Trip Update and Praise
My ticket is purchased and day after thanksgiving I will be leaving! God has blessed me so greatly these past few days, God has provided all of the necessary amount of money, I am leaving in about 3 months, I have a wonderful, supporting, encouraging and loving family and group of friends, and I have a God who will never leave me or forsake me... I pray that every word of my mouth would glorify Him, that every deed of my hands would speak of Him, and every though of my mind honor and adore Him. all glory to His name!
I am so excited, so blessed, and did I say I was SO excited? I have been dreaming of doing missions work from the time I was 7 years (or younger) I have had the desire to go to Ukraine for almost 2 years now, God has enabled me to pick up the language quickly and placed a love in my heart for Ukraine, He has placed people in my life, (such as Mrs. Heim whom we have not known very long and many others), a peace in my mom's heart to let me go, a feeling of excitement in me for even the before, dreaded plane ride (I was really afraid of it for a long while and He placed many verses in my way telling me not to fear because He is with me.)
In that day you will say: "Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
