I hope you are enjoying the beautiful spring weather as it gets warmer and flowers begin to bloom! The last few weeks have been a complete whirlwind as I make the transition and adjust to life back in the US but God has been so faithful to walk beside me in the process. It took a few weeks for me to settle in to the normal day-to-day life of being home and away from the hot weather but after a week or two, I was able to jump right back in! The last 2 months have been full of rest, spending time with friends and sharing about my time in Haiti.
The second Sunday after coming back from Haiti, I was able to share about my experience in Haiti with my church congregation and it was such a blessing to be able to be able to talk about the things I experienced with people who have been so faithful to send and support me on my journey. I’ve also be blessed with opportunities to speak to our college campus ministry as well as the junior high youth, encouraging them to get involved in missions and step out in faith to take the Gospel to the nations. No matter how many places I travel to or how many times I speak about God’s heart for the world, my faith is constantly stirred and I fall more deeply in love with God.
At the beginning of last month, I was also able to help kick off missions season at Bethel and hold our annual interest meeting for our upcoming summer trips. We will be sending teams to Baja, Mexico and Santa Cruz, Bolivia and I am so excited to see all of the people that God is bringing to together to go to the nations together. It has been an incredible honor and blessing to work with my church the last 4 years as we have seen countless people get engaged in missions and I am so glad to be able to be part of it one more year as I prepare to move to Haiti.
These next 2 months will be spent traveling, spending time with friends and family and raising support as I get ready to leave on May 23rd. Please be praying for an abundance of grace in these final months, that I would have his peace that passes all understanding as I say goodbye and end an incredible chapter in my life.
Thank you so much for your faithfulness in walking beside me these last several years in ministry as we have seen people sent to the nations and lives impacted with the gospel. None of this is possible without your partnership and prayers and I am overwhelmed with gratitude at having such an incredible team beside me in this journey!
*Pray for favor as I continue to raise funds.
*Pray for grace to fully engage in my time here while I prepare to leave again for Haiti.
