Saturday we had a free day and spent part of it at the Colorado Springs Zoo, which is literally on a mountain side.
Walking the zoo with future missionaries is comical. As we perused with our small group with individuals heading to Africa, Asia and Europe, someone would identify where the animal was from and say, “Hey, this is going to be one of your animals!”
Not the safest overlook but really beautiful…
These three are a riot. Obviously only the parents thought sitting them on a statue was a good idea.
Emily is a vet tech, heading to Uganda and totally amazing/grossing us out by feeding the giraffe out of her mouth.
We are learning so much here, so quickly. It feels very deconstructing as we are taught in a way that changes our paradigms and the Holy Spirit has much room to convict our hearts. Friday and today’s sessions were on conflict styles and it was not without conflict. We have learned many hard lessons but am glad to learn it here in a safe place before alienating teammates on the field.
I love it here. It is not without challenge…like loads of it but God is good. Since you have been praying, our family has stayed healthy. Thank you for how you lift us up to the Father.
