Already missing these two. Love them, their hearts, and their passion for others. God is so good. 😩❤️✈️ Now it’s time to wait on our hour and a half delayed flight… Should’ve just stayed👌 View Larger

Guatemala

I’m about to head to Wesley to have a big sleepover with the other 15 people headed to Guatemala with me in the morning. Tallahassee to Miami and then Guat. From there we have a 4 hour bus ride to the village of Chontala where we are staying and working and loving on the people.
Unexpectedly, I’m nervous. For what? I can’t put my finger on it. Maybe because I’ll forget something. Maybe because it’s my first international mission trip. Maybe because I’m afraid I won’t jump into things right away and miss out. Maybe because I’m leading worship and really haven’t gotten the songs down pat yet. Maybe because car rides sometimes make me sick.
I am actually looking forward to the culture shock. I want to feel things and see things outside my everyday, busy, and sometimes apathetic life. I want to write every moment down and how it made me and others feel. I want to have meaningful conversations about God with members of my team and with the families.
We were told a few meetings ago that one of the young women lost both her parents at a young age. I really want her to know that she is not alone. That I have been there. That I have the same struggles. But do I? I don’t live in Guat. I haven’t experienced what she has. But I want God to work through that and use me to give her peace if she needs it. And maybe she will teach me something too. Just like everyone else will, I am confident of that.
I want to remember how I am feeling now when I get back in 9 days. What a beautiful week it will have been. And of course, it will go by too quickly. It always does.


Today I’m thankful for my family, the people in my life that have become like family, Pittsburgh visits, snow, my friends near and far, FSU Wesley, opportunities, music, the past, the present, a future to look forward to and a God that will always remind me how truly blessed I am, how thankful I should be all the time, and that I am good enough to live this good life. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! View Larger
