Today was my commissioning. Oh what a blessing! My close friends & family were there. It was such a good time of community and sharing. Through talking about Kenya, God continued to reveal to me His faithfulness and plan in me going. Nothing has ever been more confirmed than this.

TO THOSE OF YOU WHO CAME: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! It meant the world to me to see each & everyone of you there.

This week will hold planning, packing, and buying. OH my goodness. Thanks for your support, prayers, and love. I love you guys back!


ps - the picture is me in my new hat for Kenya!

its getting closer...

PRAISE THE GOOD LORD! I just got back from Seven Springs, PA! We planned, and followed through, with taking 248 high school students, and 40 adults. The outcome: 3 (that we know about) came to know Jesus, and we only had one broken arm! HURRAY. And yes, I went skiing. The boys made me go on a double black diamond, and DIDN'T tell me what we were approaching. No falls on that hill. God is good.

Anyway, I have one week left working at Grace Community Church; and then a week to pack; and then I'm gone. This is the beginning of a long adventure. Thanks for reading and keeping up with me.

Now...I'm off to rest. I am sick, from emceeing all weekend, and I got no sleep or rest.

COMMISSIONING: Feb. 26th, GCC, Rm. 111, 4:00 pm. Be there or be square.

My Flight...

Things are moving faster than ever! I got my shots last week and we're booking my flight for March 4th this week. God is SO amazing. I have half the funds, and that is why I get to book the flight this week!

I tried my first Kenyan Chai this afternoon. Good news: I LIKED IT. I was also watching T.D.Jakes yesterday on TV and apparently he comes over to Nairobi a couple times a year. I hope that he comes while I'm there. Now that would be a treat!

FYI: My commissioning is Feb. 26th, at 4:00pm, at Grace Community Church. If you could come out that would be great. Just to hang out with me, and hear what I'm doing. That would be fabulous. Thanks.

Thanks for everything, my dear supporters. I will keep you posted on the upcoming events.

Preparation & Confirmation

Confirmation has been happening. God is brining in funds, and has set my housing in place. I am living with a couple that lives a 5-10 minute walk from Mo (my boss). They sound amazing.

Some days I am nervous about the trip, but God gently reminds me of the call He has placed on my life. This is a time at which He has stripped me of responsibility and obviously no relationship to call my own. (ha ha) So in a sense I am care free, and I think that is precisely so that I could go to KENYA!!!

I am thrilled to go and excited that I get to share my travels with all of you faithful blog readers. If you have sent me funds, I can not thank you enough; if you have been praying for me my thanks extends to you as well. God is doing amazing things and I haven't even left.

What I'm working on now: learning some basic Swahili; finding insurance; and getting my necessary vaccinations.

I love you all and will be posting again soon as the departure day rapidly approaches!
