winding down:


22 days left in Africa…..

I am feeling very reflective about things right now….and my time here.  Crazy how quickly it all seems to be coming to an end.  It is bittersweet for sure….thinking of all that I have learned and experienced here, and all the amazing people that I have met during my time here.  Saying goodbye to the kiddos makes me sad just thinking about it.
With so few days left….I feel like they will be full and busy.
My friend Katy left this past week, and Rose leaves this week- so time is running out for lots of us.

2 years ago around this time I was graduating from Bible School and was challenged by one of our teachers to finish well…….it’s always easy to start things, but finishing them is much harder and takes a lot more character.  So, I am challenged in that right now as well…..part of my heart feels so ready to move on to things back in America- but I know that I need to be present here and will trust God to be able to do that!

Lately I have loved the verse in Isaiah 25:1 that says:

“O lord, you are my God, I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago!”


Water balloons during PE……thanks for sending them Mom!


Learning about marsupials in animal science class for co-op…..I had the kids make really cute little kangaroos with joey’s!


Today in church we sung a song by Matt Redman that I really loved called “Never Once”….here are some lyrics from it:

Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us
Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us
Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say
Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Happy Sunday.
