I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord.
This morning I emailed my London sponsors with a proposal and a couple of questions. This marks the first time I communicated directly with Selena and Suzanne: the first impression, so to speak. This first bit of my personality, albeit small and formal, allows them to start formulating what they think of me. Certainly Professor Trimbur talked with them about me, but now they really heare my “voice” for the first time.
It also means that, having contacted them, this project will really truly happen. Despite all the work I put in, all the money we paid, still in some sense I don’t believe it will actually happen. But on May 13th at 7 pm a 777 will take off with me on board and land 7 hours (+/-) in London’s Heathrow airport. So now I have to really believe it. Emailing my Commonside Community Development Trust (what a name! Like a hippopotamus in ponderousness) sponsors simply impresses that reality more deeply, I suppose.
I wonder when our tiny London group will meet? It might be nice to recognize our group members before we get to the project site. Hmmm. Should I take action on suggesting we meet some time?
