Getting Ready to Get Ready to Leave

2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

     Thank you so much to everyone who has been oh so generous by supporting me!  These past two weeks have made me realize that God can and will provide.  A month and a half ago I was looking at less than $100 raised, a deadline of December 1st to have 75% of my total funds needed.  It was a God-sized amount and so I started praying really hard - and working really hard.  But now, Thanksgiving is this week and I am completely thankful that God has given me so much.  Not only has he provided the money, he also gave me some public speaking practice, crazy work experiences, and also life's everyday frustrations. Life is so not meant to be boring. :)

     My ticket is purchased.  I am really going! It'll take about 2 days to get there, so I'll be leaving January 8th, 2012 for Lomé, Togo and arriving the 9th late at night.  Then I'll leave Togo on June 11th.  Yes, that's a long time!  But I want to go and see where God's highway takes my lil beatup Nissan pickup.

I'll Bring Ya'll Up to Speed...

     The latest and greatest happenings in the Mercy Ships saga are awesome!  I have received almost 50% of my needed support which is such an answer to prayer! Thank you to everybody who has supported me financially.  The biggest thanks goes out to those of you who have been praying for me, I appreciate that so so much.  

     God has provided me with the opportunity to speak in my Sunday School class, at Bible Study tonight, and also a couple churches in the next few weeks.  I will be in Akeley this coming Sunday and in Kabekona the next.  I am not a fantastic speaker but I've been praying (and will keep praying) that God will give me the words and that I won't mess up too badly. 

Thank you again! God bless!
