Bon Voyage

I had a blast celebrating my golden birthday (turning 24 on the 24th) this past weekend with lots of dear friends. I also was glad to see so many people because I leave at 4 am May 22nd for Guam where I meet the USNS Mercy ship. I fly from SLC to LAX to Hawaii to Guam! I have been frantically trying to pull all the last minute details together for the trip, which has been fun and stressful! I finally bought a camelbak backpack, which I have been eyeing enviously for years when my fellow hikers have had ones. Now I am the proud owner one!
It still amazes me that I am going on this trip, project, ADVENTURE! I was thinking about it today and how the timing of everything has just worked out perfectly. Even though I was distraught in the beginning of the year over things not working out as planned, they have all seem to fallen into place so that I am able to go on this project. It has definitely been a lesson to me of trusting in the Lord's timing. I know that now I need to lose myself in His work as I go on this project.

Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life, must be willing to lose it for my sake; and whosoever will be willing to lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

I will try to keep everyone updated through this blog as much as possible. Please pray for the whole project that we will be able to be effective and be able to help in the best way possible those we will be serving. Thanks!
