The end of 10 years

Sitting at the airport waiting for my flight it seems incredible that I have finished 10 years in Zambia.
    10 years of serious travel to see family and friends.

There have been hard times, the death of a friend or child in my care, illness, overwhelming frustrations and feelings of inadequacy.

In the last 48 hours a few very difficult things have happened that we cant explain or understand, various phrases have been going through my head. God is working his purpose out. Through the rise and fall He is God above it all, You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they put their trust you.

Lets be honest, If I had known 10 years from now where I would be and what I would be doing I would have never got on the plane for 1 year in 2009. 
But God knew. He had a plan.
As I leave I have handed in all of my documents to apply for residency. It is up to the immigration department to decide if I can stay here. I have never had a problem with a work permit before and pray that by the time I come back it is approved.

We don’t know what can change or happen even within a few hours but how comforting to know I don’t need to worry about it too much because God had it under control.
