I almost wrote this post a bunch of times…and just never did because I just didn’t have the words.
Most of you who have followed my blog for a while know that we were once very connected with Grassroots Heroes International. Zambia is where Greg’s heart was first moved to the plight of the orphan. What first led him to be open to adoption.
He came home and we prayed and dreamt with 2 other couples….Grassroots Heroes International began.
Fast forward to last year and we felt God saying that He had a new thing. That we needed to step back from being in leadership with GHI. This was very hard. I felt like we were giving up a child that we had helped to birth. Greg kept telling me it was time. I kept saying ‘wait’. We finally had a discussion and agreed that it was time to step back. Let others come in while we moved on. Greg resigned our positions while I was in Ethiopia picking up Teshale. I think he knew he had to do it while I was gone! :)
(Point of note..we still LOVE Grassroots Heroes and still sponsor that precious child that stole our hearts)
For the next few months we focused on our family and bonding and attaching with Teshale..but wondering…
What is next?
What is the new thing?
Things would come through and I would wonder if it was the new thing…
Was it Ethiopia? (where our hearts are forever bound to) but God didn’t lead us there..
Something came across our email a couple of weeks ago. And I heard His voice.
This is it. This is the new thing.
I will share more tomorrow!
