Everything will change. A Ministry of WorldVenture.
You all are about to start one of the greatest adventures of your life BUT most of your expectations about it will not be true. One of the only things I can say with confidence is that your expectations will change very quickly. What are you holding on to for this year? Start praying about that now and ask God to prepare you for what HE has for you.
Maybe you guys can start sharing some of those things here. Start praying for each-other.
Mimi and I may have some leadership roles but time has taught us a few things about expectations. We try to make those "wants" for joining Journey Corps be "desires" rather than expectations. Expectations assume that someone or something else needs to fulfill your needs or that someone or something fails you. Desires on the other hand don't assume there will be fulfillment. I know this might sound like a twist of words but it's not. It really makes a difference. We don't know what to expect when we get to Journey Corps. So why set ourselves up for a fall. There are some things we "desire" to see or have happen. But we can't know if they will happen. If they do we'll be excited. If they don't...well they just don't. You might say a "desire" is an "expectation" held loosely. Regardless of how you want to say it expect as little as possible and be excited when the unforeseen blessings pour in. Blessings!
