Remembering Hurricane Katrina

Time is still defined in my mind by markers like "before the storm" and "after the storm." I guess there are moments in everyone's life that really define who they are and what they are all about. Before the storm I was different.

I think Africa is going to be another one of those defining moments in my life. I am expecting to be different when I return. I am expecting to say "before Africa" and "after Africa." I don't know why these two very different events are entwined in my mind, but I can't seem to think about one without thinking of the other.

Maybe it is because my heart breaks for both. One was my home and maybe the other one will be my home. I don't know where God is going to take me but wherever He leads I will follow.

I have decided to follow Jesus

No turning back, no turning back

Though none go with me, I still will follow

No turning back, no turning back

The Cross before me, the world behind me

No turning back, no turning back

Swaziland, Africa

New Orleans, Louisiana

It just confirms your calling. Things like this make me know that I can't NOT go.

I love you Heather. You have a heart after God.
