Nonetheless, I sure am glad that there's a second portion to the verse from the book of Proverbs which entitles this post!:
Katie begins reading quickly and aloud through the letter to get to the portion that will state the fate of the trip. Soon, it comes: "... I have decided to allow this summer's trip to Ethiopia.."
We get to go! We get to go!!
Though we were exhausted from the wait, we knew now that there was hope again! The desire is still on course to be fulfilled. What now lays ahead of us is immense fundraising and preparation.
Life will bloom from the seeds of service and patient-care that this trip will plant in us. We are eager.
Roots of hope are reaching and establishing in us. We are filled with it.
