Darling... I know that when we leave here, we'll be leaving a part of your heart.
I know that you have poured sweat, blood & tears into this place. I know that you have taken other's problems as your own. I know you have been Jesus to the people you meet.
Cariño, I know that you struggle with the thought of leaving all that you have invested behind. I know that you ask God each day that these people you hold close to your heart will not be forgotten.
Baby, I know that in many communities--you feel like you are just now getting through. You are just starting to see tender fruit. You are just beginning to advance. The idea of leaving must be overwhelming.
Precioso, I know you must wonder if it was wrong of us to come. If we shouldn't have started a work... if we can't stay around to see it blossom.
But, dear husband... Please think of if we had not come.
Think of the hearts that would still be in darkness. The lives still in bitter bondage. The sick still looking for remedy.
Think of the baby believers whose new birth you personally had a part in bringing about.
Think of the godly example you have left in every village you have visited.
My love, I think it was worth the cost. And I know that God can make what will be lacking when you leave and turn it into an abundant harvest.
