This summer, I will be helping to lead a group of university student to a vision trip of Cambodia. I will be showing them everything they can grasp in a week time while also hoping that the sights, smells, and sounds would ignite a passion for the Father's (already planted) calling for them in Cambodia.
I too was like them two years ago. I came to Cambodia without a care in the world and had another place burdening my heart. No matter what was shown to me or was told, I could of cared less about what the Father was doing in Cambodia. It's funny how things change. I am now living in Cambodia. Everyday is a daily struggle of whether ants have once again invaded my room or maybe today, the electricity decides it does not want to properly function.
As much as we try to convince and say all the right things, the Father's plans is something unpredictable.
The hardest part grasping is knowing that my life has forever changed after I made that first decision to listen to His call. If I were to ever move back to the States, I will never meet another person that understands what I've been through 100%. If I move to another Asian country, I will have to relearn cultural rules while also making sure not to impose ones I've slowly adapted in Cambodia.
The only constant stability for anyone on this earth is Him. If He has brought me all the way here, I am going to let Him tell me where His next step is with my life.
