Transitions - mine and hers

Marla Fields on February 12, 2020

How much have I defined myself by my role as a missionary in Paraguay?  My challenge now is to focus on character instead of roles. Roles often change - no longer a missionary to a foreign field. But character traits carryover. Character must increase - that missionary to a foreign field role must decrease. "He must increase;  I must decrease." I am opening myself to be searched by God during this transition, so that I might grow through it, finish well, and ultimately hear the One who truly knows me say, "Well done."

New Beginnings

Marla Fields on December 18, 2019

It's hard to believe that I have neglected the website for so long! But I need to get back into life as we are now experiencing after life as I knew it for so many years. I miss our lives in Paraguay so much! I miss our brothers and sisters there. Transition to the USA and to a new ministry with the Open Door Baptist Missions has been hard, yet good at the same time. Hard because I realize how much of who I am is related to Paraguay and my life there. Forty years of friendships there compared to...
