10 days

Wow. Praise the Lord for a great sophomore year! Up next: 6.5 weeks in the small hispanic country south of Mexico...


I am so excited for this trip. I am praying that the Lord would prepare me over these next few days for the ministry there that He has already ordained. Please pray with me, that I would be obedient to His Spirit. This time last year I was in Peru. The Lord sure has worked a lot of things out in my life differently than I had expected, but He is good. I'm praying that He'd continue to change me this summer, that I may look more like His Son. Looking forward to seeing that a year from now... Lord willing, of course. :)

Hopefully I will be keeping the blogging world updated while I am in Guatemala. If not, I will give a full detailed report upon my return. Here's a photo of the sweet kiddos I will be working with every day:

They warm my heart already, and I've yet to meet them. I pray that the Lord would use me in their lives to teach their sweet little souls about His Son. Please pray for these 8 children.

So, I've made it home (one of my favorite places in the whole world), and I am beginning to prepare to leave. However, there is MUCH to do before this trip:

- witness the marriage of Hannah Brown and Brian Crian :) :) :)
- watch Sydney and Sara graduate from OPHS!
- play tennis with Annie
- visiting with my sweet friends from Monroe
- see family at my cousin Zack's high school graduation in New Orleans
- celebrate Daniel's birthday
- spend time with the best mom in the world

I'm looking forward to this joyFULL week of preparation and spending time with the people I love. Thank you, Lord, for providing.

He does provide. And I am thankful and blessed. Another thing that He has blessed me with is the opportunity to have lived with 2 of my best friends in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD (not world wide web). I am sad that this season has to come to an end. I am SO grateful that I was able to live with these sweet sister-friends of mine, and I know the Lord has knit our hearts together. I will miss these girls over the summer, for sure. And then I will miss my sweet Annie as she goes to McNeese next year. But I pray that the Lord would bless her time there, too. :) Love you, Mary and Annie! SMTY BBY!!!

Ok... time for bed. :) Praying Psalm 67 tonight... May the nations praise You, Oh God.
