So, here’s a little snapshot of my life. Enjoy.
Yes, I’ve started playing A Link to the Past in Japanese for language practice (but more for fun).
I’m also searching out the depths of what it means to be in an awful situation and miserable, yet praising the Lord and in joy at the same time, so that those I am ministering to will see and give glory to God.
I just finished the book “Green Leaf in Drought Time,” reccomended for me by Scott Tirrell (thanks for the heads up on the book). It was about an OMF missionary couple and their infant daughter who were detained by communists for 3 years when trying to leave China in the early 50’s. They were basically stuck in a house, and the communist police did their best to cut off their money and starve them. Eventually, Chinese were forbidden to talk to them, the Christians were afraid to have anything to do with them, and there they were: isolated and in a terrible situation.
And yet they held a remarkable joy and peace about them. Would that I could obtain that at this time.
