Wherever He leads I'll go

Here I sit…another night in a motel.  I’ve been to Oklahoma, Arkansas, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona and now New Mexico.  My last mission for the summer is complete and it’s a little bittersweet.  I’m anxious to get home and see all “my people” but I’ll miss the days on the road and the scenery.  More importantly, I’ll miss the children I am leaving behind.  Some I will see again…others I won’t.  My biggest concern is that I see them ALL again in heaven! That is my prayer. Look at these faces…

How can I help but miss them!?

So, what now?  I’m picking my Mama up in Denver on Wednesday and she and I are going to explore Colorado.  But while I am waiting I decided to see a little of New Mexico.  I lit out today for a trip to Angel Peak Recreation Area.  It is the Badlands of New Mexico.  Take a look…

 It’s the same concept as “Badlands National Park” in South Dakota but the colors aren’t quite as vivid. There’s a starkness about this place that makes it beautiful and eerie all at the same time.  I was all alone except for this little guy.

We had an agreement…he would be really still while I zoomed in on him to take his picture and when we were finished he wouldn’t come near me.  He stuck to his end of the deal!

While I was there the clouds began to roll in and I even got a little rain.

And don’t ask me how but I manage to find a grave everywhere I go!

The world was quiet here and I felt small in a place that was so vast.

 It’s as if God just let His imagination run wild in this place…

…creating beauty in the wild and dark…

 …and then throwing in a pop of color just to mix it all up!

I probably won’t do anymore site seeing here in New Mexico.  I’ll take the day off tomorrow to rest, balance my checkbook and get my things together.  Then I’ll head for Denver and another adventure…this time with my Mama!  I’ll be glad to see her.

In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers as we travel and head home and even more importantly, please pray for all those we came in contact with this summer…that they will all find Christ and lead others to Him as well.  I can only imagine what heaven will be like when we all get to see one another again!

Blessings to all of you and I’ll keep you posted on what comes next!

    I am very proud of you Terry as you search unendingly for God’s will in your life (Psalm 40:8). That is an astonishing trait I first discern in my getting to know you where you seem to communicate to all of us in your Sunday School class that you loved to do God’s will and you do it by keeping His teaching in your heart. You humble me how you effectively ignite your heart with felicity, by heeding the fire within, consumed with passion to do God’s will wherever His leads you. In David’s words, (Psalm 27:1), you listen clearly to the crystal voice of adventure call forth, God’s adventure for you, to go forward following God’s impulses for you to make a difference by pursuing His will leaving no time to dispute about His plans for you. Admirable, where too many folk seek instead the voice of safety over the voice of adventure. Therefore, you go forth (Psalm 32:8) knowing that God will guide you along the best pathway for your life all the while watching over you. You make so many others and me proud.

    Please keep me posted on your future missions so I can continue to help support you in those endeavors.

    Jerry Doyle
