Again, I have to remind my little heart that God sees EVERY DETAIL of my life! I confess that my heart has been overwhelmed by all the details that are in front of me with this HUGE transition, BUT I will remember that God is INVOLVED! I am not alone in this process! My faith is being tested again...in 4 days I will be paying my first sum of tuition money and I just found out that a check can not be found which puts me $1,000 behind! Pray that this gets worked out in 4 days! I need a miracle! He has backed me up and never has once failed me...I trust Him! I have been spending time with my family in Oregon and it has been very enjoyable. We are about to go camping and then I will head up to Portland for my last few days in the States. I am looking forward to a time of spiritual refreshing as I spend my last few days with the Quints. Living out of suitcases is not easy and I am ready to get settled in to a home and have a regular schedule. :) I look forward to meeting all the new people that God will be putting in my life. I believe that He has some awesome friendships ahead of me. Thank you for your prayers they mean a lot to me.

The Lord graced my heart as I left Kansas City on Wednesday morning. It was extremely sad :(, but I am excited about this adventure that I am going on. I love my friends in Kansas City SO deeply! I made it to California and I am looking forward to spending time with my friends and my family for these last 3 weeks. I pray that there would be divine appointments and that this would be a time of refreshing for my heart and everyone I am around. I will be driving up to Portland on August 2nd and staying for a couple days with the Quints...they bless me greatly! August 5-8th I will have orientation with the school and then on the 8th we leave the country. I am taking it one day at a time and continuing to ask God to give me courage in my inner man to take this leap of faith! I actually still need $3,000 by August 1st, so if anyone wants to give you can just write a check out to the Malachi Network and mail it to PO Box 35712, Kansas City, MO 64134 (on a separate note indicate it's for me) They will then direct deposit the money into my bank account! :) The Lord has made a way thus far so I believe He will get me there! Sometimes I find my heart getting weary at trusting Him, BUT He has never failed me, so that gives me strength. Thank you to everyone who loves me and supports me...it means more to me then you know. I will do my best to keep this blog updated and I will post pictures as soon as I get some good ones. Thanks for following me and going with me on this journey!

The time has come for me to leave the place of comfort and run with Jesus! I will be leaving Kansas City in 4 days! I am seriously grieving this season change, but excited about what lies ahead. My heart loves so deeply and the people that have been in my life for the past 7 years mean so much to me. I know its not the end of relationships and friendships, but it is an end to a beautiful season. My journey in the Lord has grown so much and I know I will never be the same person. What has taken place in my heart over the past 7 years are critical for this next adventure. My faith is about to be tested and will I believe that His banner over my life is truly LOVE? Will I be confident that walking with Jesus on the water will be better then being in the boat without Him? These questions fill my mind, but deep within my spirit I know the answer is a LOUD YES! I have to daily declare that I TRUST MY GOOD SHEPHERD! He is faithful to me and has NEVER let me down. He is making a way when there seems to be no way...Oh how I love HIM! It is time for love to be awakened in my heart and it is the LORD disturbing me! He wants my heart mature in love and taking this leap of faith really will be the test! There is such an excitement in my heart, but I honestly think that moving to the Philippines is going to be one of the hardest decisions I have had to make. If you think of me pray that I would continue to have courage in my heart to trust Him with all my life!
