#8days

Good morning!!

I am spending this weekend house sitting for some of my co-workers from AMJ. There home is so beautiful and I am so thankful to have been asked to take care of their sweet home, cats and plants while they enjoy a vacation in of all places…Bradenton, my home. 🙂

Anyways, I’m really blessed to have this weekend to just rest, spend sometime with the creator of all things beautiful and mark things of my to-do list while enjoying the pool and sunshine. What a beautiful and peaceful way to spend my last weekend in Lakeland before heading to Africa.

As many of you now, we made the deadlines! Together, with each supporter and interceder were able to make it and the Lord through each person has provided more than I could have ever imagined. The provision that came through blows me away. Thank you so much to each person who has supported me in prayer and financially. Thank you for being obedient to Christ, thank you for loving me, thank you for your generosity and most of all thank you for believing that people need to be reached and met with the love of Christ.

It is really hitting me, I will be leaving for Zambia in 8 days. I am so excited to be apart of what the Lord is doing in this Country. The Lord has really been teaching me about how I can be effective in ministry in this Country and specifically how I can love the Zambian people. I am so thankful for such an amazing team of people to do ministry with. I am just so excited, I really don’t know how to put it into words how blessed I feel each and every day. Through these past few weeks the Lord has been constantly showing me how HE has it, I am in the palm of His hand and He is proud of me. I love knowing that I am safe and that I can trust him. There is so much freedom that comes from knowing God is trust worthy and He is faithful. His faithfulness gets me every time, His blessings and His presence.

Well I’ll leave you with that for now, I love you all so much 🙂

“What is the secret to …

“What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.”
Amy Carmichael

Amy Carmichael was a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur. She served in India for fifty-five years without furlough and never married. 

Rock of Ages.

“Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;

Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law’s demands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
these for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone

Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die”

home away from home.

Picking my favorite blog out of all my peers was a simple and easy choice. My first pick was my lovely lil roomie, Sera Manubens. Sera and I met last semester through a mutual friend and began eating lunch together every now and then and also worked on our practicum hours together. Towards the end of the semester she asked me if I would like to move into a Buttercup together and after some prayer and talking to my parents, I said YES! Best decision ever! I love love love the relationships I built with my beautiful friends I lived with first semester but was really excited to continue growing in relationships with more amazing girls on the Southeastern Campus. Hoorah for friendships!

First of all, the house of women that I get to walk out life with on a daily basis is amazing. The Lord knew exactly what He was doing when He put us all together. Rachel Hill has such a zeal for the things on the heart of God this it is contagious. Kelsey Leu is our lil traveling honey bee, always looking for the next adventure or thing to try, I love that about her! Carey Wessel is passionate and sassy, no one says it like it is better than her, and then there is my lil roomie, Sera Manubens. Living out life with this women is one of my very favorite things about this semester. I am constantly challenged and loved by her on a daily basis. Even though I get to hear about her passions whenever we sit and have convos over coffee and I get to watch her pursue the Lord it is so fun reading about her heart via her blog. Her heart is shown so clearly through the things she writes about. From reading the tales about the adoption of her 2 sisters to being informed on the purpose and plans behind Hoola for Happiness and talking about Kony 2012. If you also want to be challenged by a women that lives her life fully surrendered to the Lord and the calling He has placed on her life, please read her blog at, seravirginia.wordpress.com. You will not be disappointed.

Another lil Update on Zambia

As of today I officially have my ticket purchased for Zambia and here it is…

I am beyond excited for what the Lord is going to do on this trip. Since last semester my team and I have been meeting once a week. At last nights meeting we had the chance to share our hearts with one another in smaller groups and I am so excited to work alongside such passionate students. The women and men that God puts beside you in a team is vital to how effective your ministry will be and I am confident that this group of people have been put together for a powerful purpose. Thank you all so much for continuing to follow up on me. Since my last news letter was sent out, more funding for the trip has come through. I am know in need of only $1,525 left to make the next deadline on April 20th. Please pray about donating to my trip here. Thank you for all your support. https://www.seu.edu/forms/giving.php
