Kerri is Home! Some will say that this is may not be 'home' to her anymore because so much of her heart is in Nicaragua. "Home is where the heart is!" is a quote that we all know and have heard many times. Does her heart yearn to be there? Yes, because when she is there she can call it home, she is 'Home'! God has given her people there to live life with and to work alongside in the ministry he has placed in her heart! To be a missionary you have to have people who send you, people that help fuel (through prayer, encouragement, support, love...) the heartbeat you have for the mission God has called you to! There are many here at 'home' that do this for her, that give her the love and support she needs. The people are what make it 'Home', Kerri knows that she will always have people here, her people! So, yes she is 'home' and yes she misses 'home'. We count it as a privileged to be a part of her 'Home' and to watch as she pursues what Christ has placed one her heart!
With that, will you pray for her with us? To have a heart in multiple places as it strives to do as God asks is an emotional task.
She has been home for a little over 3 weeks, she has shared some stories and lots of excitement about what God is doing in Nicaragua!
She was able to see so much of the ministry that Fox River has partnered with there. Many new places and of course those that were already firmly planted in her heart!
Her latest blog post is all about how she was able to share Christ's love to certain group of kiddos throughout her summer!
"There is no thing in this earth that is greater than love. Love that sits with kids in the dirt, love that lets them braid your hair (even though you hate it when people touch your hair), love that shows up, love that makes sounds and motions to try and communicate, love that holds on tight and never lets go, love that gave it all. This love is what they need. They need the love of Jesus. I am so blessed to have been able to be part of giving that love to them. "
