Saying goodbye.

On Thursday morning I left Beautiful Gate. I left the 63 amazing kids who have my heart. I left the 45 staff who have become friends and who I’ve served alongside for two years. And I left the people who have become like family to me. To say it was hard would be an understatement.
On Wednesday was my farewell. This was when I got to say a few words to the staff and volunteers of bg and where they got to say a few things to me. It was a wonderful ceremony and I felt very loved.
Later that afternoon I spent some time playing with the kids at playgroup. Then I went to each house to hug and love all the kids.
That night all the volunteers of bg and Kim gathered for dinner and some worship time. It was beautiful. And it was during worship where some of what was happening started to hit me. I was leaving my kids. I may not see some of them again. I’m heading to the unknown.
I then finished packing and went to sleep for a couple hours before getting up and going to hug all the children and staff before leaving,
To say it was hard would be an understatement. To say it will be easy to deal with saying goodbye to them would be inaccurate. I miss my kids. I miss Lesotho. But I’m having fun in Germany with a friend and I’m looking forward to what is ahead.
Pictures from all the above events will be posted at a later time. Thanks for the prayers and please continue praying as I make this transition.
