If you receive our newsletter then you know our big news. We will be seeking a Stateside assignment with Wycliffe and not be returning to Cameroon.
Even before the decision was made that we would be staying in the USA, we were already living life with a foot in two worlds. We started preparing for our furlough about six months ago. I’m a planner and really enjoy making plans and am thrilled when the plans actually happen. We started making plans with buying airline tickets, scheduling a church camp, receiving dates of others vacation time and special dates to save, we started thinking about where will we live, where will the boys go to school, what home assignment will we have, etc… In preparing we start to put one foot in the USA, while our other foot is in Cameroon. We aren’t fully in either place and it’s stressful. It’s stressful to be questioning where we will live there, when we are trying to find people who will live in our house here or vehicle to drive or furnishings for living (beds to lay our heads down) or finances and the list goes on and on. We know we are to be fully present here, however, it’s difficult when we still need to be thinking about there too.
