Today I started reading about the first Southern Baptist Missionary to live in Cambodia. The struggles and the hardships that he and his family faced scare me. Strangely, it scares me more to see people's pictures of their Cambodian friends. What if the people don't like me? What happens when I'm lonely and want to come home? Reading the book about the missionaries, actually calmed my fears of being lonely. People have done this before me, and God sustained them. I will be fine. Not to say that I won't be lonely, but I will survive the loneliness. When I understand that fact, I am finally able to be excited again. I'm going to serve God in Cambodia. That's exciting!
