“Whatever season we are in, whether it is in the leaving our homes to go abroad for the first time, sending loved ones out to the ends of the earth, or some other part of our faith walk, the sacrifice isn’t in the things, it is in our will,” shares Sarah.
“What they don’t know standing at the start of that escalator, is that once you get both feet on, you’re carried. That you don’t actually need all the answers, you just need to start the journey,” shared OMer Sarah. “I think stepping out into overseas work can be a bit like stepping onto an escalator for the first time. We talk a lot in the Faith about stepping out, but what does that mean? I guess it means going forward, not remaining in one place.”
“And yet, in this season of my life, I read [the Israelites] moans and I have compassion,” shared OMer Sarah. “Yes, being thousands of years removed from it, and knowing the whole story, we can look in disbelief. But in that moment–yes they had been freed from slavery–but they had also left their homes. They had been in a place where they had grown, where their parents had grown and died. Where they had roots.”
