Reality 4


So reality is setting in. I’m leaving…

This clicked when was thinking about Judah, my 4-month old nephew. When I was a teenager, I always dreamed of rising up my nephew. I loved kids, so I knew I would love spending time with my future nephew. And now that dream came true, and what am I doing? I’m leaving.

I’m leaving my friends and family. Everyone has been non-stop encouraging me while I’ve been here in the states. The hours of conversations I’ve had, the opportunities have been incredible! Well, the opportunities will come in Perú as I continue to speak more Spanish, and Spanish scares me! I’m serious, it freaks me out. It’s going to take a miracle for me to speak Spanish fluently, so when I do…start glorifying and praising God, because it will ONLY be because of His grace and mercy.
I’m leaving English.
I’m leaving my job. How am I doing to support myself? By depending on Jesus and the Body of Christ…you.
I’m leaving my culture…my home.

I’m leaving my comfortability. We are all different, so how can you leave your comfortability?

    Dude. I’m really proud of you. Don’t forget to take AS MANY people as you can along on this journey. You will need them, and they will need you (read: Keep in touch! Ask for prayer! Let us know how we can support you!) Thank you for being willing, my friend. It is a rare and very needed thing.

    so glad that you are going….you have an amazing heart. I know it’s hard, I’ve been there, but God has had huge plans for you Brent….HUGE! Just think of where He has taken you in His name over these past two years. Keep the conversation going with all of us back in North America…we are praying…you won’t be alone.

    Brent, it is not so bad to learn Spanish!! in fact it is easier than English! a lot easier,.. trust me. Also I know you will learn it really fast, you have a personal motive….maybe two..
    You will embrace the Peruvian culture with no problem as other Americans and Europeans before you.
    I will give you some address in LIma if for any reason you need to stop by in Lima or stay there for awhile.

    I hope to see you soon, sorry I did not have a chance to say hi to you last Sunday, talk to you soon.
