So with that thought process in mind and sleep deprivation setting in (I have a hard time sleeping on planes) here is a sample of what's on the agenda in the country Georgia.
One of the primary reasons we are traveling to Georgia is to meet our teams and partners. It's these amazing people that deserve so much praise for their hard work and accomplishments. It is in these meetings that we hope to catch a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges ahead of us. I am so excited to be able to tour and meet our wonderful mothers and children who have been rescued with KERA Georgia. We are also planning a missions trip in 2015 and we will be working on the itinerary and logistics of this upcoming trip. Along with this, we will be doing outreach excursions into local villages and taking a trip to Batumi on the Black Sea to meet with some leaders who are interested in starting a transition home for aged out orphans and/or a shelter for abandoned mothers with children. We are planning to take in the sites and soak up the culture and history of this great country along the way. The one thing I have learned from past experiences is to leave my American agenda and timetable in America. The reality is anything can happen and we must be flexible to change as we go. I believe it is in this flexibility that God is allowed to tweak our plans for his better purposes. So here is to the journey that I expect will be an incredible experience and adventure. Well it's now about 16 more hours till touchdown in Tbilisi after our layover in Detroit Michigan. Next stop Amsterdam, Netherlands!
We can make our plans, but the lord determines our steps. (Proverbs 16:9 NLT)
