Only 6 days until I leave for my first missions trip, headed to Guatemala, and my excitement level reaches new heights with each passing day! I'm so thankful that God has given me this opportunity to travel with some of my favorite people to a place where I know I'll see and experience things I never have before.
Several months ago, just before the new year began, I sat down with my Bible and journal, and I began to pray about some goals that I wanted God to help me attain in 2014. One of those goals was to go on my 1st missions trip, which has been a dream of mine for years now. At the time, I didn't really know where I would go and when, but God opened the door and by His grace I'm walking through it!
To some this whole endeavor may not seem very important, but to me this is a dream come true. And what better dreams could there be than the ones that bring glory to God and build up his kingdom? That is my desire and my purpose, to bring glory to Him.
As we prepare for our trip during this next week, please keep us in your prayers, especially us first-timers. Pray that God would do a work in us and through us while we are in Guatemala (and a safe journey!).
Until next time.
