Tomorrow Bryan and I leave for our 3rd trip to Mozambique with a team of people from our church. It's just before 9pm and Bryan is FAST asleep (how does he do that??) and just 2 hours ago, we dropped Liya off at very good friends of ours.
And for the first time I feel a little less excited and a little more sad, because we're leaving our baby at home. I miss her so much already.
There's no way I can sleep at this time, so I decided there was no better time to start writing about our trip. This blog has become such a great life memoir for me, as I look back on when we first created it for our wedding, and some of my first posts when life seemed so simple and I seemed so naive. It's like looking through old photo albums, except I also get to see how much my thinking has developed and changed.
So tomorrow I get up at 4am... 4 hours before I usually get up, lol. (I am really hoping to kill some bad habits while on this trip, but I know it won't be a problem). Mozambique is always such an incredible experience, mentally and physically, but especially spiritually. I am so excited to share what God is doing in Moz, and how He will change our lives once again.
And it's so bittersweet, because every day I'll be missing my baby and thankful it's only 1 week.
I'll post all my updates when we get back - in the meantime, please keep us in your prayers.
