I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you of the outpouring of support that you have shown me.  I am so blessed to be surrounded by family and friends who, though they may have some reservations, will still stand behind me as I prepare for this trip.

Those of you who know my parents can probably guess that they, more than anyone, had some reservations.  All valid, mind you.  I am just so blessed that they have continued to support me in this, and that as time goes on and more details are worked out, they are becoming more and more at ease, I think.  And though I know they will worry, as parents do, I know that they will not hold me back from such an amazing opportunity.  Thanks Mommy and Daddy :)

But more than anything, I owe all of my thanks to the Lord.  I have a feeling the coming months will be even more full of praise for Him than ever before.  I already see Him working and I am so aware that I could never, and would never, do this without His strength and His provision.  I don’t think there was ever a time I wanted to go to Africa in the past.  Going overseas to me was going to Italy, or something other country that seemed tourist-y and comfortable.  God has since given me a heart for missions.  This desire is not of myself but of Him and I’m so humbled by that.

I intended for this post to be much shorter…  Thank you all again!

Psalm 9:1-2
