Also, this just in as of 9:00 this morning - I am going to Kenya in May! I still can't believe it. I am shocked. I originally wanted to go to Sierra Leone and had planned on that for several weeks, so when the trip was cancelled, I had a hard time. I was confused because I really felt like I was getting pulled to Africa, and so I just gave up on planning my nursing practicum for a while. Then last week, it just kind of happened! I was told that the six spots had been filled, and they were going to try and get me on the team. I had to wait all weekend (good thing I am getting real good at patience!) and then found out this morning that it had worked out, and I made spot number 7! So CRAZY! Through this, I think God has just been teaching me that He can move and have His way without me having to pray over every detail. I felt a little panicked when I realized that I was agreeing to a trip that I know nothing about and have hardly prayed about, but in reality, God knows my heart and I think He has been calling me to Africa for a few months now. He doesn't need my prayer or processing to move. So now I am just excited!
ARD letters for next year come out in two days. That is something I have spent a lot of time praying about, so I am excited to see what the final call is going to be. No matter what - I know and have felt God's hand at work in that area of my life as well.
Gramma is getting a pacemaker tomorrow. I am hoping this will give her more energy and be the final answer that the doctors will need to help her feel better.
And I have just felt so blessed to have the opportunity to live with Paige during this season of her life. She has been so encouraging to me, and I don't think I tell her that enough. I have been so proud to watch her follow God's path and lead her girls as they themselves follow God and discover themselves this year. She is doing such a great job.
I'm going to Kenya?! What?!?!?!?
