It is hard to believe that we are now at the close of these amazing travels, the close of this incredible chapter of our lives. A huge thought to process after such incredible existence packed into these past 8 months of life.

It feels like a piece of our hearts have been left in each country we have had the joy of serving in...Everyone of them a dear memory, holding it's own abundance of wonderful highlights that have shaped our lives & blessed us far beyond the magnitude of significance.
The friends we have made - the people we have met - the sights we have seen - the cultures we have experienced - the cuisine that we have sampled - the adventures we have undertaken - the encounters we have had - the challenges we have faced - the growth that has shaped us as we have been stretched far beyond the zone of comfort.
It has certainly been a monumental experience. Life-changing.

It is so beautiful to be able to look back over this time & see how much God has grown in and through us - our lives a testimony to his incredible grace.
The beautiful way in which He continues to grow us in our marriage. . .
Experiencing the incredible wonders of His clear direction & guidance. . . 
A greater, growing passion stirring inside us for all that is Him. . .
And a driving desire to serve Him, with an intensity in our hearts for the nations.


The next chapter of our lives begins mid February as we begin our Discipleship Training School (DTS) with YWAM - in Paparoa, New Zealand.
DTS is a five month, hands-on Christian training program with a 12 week lecture phase followed by 8 weeks of outreach - with this particular school being focused on young couples

As well as laying a good basis for life, from here doors open up for many more opportunities for serving with YWAM - including staff positions and other YWAM training programs.
 
It has been so incredibly amazing to see how God has lead us to this point over the past months, confirming beyond doubt that this is where our next chapter is to be written ...And yet once again still holding with it an element of the daunting, as we continue to learn to trust Him more for our future and our finances.

We are both sad to see the end of this season - but this next episode holds an excited anticipation
for all that God is leading us in, as He gives more clarity to the direction He is calling us to serve. . .
