Quietly Searching

Jessica was my first best friend. We became friends in fourth grade when she invited me to her birthday party. It was my first friends sleepover party. I matured in a lot of ways that year, and Jess was with me every step of the way. We became 3rd and 5th daughters to each others families. We stayed friends through elementary school, became bratty pre-teens through junior high, and gradually grew apart in the middle of high school. Eventually, Jess and I found different  desires in life. As we moved on into college and post-college our communication dwindled to the annual birthday card in the mail. However, her friendship was not something that quickly left me. As God would have it, we have become close friends again. Though 450 miles separate us geographically, there is not much on earth that can separate our memories, hurt feelings, first boyfriends, lame school dances, and a sense of belonging.

Recently her mom wrote a response to my going to The Gambia (have I mentioned Gambia yet?). In it she said, "I know you've been quietly searching your heart for what you feel God wants you to do." Thank you, Victoria. That's exactly what I've been doing. Now the time has come. Time to be faithful.
