Swinging a New Direction...

Enjoying a warmer winter day with my friend, Sherry

After years of praying and training and trusting the Lord to direct my steps, as of February 16, I am an official member of New Tribes Mission!

Perhaps I should back up just a tad… Things have changed a lot for me since returning to the NTM training center in Missouri. As you all know, I came back to study linguistics. After a couple of weeks, I was really struggling, and it became clear that I don't have a high aptitude for linguistics. After praying and seeking counsel, I withdrew from the program.

So what's next? In talking with the staff here, they asked me to consider serving as the director's administrative assistant. After more prayer and counsel :), I decided to become a member of New Tribes Mission and commit to serving here at the training center through May. I am praying about the future--whether God would have me serve here long term or if He has something else.

I am taking a short trip to California this month. And, Lord willing, I will return there in the summer and do some traveling--sharing what the Lord is doing in me and through NTM. I look forward to seeing many of you then!!
