Nine months ago today was the very first Breathing for the Sake of the Gospel blog post.
Babies grow and develop for nine months in their mother's womb.
Symbolically, F.G. has been growing and developing for nine months in the womb of God's will for her life as she has served Him as a missionary in Africa.
After nine months, a baby is born. The baby bursts forth as a beautiful bundle of joy to be celebrated.
Additionally, a seed that is planted to grow and develop in the womb of the ground one day also bursts forth into a celebrated harvest of beautiful fruit.
