Tomorrow my preceptor (the midwife who is teaching me to be a midwife) will leave for the Christian Midwives Association annual conference. I cannot go because I have school responsibilities and will be leaving for Kenya the next week. This is the second year in a row I will be missing this conference.
I love the friends I meet at the CMI conference. My husband calls these ladies my church – they are the women whose hearts are so similar to mine. We feel the same call from God. We are able to encourage and support each other, and they always build my faith. I wish I were going to the conference. I wish I could listen to their stories and learn from their lives. But that is not where God has me right now.
My dear friends, I miss you. I hope it is within God’s plan for my life that next year I will see you all again at the the CMI conference.
