Heading back in

It’s 10.48pm. Tomorrow at 12pm we fly back into Kabul.

It has been a good, necessary break. I realised as we flew up from Nairobi and landed in Dubai, that I was feeling increasingly heavy about returning to Afghanistan.

I don’t think that’s a bad, nor an unusual thing. Most of our friends feel similarly. It is so tempting to lead a comfortable life if you can, and we certainly can, back in Australia or any many other countries. I had several people suggest we pack up and take jobs in Kenya, and wow, that would be really nice. Exotic, new, beautiful, a bit of hardship, but plenty of lovely compensations. To go back to Kabul  – it is not new, nor exciting. It is known and hard. 

But, we are going to do it. At least for the next period of time, however long that is.

  1. the places God takes us are better than any other we can imagine in the long run of our journeys – may He continue to lead and you endeaver to follow – God’s eyes are upon His Sparrows and keeping watch no matter what transpires
