Thoughts from Starbucks

     As I sit in the Starbucks somewhere in Kansas City, slaving over my schoolwork, it is continually hitting me that I am going to Scotland. Every time a new wave of shock flows over me, I become so eager to just BE there already, and at the same time, I feel completely unprepared for what is ahead of me. Don't get me wrong, I will love it there and I'm sure that I will adjust just great, but there is just something in knowing that I am going to another country that always is catching me off-guard. A blessing though is that I am not sitting at this Starbucks alone. I'm with a group of fantastic human beings who are embarking on the same journey I am on with similar feelings. What a wonderful thing to know that I am not alone. God has continually provided for me thus far and is continuing to provide for me through placing these lovely people on my path. I am incredibly grateful for the new work that God is doing through all of us and the preparation He is doing to equip us for the journey ahead.

Eph 2:10 For we are what He has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.

What a journey

What a journey this has been! There has been tears and so many blessings; I can't hardly believe how close  I am to being in Ardrossan. Fundraising has definitely been an interesting endeavor considering I have never been good at it, but I have the best supporters in the world! Man, I have been blessed. Because of how awesome everyone has been, I only have about 3,000 dollars left before I am fully funded. How awesome it would be to be fully funded before I head out!

If you haven't given yet, please consider giving a one time donation or being a partner with me monthly.

Love you all!

First blog post!

Hi Friends,

Thanks for coming and checking out my blog. I have never done this before so it will be a learning experience for all of us as I figure out what I'm doing. I will be posting more once I am at Scotland. My first fundraiser is located under the Prayer Tree tab and there are full details there. I'm excited to be sharing this experience with all of you!!

Can't wait to be back where there are mountains!
