Getting ready!

I have been wondering why I am still here, and I now know why. Sometimes we get to see the reasoning of God's timing and sometimes we don't. I have been blessed to see why I am still here and working at the hospital up to this point. A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to a guy at work about Honduras, who I was never supposed to meet, as he was going to be the one to take my positon when I left, and began to realize that he is one of the reasons I am still here. There are many people that go in and out of our lives, some are in our lives for a long season and some for a short season. I began talking to him about Honduras and he asked me for more information, so I gave him one of my letters. He came to me a few days later and told me how my letter and my story had impacted his life and how God had used it to make him examine his own life. I am excited to see how God will continue to work in his life and bring him closer to Himself.

Within the last month, I have been able to share with the youth at my old church about what God has called me to-Honduras. I was able to share with the high school on a Wedensday night and had a wonderful response from them. I encouraged them to go on the mission trip that the church is taking this coming summer that will be overseas. By the end of the night, they had more people signed up than they had spots for. I also got to talk to the middle school during the sunday school hour and encourage them toward missions. I actually got an email from one of the middle schoolers last night that told me she wants updates on what I am doing down in Honduras.

Now, for the exciting news, I talked to the mission board yesterday and they have told me I can leave the first of the year. I will be looking for a plane ticket and making preparations to leave right after a friend's wedding January 9th. I will be sending out another letter soon to make people aware of when I am leaving.

  • Please pray for the rest of my support to come in before I leave in January.
  • Please pray also for one of the missionaries from the hospital that is back here in the states right now receiving treatment for cancer who longs to be back in the place that she calls home, Honduras.
