“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
For example, while waiting for 'Osi's greencard his Dad flew us up to Alaska, so we can finish building his mountain cabin. In exchange he promised to help us build our own cabin in Tonga possibly next year. This sounded like a freezing, but great opportunity, so we flew up here this week.
Alaska is breathtaking! We’re livin’ in this ramshackle shack in the middle of the woods, with no plumbing, and its great! We’re on a rather large, yet scarcely populated island called Prince of Whales. Our neighbors are all old hunters, fishermen, loggers, and gypsies like us.
So everyday after working on the cabin we go visiting, and they teach us how to skin mountain goats and pick wild mushrooms. It looks like this winter we’ll be wearing homemade beaver shoes and canning everything. Sure didn’t see that coming last month. I guess this is just a reminder that God works in mysterious ways and its best to look for the blessings and adventure He has in all of it!
