To start off, thank you. For your prayers, encouragement, and blessing. It really helps steady my resolve to push forward. As an update, I've turned my application forms into Ozark, and so now I await word on continuing my degree.
I was reading Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell, and he says part of being a follower of Christ is bringing heaven to earth, and not just waiting to get to heaven. Now, I can see how to apply this in cases such as Haiti, or Africa, where we can send food or go dig wells. However, unless I've been completely blind and deaf, I am called to the modernized world of Western Europe. How do I bring heaven to earth there? I'm not of a profession which can shine into someone's existence. I'm just me. Maybe I'm making up excuses like Moses, but really, I have no idea what to do. Teach English, again? Well, I've done it, but I don't think I was that great at it. Really, teaching English is the only idea that comes to mind. If you look below this post, it offers a spot to comment and give input.
Please, feel free.
Grace and Peace.
