Almost There

   Tomorrow is the big day; in just about 12 hours, we will be on our way to Nicaragua. I am filled with mixed emotions on this last night home. I am excited and scared, joyous and unsure, so very ready and yet not nearly ready enough. This is such a big step for my life, and I feel so nervous. A small part of me wants to go back and undo all of this, yet, in the words of one of my favorite singers, Sara Groves, "The places that used to fit me cannot hold the things I've learned." I've learned too much, grown too much, changed too much, to back out now. I can't go back to who I was... and that's kinda scary. Anyhow, thank you all so much for all your love and support! I look forward to telling you all about my trip!

Good to Me

   God is constantly showing me just how good He is and today is no exception. With less than two days left until the team will be on a plane to Nicaragua... I got another check in the mail! Where I had been just on the mark previously, I am now $50 over!!! This is so amazing!!! Thank you, Lord!

Email Updates?

   In 3 days, I will be on my way to Nicaragua! While I am gone, I will not be able to give you updates of how we are doing... However, we will, as a team, be sending out updates (via email) periodically throughout our trip. If you want to be put on this list, please let me know (and get me your email) ASAP and I get it to the right person. And please remember to be praying!

And Repeat, And Repeat, And Repeat...

   So I know I said before that was my last post, but Mom got her wish, there's still more to tell. As the trip to Nicaragua is coming up in 8 days now (YIKES!), each member of the team has been asked to pick a Scripture verse to memorize in Spanish. I wanted to share mine (and its translation, of course) with you:
