Tiny Unexpected Moments

Just a quick update: Jennifer is having surgery today on her knee. Thankfully there was no muscle damage so the doctor will be doing an arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone chip. She really misses being able to take care of her kids at the after-school program where she works.

She shares her feelings about her injury and crutch use on her blog today: 
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Everything

I'm writing this from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. You all probably know this but I only just learned that it is the home of the University of Alabama. We drove around tonight looking at the campus and learning some of the history of the buildings. I love old buildings and T.J loves history so we really enjoyed our small tour. 

I'm here to meet with a mission's committee from a church. We are here because of a chance meeting on the shore of a lake in Zambia of all places. In the eight years we've been in Zambia we've only visited this lake once as a family. When we were there in July of last year for one night of camping we met a team of biologists. They had been studying clams (I believe) and were not even planning to stop at the lake but did at the last moment. We chatted for a few minutes with one of the biologists and from that chance meeting we now have a partnership with  his church. It's wonderful how God orchestrates meetings in unusual ways.

10 days until my flight to Zambia. Just over 11 until I hug my husband again. Squee!


  1. Wow!! How awesome is that! Hope the surgery goes well. Will keep her in prayer for healing!

  2. That Jennifer is a cute writer.

    Ever notice that certain people end up landing squarely on your path over and over again until you smack your head with your hand and say, "Oh, I get it, God! There's some greater purpose!"

  3. Praying for Jennifer to heal quickly.

    Love how God arranged your chance meeting!

    I bet you can't wait to get home.

    May the coming week be the most blessed ever!
