New Year, New Adventure--Same Ol' Me (and New Me)

I reflected a lot on moving to Africa in this post. It originally posted a couple of days ago on MomLifeToday--so I wanted to make sure to share it with you.

Crazy is...

This...made me laugh. Out loud. Let's just say that with less than three weeks before our family will be waking up in Africa, I resonate.

“I am on the board of a seminary where they have a psychiatric wing, and they wanted to send psychologists around the world to work with missionaries.  They were coming in telling us how they were going to spend millions of dollars to bring mental health to all of our missionaries. And I couldn’t hold in; I said, ‘No! Don’t do it! We don’t need healthy missionaries. We need missionaries who are delusional, who are out of their minds, who are insane.  There are two of them among ten million and they think they can change that whole city. You make them normal, healthy, sane and they’re going home to Kansas tomorrow.’” --Erwin McManus (swiped from my sister Kelli and her husband Stephen's blog)
