On this day:
3 years ago: I had just gotten back from my missions trip to Mexico- and was getting ready to do a week of counseling at camp Maranatha.
2 years ago: It was day 26 on my trip to Papua New Guinea- I had 9 days left. Here is a prayer that I wrote in my journal:
“Father, I pray that in these last 9 days here in PNG, that I would truly focus my heart and mind on you. God, I know that there is so much for me to learn here still and I pray that my heart would be open and ready for that. Lord, I pray that you would show me clearly how I can use the things that I’ve learned here back at home. Help me God, as I go back to my family, friends and church- to be able to clearly communicate what you’re doing in my life- what you are teaching me, and my passion for you and for missions. God, I love you and I thank you that I can be here in PNG.”
1 year ago: I was beginning my first week of counseling at Camp Id-Ra-Ha-Je for middleschool camp. I had 7 girls in my cabin- and it was one of my favorite weeks of camp last summer. It was really a great experience to be at camp last summer.
And today: I worked all day at the hardware store….came home and made homemade pizza’s with my sisters!
And….this fall: I have been thinking and praying a lot about what to do this fall since I am done at Bible School and not planning to go to MTC as a student immediately. And- after some time, and talking with my family and stuff about it- I decided that this fall I’m going to go to MTC (the Missionary Training Center in Missouri) to help out in childcare. I am really excited about it, and I think that it will be a good opportunity to be around awesome people- to serve the families who are attending school so that the moms can be in class- and to just take some time out of school myself to really process things that I learned in Bible School, etc.
So, it will be exciting I think- I am looking forward to it!
God is so faithful- and SO GOOD! I hate it when I forget that.
