Today was a watermark day for me… the Ten for Congo Team is all packed, and our first member is already in the air! Tomorrow I will board the plane holding my heart in my hands, with a deep sense of hope. As we depart, Lynne Hybels has encouraged me to write about this sense of hope… and today I was a guest writer on her blog. Lynne, ever the gracious friend and co-laborer, wrote this about the post:
When I first met Belinda Bauman I was shocked to learn that for eight years she and her husband had lived and served aboard a Mercy Ship and traveled the globe offering medical care to people who had no other medical option. I’d toured the Mercy Ship and knew it was the opposite of a luxury liner. It was a patched up old ship with a mission that demanded hard work and offered little in the way of perks. But Belinda isn’t after perks. It’s obvious that for her, a life worth living is one that puts her where the needs are greatest. I wasn’t surprised when Belinda was one of the first to join the Ten for Congo team.
