ça vaut le coup....

In about 24 hours I am saying good-bye to the US for about 2 years.  Many people ask me if I'm scared or excited.  It's a very difficult moment to articulate the emotions that accompany leaving.  Saying good-bye to Louisville, where I have lived for the last 12 years, was extremely difficult.  The people who are a part of your everyday life are no longer around.  It's a bitter-sweet moment.  Going to the mission field is the realization of a dream for me- the fulfillment of a calling heard long ago.  Stepping out in faith sometimes means stepping away from the life you've always known.  In God's graciousness, I know that I am not walking away from family or friends.  Those that I love and have grown to love will be supporting me along the way.  I pray that by my going, someone else is able to grow, heal, or step out in faith to what the Lord is calling them to as well.  I know that this journey I take across the ocean is just a continuation of God's story.  And who doesn't want to be a character in God's story of the redemption of His creation back to Himself.  So as I go I can only say that no matter the pages that follow, "ça vaut le coup"-- it's worth it.
