#31 Life in Afghanistan :: Wrap-Up

Wow! Can you believe it? It’s day 31! Yes, we are a day late… but still we made it! Together, we made it, I’m overwhelmed that we’re finally here. It will be strange to not write each day, it will be strange to write on other topics again.I hope you will stick with me though, I have loved interacting with you all so much.

We’ve looked at education, poverty levels, work days, culture, prejudices, war, development, and many other things. It’s been important to shout out the good stories, it’s been lovely to write out the honest stories, it’s been an honor to introduce you to different people, and it’s been humbling to know you praying for those individuals and for the country. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I sit here today and I pray that you will not forget. That you will remember the good happening in Afghanistan and you will praise God for it, that you will remember how Afghans are people like you and I who just want to live life and you will pray for peace for forgiveness and for healing, that you will remember individuals and you will pray for their situations, that you will remember, when you hear negativity on the news, that the picture is much bigger than that. I pray you will remember that Afghanistan is so much bigger, so much deeper, so much more varied, so much more beautiful than the headlines would have you believe.

Then there is one more thing, because I pray you will not forget, that you will continue to pray and remember these people, I have some exciting news for you. There are still so many untold stories, so many of the stories I’ve shared are unfinished, there are new stories being heard and created day after day; and so for you my friends, I will be blogging on Afghanistan every Wednesday! I will continue to share their stories, I will continue to give you a view of everyday life there. Keep coming back, keep reading, keep sharing with others, keep seeing the real picture.

Thanks for showing up here day after day… I think I might take a day or two off now, to try and remember how to write on other topics!
