so here i go…
Approximately 12 hours ago, i kissed my wonderful wife at the security counter in Harrisburg. Once through security, I looked back one last time before I went to look for my departure gate.
Now I am flying at 35,000 feet, somewhere over the Black Sea about to fly over Iraq then on to Doha.
My body is telling me it is about 8am, but the watch on my arm says 3pm, which will be my new local time.
The last 3 months have been very intense. It started with simply accepting the job overseas, then waiting. Waiting to get the approval from the client, waiting to get the approval for the visa from the consulate, waiting for movers, waiting for airplanes, and next I’ll be waiting for the day I can bring my family along on the trip to our new home.
I am very thankful for all the love and support we have received. This has been a goal of ours for 7 or 8 years now. Kelsie and I have continually worked towards this goal and it is amazing to see it come to reality.
I won’t pretend to think that it won’t be difficult, I know there will be very difficult hurdles to overcome. The bottom line is… Wherever you go.. We will follow.
Kelsie and I talked about that subject this week, we believe we have been called to travel the world, meet new people, love on people wherever we go and follow God.
