Sorry for the break in writing. I've been emotionally and physically exhausted. To be honest, I still am. Life has been pretty crazy recently and I'm having difficulty processing. Tonight is no exception, unfortunately.
I spent the weekend attending cross-cultural training in Hamilton. This was a very neat and encouraging experience. Unfortunately, I ended up missing a birth I was supposed to attend. This is devastating. I'm still trying to deal with the ramifications of that. But on the bright side, we attended a Congolese church this morning. I grew up in a charismatic church, so I feel very much at home in this type of service. I also enjoyed seeing the bright outfits. How I wish I was black! Being in this very different service really ministered to my heart. I don't have the words to describe it right now, but I didn't want to leave. The fact that we were worshipping in French was also very special as I have been learning the language since I was six. Worshipping God in my second language was a new and special experience. :) I was very blessed to attend this lovely little church.
