This blog has been on a bit of a back burner over the course of the last year.
I was doing okay keeping up with it, but then Super Bowl 2013 happened and I just couldn't bring myself to follow through on the many posts I had hoped to write. I just kept feeling insecure and almost like a fake. So, I just stopped writing.
You see, I am not a missionary. I haven't ever really had the opportunity to
be one (I've tried and doors just slammed everywhere, THANK God!). I
have never met a trafficking victim in person, never met a child slave,
never been involved in rehab for survivors of trafficking or modern day
slavery. I didn't see extreme poverty close up until last year when we
went to meet our son in Haiti, but our adoption agency was so eager to
keep us safe that we weren't allowed to truly see it close up then
I just long to make a difference from where I am. And I believe that DFC is where God has put me to do that.
I'm feeling this longing to just be authentic. To express the mission and passion of DFC, even if though I'm not an authority, even if someone disagrees with what I write. I feel like I need to express these things about DFC and then you can make your own judgements on what you think of DFC and the matters I discuss with it.
That's what this blog is about to look like. I hope you'll stick with me, offer your thoughts and see where this takes us.
