If I flee on morning wings, far across the gray sea...

With everything new comes loss. It is my privilege to be involved in an exciting project in Bolivia, for which I am thankful to God. But with that privilege comes the loss of a great job, separation from a special girl, great friends and colleagues and the absence of everything familiar except Him. Today I am excited about the unknown, but I am sure there will comes times of trials and frustrations. Times when loss is felt keenly. Despite and throughout those, it is my prayer that this page will be a documentation of His Power and Love and Presence in one life.

"If to heaven's heights I fly You are there beside me,
Or in death's dark shadow's lie, You are still close by me,
If I flee on morning wings, far across the gray sea,
Even there Your hand will lead, Your right hand will guide me."

Fernando Ortega (from Ps. 139)
