All you need is Love.

GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS! ok now that I have your attention, IM GOING BACK TO HAITI! God is so faithful and oh so good! Ever since I left haiti, ever since that plane in Port-au-Prince took me back to America, I prayed SO hard, for God to allow me to be a part of His marvelous works in Haiti. There was no answer for a long time, there was so much uncertainty, going back to Haiti seemed nothing but a dream. However, I continued praying.

There was a time where I had to re-evaluate my heart, why Haiti? why do I want to go? Is it because I simply missed the kids? I didn't think that was a good enough reason. I am not a teacher, a nurse, a sunday school teacher...etc..none of those. I didn't have much to offer...or so I thought. I prayed. I wanted to go with a purpose, I wanted to go to glorify God. God in His amazing grace revealed to me that all I have to offer is LOVE. I didni't have to be good at something, nor be something, I just need to be God's instrument, I just need to LOVE. Love the people of Haiti.

Later on as I continued to pray, God again, revealed to me, that I need to show love not just to the people of Haiti, but here. Even though we American's have everything we can possibly imagine, we lack the most amazing thing and that is JESUS. At work, at school, at home, at the grocery store-SHOW LOVE. Always!

In January I pursued the dream of mine...I contact Child Hope, and after a few minor details...I AM GOING BACK TO HAITI! now I'm just wishing my life away. I absolutely can't wait to see what God does, and I can't wait to be God's insturment.

Also, one more exciting news. Who am I go with? MY BEST FRIEND. how cool is that? We are always together, we went to haiti together last year, and God put us together again. I am looking forward to spending 2 weeks with my best friend and seeing how the Lord will deepen our friendship. <3

I would appreciate your prayers!

Much LOVE and GRACE =)

I'm not proverbs thirty one

Have you ever read Proverbs 31? 

It describes a woman who is intimidating to me, yet I aspire to be. If you ever have time, read the chapter, if not, I'll break it down for you. In this chapter King Lemuel meaning "devoted to God" wrote a passage that was almost a perfect description of his mother, some say he was inspired by her wisdom. His mother, Bathsheba made her wisdom very evident when she was basically telling her son "not to fall into the trap of immorality, chasing after women will sap a king's strength. (Proverbs 31:3) I can only draw my own assumptions that Lemuel was inspired by that saying and wrote up a whole chapter based on what a woman of virtue should look like. I won't quote the chapter in this blog, although I must have read it three or four times tonight, and had it basically memorized at some point in high school, however I'll attempt to simplify with my such minuscule concoction of words.  

So, what is a Proverbs 31 woman?

and the dust on my feet

From LAX to Dubai to Entebbe- here walking around in my beloved red dirt Uganda. Nothing seemed real until that plane brought me to this country. The plane wheels hit the ground and the tears started to roll down my cheeks. 

For so long, I have been so angry at God for giving this love for the nations, and then not opening any doors. Only to realize, that I needed growth, I needed to turn to Him fully, only to understand that He needed me somewhere else at the time. As I looked out the window through my teary eyes, I heard Him say "See, I got you back here." I felt a sense of relief, I felt as if this was what I needed from Him, to finally feel Him. 

Stepping out of the plane, the instant smell of Uganda hit my senses and my heart began to race. Feeling all sorts of emotions, I took my first step onto Uganda. My heart was full with joy. 

Getting all thirty of our checked in bags was already a challenge, patience was much needed. Sweat dripping down my neck, hunger in my tummy, …

shattered pieces of my heart

"break my heart for what breaks yours.." 

A song we sing at church. Are we crazy to sing a song that literally asks God to break our hearts for what breaks His? 

I've been on a lot of trips before, visiting the poverty, seeing the starving eyes, and holding the sickest of babies. Each trip opens my eyes more and more, and breaks my heart even on a greater scale. 

Today was a hard day for me. So many times during the day I wanted to burst into tears, I felt helpless, I felt and overwhelming wave of so much heartbreak, I think I actually heard my heart shatter to pieces. 

During worship, having a baby tied to my back the Ugandan style, I stood in front of the crowd and watched these kids barefoot, dirty clothes, teared t-shirts jump up and down praising God. In my mind I think "what do you have to praise them for?" Then Janet's words resonated "If you're alive, that is a reason in itself to be praising God." I had tears rolling down my face as I clo…
