So close, yet so far away

Dear Friends and Family,         The trip is so soon! The 27th is approaching and my team and I are getting really anxious! We’ve been having constant meetings and so much preparation. We’ve been raising money and praise God with your help we are 100% financially supported! God has provided and praise Him! I just want to thank you for your prayers and financial support, it really made a difference. We’ve done “Helping Hand for Haiti” and that had two benefits:         First it was a good time of fellowship with one another. Our team bonded and definitely practiced team work. Secondly, it brought in a lot of support and we had fun doing all the projects…from pulling weeds, (and me getting really annoyed with the spiders, who knew…the dirt has A LOT of unusual insects =)) to cleaning out garages to doing simple task such as hanging fans and hooking up printers. All was for the glory of God and it helped us a lot. So you, yes YOU, had a huge part in this, by supporting our team! Thank YO…

Remember. Rejoice. March ahead.

For the past couple of days God's been putting something on my heart and its really inspiring. I've been listening to Flyleaf lately(if you guys don't know the band, check it out!) and Lacey Sturm (the lead singer) wrote a song called "Cassie" and its about Cassie Bernall who was shot for believing in God. That brought to mind Rachel Scott who was shot at the same school as Cassie for her faith, and that led me to thinking about all the other Christians in different countries or even here in the US, who are being persecuted daily for their belief in God. Christ did promise us that we will be persecuted "Then you will be arrested, persecuted and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers"-Matthew 24:9. But the apostle Paul says in Philippians 1:21 " For to me, to live is Christ, and to dies is gain"- Life is summed up in Jesus Christ, Christ is the reason for being. Paul got it right guys, lose you're life and…

Blessed

Haiti is coming up so quickly! 
I am thrilled and anxious and nervous and blessed and surprised that a person like me would have an amazing opportunity like this to go and be used by God in Haiti! Blows my mind away!
The devil definitely has been having fun with my weaknesses and my foggy mind, but God somehow is helping me fight, while I feel weak, I know He is Strong! Always!
I always have to remember that that things in life will barely ever go my way, God always reminds me through the scriptures that my ways isn't His best way!
God has been preparing my heart in huge ways, some days i don't even know what He's doing in me, but i know i gotta trust!
We are only 18 days away! The anticipation is killing me! God is teaching me a valuable lesson while Im waiting... patience and prayer.
So guys, remember....turn you're eyes upon Jesus! and don't give up.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be…
