Many of you know that Lettting Go Love started as a way to encourage individuals in long distance dating or courtship relationships. Well, now life is changing a little bit (well actually quite a bit) for us.
We have said our goodbyes to my family and now we are about to embark upon a different kind of letting go love. We are having to physically let go of loved ones to go on the mission field.
I know, I know, you may not have seen that announcement coming, but there it is.
We will be doing ministry in another location, other than the one we used to call home. And it’s going to be tough, but it’s so worth it if one person who otherwise may never have had access to the gospel of Jesus Christ comes into a saving knowledge of who God is and how they can be in a right relationship with God.
Now…we are having to let go of loved ones, which is really difficult. It is sad that I can’t see my nieces and nephews grow up, it’s hard that I won’t be with my biological family for holidays, and it’s really difficult that I won’t be around anything that reminds me of my birth culture. I’m already realizing new things about myself every day. So this honestly is a journey we’ll embark on together.
I left my mom’s crying arms, and said goodbye to her, my dad, my siblings, my friends and everything I’ve known. This is a different type of letting go, but nonetheless it is letting go love…I hope we can learn from each other, enjoy, and take it day by day together!
I love you, and God loves you so much more!
