I am so blessed. God is faithful. He has done great things. He has taken me places and given me opportunities that I could have never imagined possible. I am amazed in all He has done in and through me this last year. (I think this post is like a month late in coming-better late than never!!)
A year ago, I had just found out that I had been accepted to volunteer at an orphanage in Uganda- thus beginning the extensive process of planning an international trip by myself (with the occasional help from my parents :)
I finished teaching my Pre K class in May, visited my brother in Wyoming in May and watched him graduate from Bible college.
June I turned 18 and two days later I boarded a plane headed for Africa!
June/July was spent hugging, holding and loving orphans!! Boy, were they cute!! :)
The best day last year was the day spent with my Compassion sponsor child- Kanwangi, his family and the Compassion staff. One of the best moments of my life.
An African safari on the Nile river exploring and admiring God's creation was amazing!
July- home back in the US after a crazy international flying nightmare.... long story. Was so glad to be greeted my family and embracing my dad as we both cried was a special moment. :)
August- a new school year of teaching Pre K. Adjustments back into the "American" routine. Enjoyed a wonderful visit from my brother!
September- started my last year of high school (bittersweet)
October- helped start up a teen moms MOPS group.
November/ December- enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing holiday season!
Even now as I type I am reminded of all the Lord has done!
I am so excited see what my next year will hold!
Lord-willing, I graduate high school in May!! Holla! :) and June starts a 10 week summer in Colorado at Ellerslie Leadership Training!
What else God will throw my way- I can't wait for!! :)
