Ok, so I got the clear for my ear. I had surgery on my ear drum on December 28th, and I'm healing. The doctor said I would be fine! HURRAY.

Now, I'm reading two books to prepare me for the trip. I'm getting very excited as the day I leave rapidly approaches.

I'm definately going to Kenya.

IT'S OFFICIAL!!! became official today. I have 7 weeks to prepare for a life changing, mind boggling, spirit altering, adventure. WOW is God so much bigger than me!

So, the approximate leave date is March 4th. The need: $3000, by then; and $2000 spread throughout the next 3 months. I will be returning around the 12th of July.

Today, in the meeting, there was quite a bit of confidence restored. There are great plans for me, while I'm there, and community being built. I'm stoked!

In preparation, I am reading two books, and meeting with pastors weekly. Thank you for your love and interest. I would ask, now, for your prayers of preparation for the best experience of my life.

The Beginning

I began this blog as a step to keep people posted on my trip to Kenya. I'm not very smooth with this whole "blog"thing. Well, I'm not to Kenya yet and there is still learning! The trip becomes official this week, and then the "getting ready" process begins!!!

If you want to start praying, here is what is needed: 1. the funds. Oh goodness there is a lot of money to be raised in a short amount of time. 2. Preparation: not just physically, but spiritually, mentally, & emotionally. 3. My family: None of us have been apart from each other this long, and with Sarah's birthday coming up and her year anniversary of going to Jesus, this could be a rough transition.

Thank you all so much for your love, support, and prayers. I'll keep you "posted" on all events of Kenya!!! God is doing a big work, and I'm pumped.
