2 days. I'm leaving in 2 days!! I'm just getting butterflies saying that. Wow. So much craziness. My head is going a million miles an hour trying to remember all of the stuff I still need to get, but I have most everything packed.
God is so good. Isn't He? I'm finding myself thanking Him over and over and over again. And then some more. He is the reason I'm doing this. He gave me this passion for His glory and I am the luckiest girl ever. I mean, really. He could've given me the passion for accounting. Or working at a daycare. Or being a trash man. But no, I got marine frickin biology. How awesome is that??
I know you're laughing at me; it's whatever. Anyways, in short I'm just joyful. Please pray for the opportunities I will get down there to make new intentional relationships. There will be people there from all over the United States. This will be my mission field.
Also, please pray for me to stay focused on why I am there. I worship the Creator, not the creation. Creation is just the reflection of its Maker. I don't want to get caught up in things and not praise Him for all He has made.
"The heavens were made by the word of The Lord, and all the stars, by the breath of His mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into a heap; He puts the depths into storehouses. Let the whole earth tremble before The Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it came into being; He commanded, and it came into existence." Psalm 33:6-9
