There are many ways right now we feel life is full of uncertainty. When will the PhD thesis finally be submitted, when will we have raised all the support needed and have work permits to book our flights, will we be leaving England in January, February or later still.
However, there are also many ways in which the Lord is throwing things across our path to encourage us and build our confidence in him. The online security training from SIM has been scary, but helpful. The boys put on an impromptu play yesterday afternoon using the random Amharic words they now know.
And then there are the less well (humanly) timed, but equally valuable experiences. This morning as we started out our drive to head for church we realised we had a flat tyre. Better to learn how to do this for the first time on our drive rather than on an Ethiopian roadside drawing in spectators (is probably what the security training would recommend!)
