The last and only time I was in Africa was 1992. I spent almost 6 months interning with a missionary family, Bill and Kathy Kieselhorst, and their three boys in Nigeria. It was an incredible experience and confirmed that I would be involved in missions, in some capacity, for the rest of my life.
Almost 10 years later, I’m on my way to Uganda to visit our missionaries! Missionaries are my favorite people group:) I can say that, now that I’m not one of them. What I love about missionaries is the way they approach life. They are risk takers, often on the fringe, sold out to a cause, and a bit on the rebellious side. They have the gift of faith and can see, and often do see, the impossible made possible by God’s power and grace.
So you could say, “I am a bit excited about spending two weeks with them.”
Thanks for praying for me and my family. I will be visiting Brent and Virginia Earwicker, Seth Sokoloff, and Bob and Carol Higgins.
