|A view of Gideon Theological College|
in Melut. We soaked up every tidbit of news and gazed longingly at every photo, remembering a life that seems a universe away and an eternity ago.
|GTC staff housing is now housing other relief workers who needed a place to call "base"|
|The rains have come so it is green again!|
|Isn't this a picture of peace and beauty? |
How can this be a place of war?!
|With the rains, comes the mud|

|To me this picture represents God holding Melut in His embrace|
|Boats are back up and running to and fro on the Nile River|

There is nothing wrong with the fact that it looks different this year. This is not where the Fader Five live this year. This is not where Isaac, Evan and Joshua play every day. Of course it wouldn't remain the same. But I guess this photo reminds me of the memories in that same spot. This photo reminds me that that life will never be the way it was. And that is OK. You know why?
GOD IS STILL THERE.
We are not. But He is.

|Seeing this bounty that is available now in Melut just blew me away!|
I know my thoughts and feelings have been all over the place in this blog post. I think the main point I want to get across is:
- God is so faithful.
- He is working in Melut.
- And we are thrilled and encouraged.
Do we know what 2015 holds for our family? Not yet.
Are we ready to make a decision? No. Not yet.
Are we at peace and confident that God has a beautiful plan for Gideon Theological College? YES!
For the Fader Five? YES!
Thank you for going on this journey with us. We would so appreciate your prayers for continued peace and stability not only in Melut but in the whole region and the whole country. And we would also covet your prayers for our family as we are homesick for Melut and as we wait on the Lord.
