I Miss Him Already
June 18, 2014

As I write this there is a plane descending into Amsterdam. It is only the first leg of a very long journey for my husband Russ.

I’m excited for him but not as much as I have been in the past. Maybe I’m just tired. Maybe because he hurt his back yesterday and it was a tough ride to the airport, three hours north of us.

Whatever it is, I’m already counting the minutes until he gets back. I love doing life with him, even when life gets hard.

It hasn’t always been this way. We’ve had our moments, our days, our years. We’ve spent way too much time fighting each other when we clearly should have fought for each other.

Now we are finding that our passion is deeply intertwined. We have a deep desire to see people fall in love with Jesus. We know what our faith has done for us and sharing that with hurting people has become a deep desire.

I’ll be posting updates here from the team over the next few weeks. I love sharing the work he does. Maybe the time won’t drag on as long as this flight seems to have and we’ll have plenty to do here.

Tomorrow I’ll post the itinerary with any updates I have.


Here they go!
