“I don’t believe it’s a small world. I say ‘Big world, Purposeful God!”
-Our Friend Al.
It was almost exactly a year ago I was eating soup at my Aunt’s kitchen table. It was a sunny afternoon, and I was living with them in my hometown, eating vegetarian, looking for a job and enjoying having friends again.
Across the table we visited with some family friends – a missionary couple home on furlough. My aunt and uncle lived in Asia for many years, so as I observed I heard many stories and comparisons of life overseas and life in Canada. I listened to tales of homeschooling, comments on culture-shock, evidence of hardships and blessings, stories of what God had done, and caught a glimpse of passion and vision for the future.
It was a good afternoon.
And now one year later,
I am across the world in another living room.
I often find myself eating soup across from that same couple,
collecting the stories for myself.
