I did a lot of traveling in the month of September:
|Me and a friend drove to Lawrence to see a good friend, help her unpack, and have |
an awesome time of encouraging each other.
It was a blast getting to know the kids and leaders better and seeing some of the kids really
consider going to a Christian college after they graduate and get excited about making Godly changes.
I have been so challenged by those who are so quick to do what God lays on their hearts and I hope that the same can be said of me.
I can tell you that the longer I'm here and am getting more involved in things and getting to know people better, the more difficult it is thinking about leaving, BUT at the same time I am so anxious to be back there and dive into the ministries in Nigeria. I'm glad that my heart can be in more than one place.
I am currently at 52% of my monthly goal, 71% if I include one-time gifts. I am so grateful! I am so close to my goal and it is only possible because of you and I do not take that for granted.
Thank you for your part in making an eternal difference!
So, estimated time of departure? I had originally wanted to be back by the end of this year, but, everything makes more sense to go back in Feb. The Starlings(founders/directors of APOH) will be in the states participating in a missions conference and it makes more sense to return when they do and that will give me more time to raise support. Plus, I can't say I won't be glad to be able to work with the youth group and build more relationships with my church family until then as well as spend the holidays with my family. So, February is going to be perfect! I'm talking to my travel agent right now so hopefully I will be purchasing a ticket soon!
- Relationship building with the kids in the youth group and in my church as a whole
- That I could find a vehicle to use from Dec-Feb
- I'm going to be starting the visa process soon so prayers that it will be approved with no problems
- That my walk with Christ will continue to grow and that my trust in Him won't waver
- That I would be able to raise the rest of my support and raise up some prayer warriors
Please email or message me how I can be praying for you and if I can do anything to help you! I want to be a blessing to you too!
