Bridget Howard

“As I begin 2018, I feel very much like [I am] training my eyes on a distant spot – my future. This should be my last year on-field before I take home assignment and then retire from active service. But when do I leave Rwanda? At the end of the year when it’s likely to be cold and drear in an English winter? Or do I wait until my visa expires early 2019 when it will be springtime? Who will replace me as a teacher for the English classes at NCM? Who will replace me as AIM Unit leader? What about the AIM Unit? Packing up the house, terminating employees’ contracts? Where will I live? What will I do? Experience has taught me that I can’t sit in some safe place and work it out on paper; I have to walk it out day by day trusting that ‘he who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or image’ and who ‘works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose’ will guide my steps and meet my needs. Thank you for journeying with me in 2018 and praying with me to know the good, perfect, acceptable will of God.”
