I sat down this weekend to spend some time preparing my heart for this trip to Liberia. And I kind of just blanked. I have experiences to pull from, but I’ve heard many times, ‘Africa is different than anything else.’
So I tweeted (the logical thing to do): ‘How does one go about preparing her heart for Africa?’
I got three replies… Two saying, ‘You can’t.’ And one saying, ‘By introducing it to the idea that it may be lost while you are there. It’s the easiest thing, to lose your heart to Africa.’
Ah, yes, okay.
Will you pray for our team as we travel? Pray for safety, health, group dynamics, lasting images in our minds, discernment as to the next steps to help the people we will meet. Pray for an utter reliance on God.
Thanks so much.
