     Hi there and welcome to my blog! On June 15th I will going on a life changing trip to Kitale, Kenya for two months. How nuts is that? Honestly I am nervous and excited to see what God has planned for me and this trip. I can not wait to create new relationships with all the people I will meet and get to spend sixty days with.
     A few months ago God put this trip on my heart. I was shocked at first, but He really spoke to my heart. I just knew it was the trip I had to venture on. I went straight to the post office. Normally a passport is supposed to arrive between four and six weeks, but I got my passport three weeks later. What a God thing! As a child, I grew up getting no shots whatsoever. Which means that I have to get a lot for this trip to Africa. So far I have recieved three, with a few more to go. Almost there. God has really been providing for me; thank you all for your financial support and prayers.
     Today I took in half the money for the trip to the church office. As I was driving, the idea of me really going to Africa hit me. And it hit me hard. It is really happening, which makes me so scared. All I can do is pray and tell myself that this is God's plan and that I know how wonderful of an experience it will be.
     Father God, please keep my spirits high. You know that I have never been away from my family for more than two weeks, fill my heart with your love and prepare me for this journey to Kitale, Kenya. And bless all those people who have supported me and for those who are currently. Their support is not all for me, but for who You have planned for me to come in contact with. Thank you, Amen.
