From the time we decided to move to Red Bird Mission a number of odd and adverse circumstances hit us. Some would say we were being tested. Some said it was the Devil trying to discourage us. Some thought we should rethink our decision and stay in Indiana. I think a series of natural events took place, one after another, but in such a way that they tested our resolve. I can honestly say, when the chips were down and the pressure built up, we never wavered….not from sheer resolve, but because we just felt/knew this was the direction to go and we wanted to do it! We couldn’t wait to get started. Perhaps the incidents provided a simple gut check. We still believe it was right and are confident in our choice to move. It was not easy, but it was right and good. An old gospel song says this: “God never makes you go against your will, he just makes you willing to go.” I would say not only willing, but ready and anxious to go. Anticipating and looking forward to going. One goes because staying put just isn’t an option anymore.
