A country God has imbedded into our hearts.
A country we love.
A country we Lord-willing will go back to someday.
Dan and I would both say it was a life-changing trip. It is hard to physically be back in the States when we feel our hearts are still in Belize. We have been overseas before on mission trips, but there was something about being able to speak the language of the people there. Belize’s national language is actually English, but we heard most of them spoke Creole. We thought Creole was a Spanish/French mix. In Belize, Creole just means broken English. So anytime a Belizean heard us speak English, it was English they spoke. It is on these type of trips that we are to take what God showed us in Belize and try to apply it here in the States. Some of the most tangible things, we have never thought of before. We are eager to see how God uses this trip and what we learned, for His glory alone.
This trip is going to take a few blog posts, so I am putting aside the weekly schedule of blogging. I am too eager to share about it!
Starting from the beginning. I read my last post and it was about the worry of the weather. The radar at 11:00pm Saturday night said it was supposed to get nasty at 3:00am. Dan and I decided to get up at 2am and left at 2:45. The whole drive up to Grand Rapids, we were waiting for it to get nasty. It ended up just raining the whole time. That means we got to the airport at 4:15am and our flight didn’t leave til 7:15am. If you’ve ever been to the GR airport, you know it only takes like 1/2 hour to get through everything. So Dan and I had plenty of time to just wait. Though, we were EXTREMELY thankful for good driving weather – we would’ve rather had good weather and wait, instead of ice and be tight on time. So we were definitely thankful!
