“Somebody special is looking for you. Somebody special is searching for you. Somebody special is waiting for you. Somebody special, special.”
– ‘Somebody Special’ by Rod Stewart
  As human beings, we have a desire to feel loved, wanted and needed – to feel special. We desire that special promotion or that special someone in our lives who make us feel like royalty. We each have such a man in our lives: Jesus Christ.

Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you get signs or general feelings of gratitude or growth, but more often than not, after doing all you can to love and guide them to conversion, you are left wondering if you helped them in any way to grow closer to Christ, let alone if they liked you or not.

Other people also told me to prepare for conflicts with my team, the pain of separation from family and friends since our SIM cards are turned in, but I was completely blindsided by the systematic heartbreak that takes place at least twice a month. No one prepared me for how hard it would be to say goodbye to host families that welcomed us into their homes.
