Yes, I did in fact miss one week but that just means we get a two for one this week! Reflecting on God’s goodness from March 8 back to February 23, there is quite a bit to say. I’m currently in Český Těšín, a city in the Czech Republic. I’m staying with a few other JV missionaries during my time here and it’s been sweet to be a part of their community. I’ll be here for the next couple of weeks for a trial period in a new role with an international focus. I’m so excited about this door God is opening and it’s been a journey trusting Him in the process. It’s amazing looking back at the way He’s weaved my story even over the last few years and how this is now His perfect timing that He’s inviting me into something to use me and glorify Himself.
Two weeks ago I spent the week watching Phoebe and Jadon while Ben and Sarah were at JV Marriage Retreat. I love their kids more than I could say so it was honestly a joy watching them while Ben and Sarah got to invest in their marriage and rest. Spending the week with their kiddos gave me a whole new level of respect for parents…now I understand why they never sleep!
On Sunday, I took three trains (one from Usti to Prague, one from Prague to Ostrava, one from Ostrava to Cesky Tesin) and made it here! I arrived, Kata and I talked for quite awhile, and then we made ramen with Fanny, Jenny and Landon. So fun. Cesky Tesin actually borders Poland so you can walk right into Poland within 10 minutes. I was in the office Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and it was so fun to be a part of the team. Friday I went to Vitkovice and took some time to be creative, take photos and reflect. This morning we rested and Fanny made koren pancakes…so fun!
