A lot has happened in the last year and I have a lot to let all of you know about.
First off, I promised I would discuss a few of the signs that came up that confirmed I was supposed to go. The biggest one was that my aunt had a dream that Satan would attack me and try to get me to feel like I shouldn't be going on this trip. She had a last name of someone that the devil would use to try to change my mind. As soon as she woke up from the dream, she prayed and then texted me what her dream had been about so I could be prepared. Now, you should know that this is a very unusual occurrence for my aunt. She's never had something like this happened to her ever before. So when I received the text, I was instantly on alert. Then, that evening I was discussing with one of the pastors at my church and he told me some information of things that were happening. One of the families involved had the last name my aunt had given me THAT morning! To say that I received confirmation at that point is an understatement. From now on, anytime I have doubts creep in about whether I should go or not, I just remember my aunt's dream and my confidence in my task returns.
Since I last posted, I have filled out my application, turned it in and gotten confirmation that I will be going. At this point, it appears that Tanzania could possibly by my destination. I would be working with missionary kids and teaching them as well as working with the missionary team already in place.
This gets me excited, nervous, impatient, a whole gamut of emotions. But, I am ready to get started in the next step of the process and know for sure where I'm going and what I'll be doing. So, please be in prayer for me and for this opportunity to spread God's word and work with people dedicated to bringing Him to people who have never learned about Him. I will keep you updated on my journey as I get really going on this new path. I hope you are blessed even a little with my journey as I'm sure I will be over and abundantly blessed by it myself.
