Stretching and growth

By Becky Kay

In a previous blog I mentioned how I am leading a team to Nicaragua this summer. Before trips like I always find myself in anticipation for all that I will learn and grown in once I am abroad and dream about what to expect. Something that I’ve never really reflected about before is the preparation process of a trip. I think that I have discovered and learned more about myself and the humor of God in these past few weeks then I have sometimes on previous trips I have gone on.

One thing that I have found to be very important and necessary to missions and just life in general is the characteristic of adaptability. I have had so many curve balls thrown back and forth to me regarding this trip the past month that I’ve learned that the only thing I can do is roll with the punches and know that no matter what God is on the thrown and He is good.

That lesson has changed my total life perspective. For example my team has gone from six members, to two members, to four members, to three members, then back to two members and now at an official (for now) three members. As a team leader it has been a very stretching process and the strength to adapt easily is something I’ve grown very thankful for.
