pondering these things today..
:: will i ever not long for the things of home? will i come to the end of the road and truly feel as if the cost was worth it? oh, how i hope so.
:: what will it be like to care for two children? and later (please Lord!), more that two?
:: what is the role of church in the life of the believer? how do community, fellowship, evangelism, and the call to missions interact with one another?
:: will i be able to relate in the same way with japanese women that i do with those who speak my first language and grew up similarly to me?
:: is loneliness just part of the missionary life? must it be so? what good purposes could loneliness serve, should i allow it to?
