Glad I Didn't Know
LaMoin was a young woman and a young missionary with three small children in Ethiopia. One day her husband returned from the government office and told her that (because of the impending war) the government had given them three days to leave the country. God already had spoken to Bill about going to Australia. They didn't know one person in that vast country, but LaMoin had no problem with deciding to follow her husband as he followed God. But be ready to leave in three days? What about visas? Where would they go in Australia? They had no money. How would they survive? They were facing their own "Red Sea," but God opened it for them, just as He did for Moses.
LaMoin found much more in Australia than kangaroos, koalas, and Aborigines. She was fumigated, swallowed flies, was threatened with death, almost lost her husband, and got her first and only traffic ticket. She experienced loneliness, sickness, and disabling depression that almost ended her life. By God's grace, she became a more effective Christian because of life-changing lessons learned through those bitter trials.
