No Longer a Visitor

DSC00061

Walking through the doors of New Tribes Mission’s headquarters, I headed to the front desk to sign in. It was a strange feeling to be signing in like a stranger at a place that felt so much like home. But it hadn’t been home for over six years, and to the woman behind the desk I was a stranger and a visitor.

My day was filled with meetings and filling out paperwork. Each meeting added confirmation in my heart that this was where God would have me to be. Back in missions. Back to the same mission where Matt and I served for many years—yet in a new capacity.ย 

Being that God has given me a love of writing, it wasn’t a surprise whenย He touched my heart to explore the possibilities of joining the Communications team at NTM. Having recently lost my husband to cancer, I labored over when the timing would be right to proceed. I asked God to make it clear.

In the meantime, unbeknownst to me, the Director of Communications was praying about when it would be appropriate to write and let me know that if I was interested in writing for NTM, that they would love to have me consider that. He wanted it to be God’s timing—not his.

God answered both our prayers. The letter was written, I responded, and God is in the process of putting the finishing touches on the timing of His perfect plan.

I smiled as I walked out the doors at the end of the day, knowing that the next time I walked through those doors, I would no longer be a visitor.
