The Pilgrimage Begins

Written By: Mindy - Sep• 04•12


In the words of Mark Twain…      
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Our journey has begun! We have thrown off the bow lines of security and sailed away from the safe harbor of predictability and have caught the trade winds of adventure once again and have landed in Switzerland where Marty and I met and fell in love. It is here that our lives were transformed by our encounter with God. It is here where we spent months learning of His amazing ways. Our lives forever changed in Switzerland.

At home in the Swiss Alps
And now we are back. Our days will be filled renewing friendships, making new ones and long meandering prayer walks in majestic mountains of Switzerland. We plan on video journaling the 6 Youth With A Mission outposts during the month of September and celebrating what God is doing through YWAM. We will post them as we complete them on this blog is you care to see.

We have anticipation – a joy set before us – a pilgrimage of seeking, celebrating and loving God on this journey.
Like the turtle – we are sticking out neck out and moving forward.
Our pace may have slowed down a bit with age but not our desire.
We know where the fruit is – out on the limb.
We know there are unknown surprises from our Father along the way so we are off to enjoy the treasure hunt!

Stay tuned – we’ll keep you updated on our journey.
