Bitter Sweet

It is a bitter sweet moment as we sit here in the airport.  We are all happy to go home to Canada but sad to be leaving behind the volumes and volumes of work that is still to be done in this beautiful country.  I am reminded of a quote as I leave, "Two things that pierce a persons heart are beauty and affliction."  This is definitly a country that has the extremes of both of those.

With one final devotion this morning that spoke to each and everyone of us, we leave this place knowing that God can take what we have done and multiply it.  We leave knowing that this is not where it stops.  When you allow God to use you, He can use you anywhere.  There is brokeness and poverty everywhere, some materialistic and some spiritual.  We can be used by God no matter where we are.  

Thank you to all who have prayed and supported us on this amazing journey.  See you all soon!  Sorry no final photo, the WI-FI isn't cooperating.
