One of the hardest things about moving to a new community, to Wicklow, has been the lack of connection. We're not coming into Wicklow to pastor a church, there is no group of people who are loving on us and helping us find our way. I remember when we first arrived in each of our pastorates. It was such a joyous time!
Well we have arrived in Wicklow and other than the letting agent and the owners of our home, there are few people who know or even care that we've arrived. Yet here we are, and I might add we're excited to be here.
We believe this is exactly where we need to be and already we've met a few of our neighbors. We've visited with a few of them in their homes and shared tea and biscuits. Oh, what fun! We're just praying God will continue to open doors, making for us a way. This reminds me again of the wonderful words in Proverbs 3, words I first memorized as a child in a program called Caravans. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and He will direct your paths."
