful through it all.
