Rachel on the balcony

I like this picture Amanda took of Rachel because it symbolizes so much of what our family's last six months have been like. Rachel is moving a handmade Liberian chair through a doorway, out of our seminary apartment onto the balcony porch.

Our family stepped out in obedience last summer and left the church I had pastored for 2 1/2 years and moved back to the seminary.

The high wall speaks of Safety for our family, and Wake Forest has again been a safe place for our family.

The plants and warm summer morning light speak of the healing and provision the Lord has had for us here since leaving Amis Chapel.

And it seems when we are intentional about being in the Light of His Presence that we still somehow carry a calling regarding Liberia. And glory crowns Rachel's hair as she goes forward.
