Stepping into the Darkness

"You must learn to walk to the edge of the light, and then a few steps into the darkness, then the light will appear and show you the way before you."

My heart's in Oregon

"Shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. . . . Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. . . . Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your Eternal King!  And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness.  Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy! And let the sun, moon, and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy! And let the eternal creations declare his name forever and ever!  And again I say, how glorious is the voice we hear from heaven, proclaiming in our ears, glory, and salvation, and honor, and immortality, and eternal life; kingdoms, principalities and powers!"

As we begin this last week of our mission, I am looking toward the future - wondering what is in store for us now?  I don't know what it looks like exactly, we know what we want and what we are looking for.  We also know that we want to continue to be of service.  I am also rejoicing and looking for more reasons to rejoice.  And there are many!   We have had a wonderful experience here in Oregon.   As I read the above scripture I could picture so many of the beautiful places we have seen since being here, and I could imagine the elements rejoicing.

We have been richly blessed by our associations with so many wonderful people.  Our mission has been a glorious experience, one we are most grateful for.  We have loved serving in the Oregon Eugene Mission.  A piece of our hearts will forever be in Oregon.
