Once again winter stirred and like a bird I flew to warmer shores. I have been here on Big Island, Hawaii, for over a month now. It has been a season of flip-flops, flights, unpacking, new routine; new friends; new alarm-clock setting; new food; new accents, sand, sunsets, study, homework, lectures, sea breeze, hiking, acting and delving into the life-giving depths of the Bible. I remember being in an evening worship service in India over two years ago and hearing the speaker mention Hawaii. I asked God that if Hawaii would be a place He would take me to, that the speaker would mention the State three times. They did. Now that I'm here I get occasionally overwhelmed by God's faithfulness to me and how long ago He began preparing me to obey His lead.
