Counting Your Blessing

Hem Your BlessingsWow, just typing the title of this post makes my head spin. The shear anticipation of where to begin is enough to make me rethink the whole thing.  Count my blessing; yeah this might take a while. But for your sakes I will plod along and just maybe you will also be reminded of just how blessed you are too.

I’ll try to make this short, sweet, and to the point.  Here we go!

This has been a crazy few weeks and a very telling new year. In the few short weeks since this year has begun I have learned some things about myself that were quite frankly surprising. I think I experienced every kind of emotional upset, short of a nervous breakdown, in the last month or so. Being a missionary certainly comes with its ups and downs and I have been on the bottom side of that equation. Or at least that’s what I thought, but I’m getting a head of myself.

So it probably all started back in May, 2011 right around the time our (Oneal and I) visas were about to expire. In Ecuador there is no way to renew your Tourist visa after you have remained in Ecuador for a period of 9 months. The only options are to leave the country and come back after a year or apply for your permanent residency. We chose the latter, believing that the former was not an option since our work here in Ecuador had only just begun.

To make a long story short a friend of a friend who was visiting from the US referred us to his sister, who just happened to be best friends with an Immigration lawyer.  This was not a mere serendipitous circumstance; I know God had our backs.

It was not exactly smooth sailing from there on in — in fact it was anything but. (more…)
