|Aloha friends and family! We have almost hit our two-week mark, and wow a lot has been going on. Before we came out here, and even when we first started praying over this new venture, we knew that God had something big in mind. Since we landed that thought has been confirmed a million times over. Everything from the people we have met, connections that have been made, and the ways he is utilizing our gifts continue to blow our minds and bring us so much excitement as we look towards this year. Tyler has hit the ground running and has brought that “let’s do this” energy to everything he’s doing, whereas I have taken a slower and more relaxed approach to my new home. I have heard the word from the Lord that this is the time for me to “Be Still” before him and to “Rest” in his presence before jumping into anything, and even though I’m still getting used to taking things slower and not having a million things to do, I am remembering to lean into Him and ask before I move. It’s both a beautiful and terrifying thing being still before the Lord. I have recognized the fact that back at home I did a lot of going through the motions and kept myself busy in order to feel purpose. The Lord is completely stripping me of that here and it’s the scariest feeling not having things figured out.
