Two days before Christmas I got a call from a friend asking me to come and staff the justice-focused DTS (Discipleship Training School) in Kona, Hawaii for the next three months. After prayer and relinquishing all the happy expectations I had for this time, I felt like God said, “Go. This is an opportunity I’ve opened for you.” So with only days to prepare, I arrived here on Monday night. It’s been a delightful adventure so far, and I expect to have some great things to report in the coming weeks!
In the meantime I’ve been thinking about how grateful I am for friends like you who faithfully read these entries, pray, support, and converse with me through your comments. You have no idea what a blessing it is to log on and see that some sweet friend has dropped in and left a note of encouragement or some thoughts to chew on. You are part of a small army who keeps me encouraged, supported, and challenged. THANK YOU, (or as they say in Kona “mahalo”), for being a part of this adventure!!
