I only have a few more days before the big departure. I have been so blessed already by all that has been given and done for me. I have been blessed by friends and coworkers that have given things that only God would know I want or need. I have been blessed with a father and mother that have provided for me so that I have this opportunity that otherwise I may not have had. I have been blessed with inlaws that are willing to give up their time to come down and help with my "life" here so that I don't have to worry about all that goes on the week I am not here, plus they have collected so much for me to take with me to give to the children there. I have been blessed with a husband that supports me through all of our ministry decisions and gets excited to hear about new endeavors, and he is just plain AWESOME and I love him so much. I have been blessed with children that voice to me how important I am to them and how much they will miss me, but how excited they are for me to go and do God's work. I am blessed to have the support of a work environment that allows me to take time off without question and know that I have a job to come back to.
I am blessed with so much and so unworthy of any of it. I am blessed to even have the skills that God has gifted me with to be able to do something like this. I could have messed up so much over the years, in the beginning of my adult life, with some of the decisions that I made, but God snatched me out of a firey pit and set me on solid ground.
Thank you to everyone that has been there for me with prayers, thoughts, monetary gifts, time, supplies, and anything else that I may be missing.
You will all be blessed for what you have done for me. For what you have done for me, you have done for the Father.
Have I said that enough? I don't think so.
Thank you Jesus for your love and mercy and forgiveness and life.
Thank you thank you thank you.
I leave on Saturday morning very very early. I've heard that we may have internet availability at one of the places we are staying at so if I get a chance I will blog while I'm there, but if not...I will definitely fill you all in when I get back.
