That which is outside the doors

Today is our travel day.  We are crossing the Atlantic to re-colonize America.

In this season of our journey, our family has talked often about what it means to follow God’s call.  One lesson from this experience has been that God calls us to go to places (literally and figuratively) that we may have never imagined.  These places, and the people we meet along the way, teach us about ourselves and the world.  I think Gandalf and Frodo said it well:


Where might you be called to go, “out there”?  Answer His call because, when you do, you’ll never be the same.

  1. What an awesome experience your family has had!! My hat is definitely off to you for branching out and trusting God to guide you in your works and travels. May you always find your way with Gods’ help and your days be blessed. I have enjoyed the adventure with all of you. Thanks so much for sharing and hoping to keep in touch once you are settled back in the good old USA!! Martha Anne

  2. Welcome home. I have enjoyed the journey with all of you. Thanks for the time and effort with your daily blogs.
    I will miss Mr. Ray, and no doubt that he will miss all of you very much.
    God is good all of the time, and all of the time God is good. What a blessing all of you have been to everyone you met on the other side of the “big pond”.
    Cheers, you are back with us.

    • Hi Mrs. Sarah,
      It has been so wonderful to have you on this journey with us. We are ready to say our “hellos” again, but we were not ready to say all of those “goodbyes.” Look forward to saying “hello” to you again soon!
