Home from the East.

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation,  the news that the God of Israel reigns!" --Isaiah 52:7


I have recently returned home from a two-month trip to Nepal and Bangladesh, and I can sense that I've been changed.  As I attempt to fit myself back into everyday life back at home, I can sense that a little part of me feels different.  I can't really figure it out completely, but I think after having such an experience overseas, it is expected that I be changed.

In the next few months, I plan on writing about thoughts and experiences that occurred while overseas. If you've ever been overseas for a season of time, you can probably relate to the fact that such an experience takes some processing through.  If you've never been overseas, I hope that my processings will help you to glimpse in a new way the joys and the difficulties of experiencing a new culture, a different religion, and the customs that accompany both.  I hope I can shed light on my belief that a country's unique systemic needs cannot be overcome apart the power and the strength of the Holy Spirit of God.  I pray that I can write about the Great Commission in such a way that the Holy Spirit speaks straight to our hearts, guiding us in the pursuits that He wants us to be a part of for His Kingdom.
