EP 030: Riding the Rollercoaster of Marriage and Ministry

There is nothing more exciting than a day at a theme park. The rides, the shows, the food. Its all just so exciting, but it's also a lot of waiting. In her Bible Study, Melissa Spolestra says "Following God sometimes feels like a day at a theme park. It has some exciting ups, some scary downs, and a lot of waiting in between." This week Dusty and Elizabeth discuss how they feel this sentence describes life in ministry and in marriage, especially in a replant/revitalization situation. They talk about some of the highs, lows, and waiting times they have experienced and how they managed to keep working in the waiting season. 


Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and join us as we discuss living through the highs, living through the lows, and working in the seasons of waiting.
