It has been two weeks since I left the US for language school in Switzerland. It has been an adjustment, but a good one. Language school is intense, and French is not as easy as Spanish, but I am always excited to be able to learn how to communicate in new ways!! The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful woman, Monika, who has opened her home to me. I am also taken care of through a church here in Neuchâtel, where everyone has been very helpful and mindful of the fact that I only know 2 weeks worth of French!
The picture above was taken from the balcony of my apartment this past Sunday morning. As I looked over the lake that had disappeared under the fog, it felt as though the houses were built in the clouds. For a moment, I felt as though I had a small glimpse of heaven, as I imagined golden streets and endless days without darkness. That Sunday also happen to be a yearly event where several protestant churches come together for a church service. Naturally, the service was in French. I couldn't help but think about how one day, all believers will be united together; every tribe, tongue, and nation worshipping the Lord. It was a great day of looking ahead to a day when this world will pass away and a new will come: no tears, no darkness, no death. Until that day, may we faithfully serve Him and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel!
Once again, I thank everyone who has been lifting me up in prayer and following my journey.
Grâce et Paix
