I have known for a long time that I am called into ministry. I didn’t know exactly what that looked like but that I knew it involved writing and ministering to young people, especially girls, in Kenya.
In November I found a ridiculously cheap flight for January 30th and I booked my one-way ticket! Thankfully I didn’t change my mind, and there was no flight cancellation, so I landed in Nairobi on Thursday, February 1, 2018.
I know that 2018 will be the year I experience the most joy I ever have. Not because only good things will happen this year. In fact, I think it might be the most trying year of my life. This year I will choose to be more intentional about finding joy in all things. Which is why my word for the year is a verb; “Rejoice”.
