My favorite part about Facebook is how easy it has made the task of keeping up with people. Those who use it at least. I love, love, love looking at pictures from "our" team in Senegal. I can't get enough. I just love it. I love missionaries in general, but I especially love a certain 7 missionaries in Kebemer, Senegal :) Joe and Cara just had their ngente, or baby-naming ceremony, for little Oliver Rufus. The pictures were lovely and everyone looked amazing.
Somedays though, it's just as painful as it is enjoyable to cruise through the images. Most days I would say that's still the case actually. But I can't NOT look. I love to see what's going on with them. I love to see everything about their lives. A year ago, it was going to be us sitting there celebrating with them. So maybe I torture myself by pouring over the pictures, but I can't stop. I am so thankful that God continues to work healing in our hearts. While I still ache today, I know that one day I won't. And I rejoice in that hope. I hurt, but I count it all joy as I face this circumstance.
So congratulations Herzbergs! We love you, we love Oliver and we can't wait to see you this summer!
