So this week I had to say goodbye to the wonderful Suzie! (the Suzuki)

It's definitely one of those mile markers that makes this impending transition real! It makes me aware of the time I have left here and wether I've done enough! I wanted to take the car for one last zip around the whole country (surprisingly it's not at all doable), but it did make me panic that I don't have enough time to do everything that I need/want to before I fly out.

This time in Central Asia has been incredible, and I sometimes barely believe I got this chance to be here. It has become home, so of course I am sad that I'm headed out, even for such a wonderful reason.

I'm wrestling with the fear of not doing a good job of leaving well versus trusting God's plan. I don't want to be so obsessed with fearing doing a bad job that I'm not concentrating on actually being here!

Please do pray for me as I continue to say goodbye that I'm present and attentive when I'm with people even with all the distractions of transitioning!

Have a great day wherever you are in the world!
