It had been forever since I have been on here and I want to make that a new change for my life. It is time to get back into the swing of things. I realized I did terrible at keeping up to date on what was happening with my mission trip to Honduras and wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that prayed and supported financial towards our trip, it was amazing. God did some pretty amazing work while we were down there. This was the school that we got to visit everyday while we were there.
I am extremely excited to announce as well that I have been given the opportunity to return back to Honduras in the summer of 2014! This fall I started my first semester at William Jessup University as a psychology major. Not only has God blessed me with an amazing group of friends and community here at school, but has put it on the hearts to go to Honduras and serve. When I first heard about all the mission trips the school was having, I had put it out of sight out of mind. I didn't think I was ready to go and serve again, there was so much I needed to do and get down. However, like the saying goes "if you want to make God laugh, show him your plans." On the day before the applications were due for the summer mission trips, we had a missions fair at school and as my friend and I were walking around we stopped off at the Honduras table and it was there God showed me what he had in store for me this summer. Turns out the city that I was in this summer, Siguatepeque, is the same city they are planning on going this upcoming summer. Not only that, but one of the things I have always told myself that I will do one day will be to go and work in an orphanage, and what do we plan to do? Work with the kids in an Orphanage. My heart sank. I went back to the dorm that night and started the application. I needed to have 2 letters of recommendation by the next day and that was when I was really not starting to believe I was meant to go this time, but God led me to the right people and I got the letters in and the application in not only on time, but early. The next step was an interview process with the team leaders. I went to my interview and came back feeling pretty good about it, the leaders and I connected really well and I left with a big smile, so excited to see the outcome. Well, a couple weeks went by and it was time to hear back...
I am stoked to be able to go back and serve the kingdom of God. As of right now I do not know too much about this trip however what I do know, is that we are looking at about 2-3 weeks in Honduras with a team of 14! The cost of the trip is still being figured out, so as of right now, pray, pray, pray. Our team is in constant need of prayer for preparation and for the future of this trip as well as for the people of Honduras. As soon as I find out everything, I will be sending out some support letters about helping with the funds and prayer support, so for those of you thinking about financial support, be praying about it. I would absolutely love to talk more about the trips (past and present), feel free to contact me! Can't wait to continue about what has been happening and how God is moving.
