Lately I have been looking back at life, and smiling. It is like pieces of the puzzle are finally fitting together.
I can remember all the way back to fifth or sixth grade and telling my mom that I might want to be a missionary, traveling the world, proclaiming God's truth. I remember her telling me that not everyone has to be a missionary to do God's work. After she said that I thought to myself, I know that, but for me.. Being over seas is where I belong. In tenth grade I surrendered to the ministry. It was real and true and beautiful. Now being a senior in high I prepare for a summer of excitement, adventure and most of all love.
My first trip will be, well that is actually a good question.. : ) I will be doing some inner city stuff in Texas on April 3- April 10 with my best friend, Rebecca Griggs. I cannot wait! I will get to spend a week with one of the coolest people I know, AND get to practice my español. I don't see how it could get much better than that.
Next on the list is Graduating! I feel like I am still a freshman in high school, minus the part about not being able to drive. : )
Then the summer begins. It will be filled with lots of laughs, memories, and of course the beach. Sand between your toes, the ocean in your ears, and a good book in your hand equals a pretty swanky combination if I do say so myself.
Then there is Cross Camp. The one week out of the year that I look forward to.. maybe a little too much.
Then Haiti! I cannot wait! I have a little boy the Jessica Williamson has signed me to. His name is Kuku, and I already love him. My heart is definitely in that country, and I haven't even been there yet. I am so excited to see how God is going to move through this trip and through these precious people that I have come to love so dearly without even meeting them. ^^That's KuKu, and yes he is playing with the paint. : ) You should see the video of him playing in the water completely naked. You can't help but smile.
