More big news! If you've been following me via this blog and/or monthly newsletters, you know that I've been spending part of my time based outside of Zurich, Switzerland; part of my time based in Charleston, SC; and the rest of my time traveling for EE and/or SAMS. Not everyone realizes, but I do the ministry work from all of these locations. It just looks different depending on where I am!
I've been in the US since the second week of December and just purchased my flights to return March 1st. Rather than returning to the Zurich area, though, I'm headed to France! I'll continue my role as assistant/ELT member; but as you know, am taking more responsibility with the French materials and training. I've been recommended to be in France for this, and I agree this is a better location for this role...and my French which is a bit rusty.
I'm sad to leave those I got close to in Zurich and the independence and conveniences I had there, like the 10-minute bus ride to the airport from the apartment there, which in and of itself was a constant reminder of God's provision. I've learned from the past, though, that it's not worth holding onto blessings when we truly believe the Lord is calling us to move forward. I trust Him to continue to bless and provide as I head to France.
At this point, it's a "next step." I still don't have a Visa, so my stay will be under the 90 days I'm allowed. I expect the Lord to show the next step at the right time.
Speaking of next steps, I may be silent over the next couple of weeks as the next step I'll take here in the US is to head to Florida to take a week-long intensive Women's Development course. I have a few days left to prep and pack. :)
