#VivaLondon Updates – When the Homesickness Rears its Ugly Head

| Posted by Harlan

It’s been a little over a month since we last updated everyone on what’s been happening here for us in the UK. It’s been a completely life-changing and perspective shifting experience for us, and it’s a challenge to really capture everything. That said, we don’t want to leave anyone in the dark, and we definitely want people to share in our experience and learn from it. Who knows, maybe you’re next to step out into the unknown and see what God does!

Anytime you step out of your comfort zone and stretch your limits, you invite the spirit of God to mold and shape you in ways you never imagined. And that is exactly what has happened.

We’ve arrived at a state of reinvention…and it’s a very good place to be.

It’s taken me longer to write a new post this time around, and I’m struggling to come up with words to describe why. I suppose there’s a bit of settling that has occurred over the last few weeks, that has taken us from the daily excitement of new places, new people, and new experiences, into what a day to day life looks like for us here. Also, there is a bit of repetitiveness I’d like to avoid – constantly sharing (or perhaps oversharing) the pendulum swings and heart tugs can get a bit boring. Nonetheless, I think it’s really about that reinvention.
