“I was on assignment in an Islamic country,” I told her, “and to say things hadn’t gone as planned would definitely be an understatement. To make matters even more difficult, in the midst of a very hostile environment, I had broken my leg and couldn’t leave the country. However, with the help of one of our allies, I was taken in by a Christian couple. During the months I lived with them, they so modeled a life of faith in front of me, I knew I wanted that same kind of life for myself.
“While that decision was momentous for me, what has been even more earth-shattering is the realization it was only the first step in a lifelong journey. Sometimes I feel like a child learning to walk. I keep stumbling all over the place. The first time I didn’t lose my temper, I was very proud of myself, but then I turned right around and exploded at someone. I haven’t figured out if my desire to serve the Lord can possibly be compatible with my career as an intelligence officer. But right now, I know for certain that’s what I’m supposed to be doing.”
