Good news: the surgery went well and I am on my way to recovery! I am so grateful to all of you who prayed for me, thought of me, visited me, contacted me, sent me cards and flowers. The reality that I have a global community in Christ was so apparent through the diverse amount of support I received during this difficult time. Thank you.
My dear friends! I have some news and an urgent prayer request. I am in New York unexpectedly early to get surgery on my ankle, which appears to be in much worse condition than originally assumed. While the plan is to eventually move back to Texas, I will not be returning until after my recovery, which could take upwards of four months; nor will I continue my service with Saint Paul’s Outreach next Fall.
March flew by in a heartbeat and the end of the semester is right around the corner! Purified by Lent and the waves of life, SPO Texas entered this Easter Season with trumpet blasts (literally).
As I mentioned in my previous newsletter, life sent me a bit of a curve-ball a couple weeks ago. Long story short, a trampoline accident left me with a fractured ankle and I am now confined to crutches and an ankle boot.
Praying that this Christmas season brings you the joy and peace of Christ!
This past week I had the incredible privilege of welcoming my dearest big brother, Joe, into the great state of Texas. For eight wonderful days, he got to experience little bits of my life as a missionary: our rich communal life, Household, Formation, Lord’s Day, morning and night prayer.
Call me fickle, but it’s time. After much thought, I’ve decided to switch over from my email newsletters to a blog. This required learning how blogs work, which for some reason intimidated me so much that until now I never bothered to figure out how to even subscribe. If you’re like me (that girl who had so much resolve to keep up with her friends’ lives but not enough determination to find and click a “subscribe” button) fear not! If you were on my email list, I’ve taken the liberty of subscribing you to this blog.
For those of you who are new to my updates, you can view ones I’ve written over the past two years in the Past Newsletters tab. Happy reading!
