I'm extending my time out here — AHHHH!!!!
After thinking & sensing & talking with people & hearing God in different ways.. feel like this is the way for now. (: I am extending my time until August 11. Rick is coming to serve here June & July, so we will be serving in the same city! Doing different things, but serving together—I'm excited for that (: From July 30-Aug 6, we will be going on a medical mission trip to Umphang (the border of Thailand and Burma) under Bob! We will be putting on health fairs for the villagers and teaching them about different self-care and health-related issues for their overall well-being. ♡ After that, Rick & I will head to Japan to visit some missionaries and check out what they're doing and then come back to the states on the 11th.
... CRAY huh?! ...forreal. But God has been really faithful to provide peace in which direction to walk next. I realize that until I walk through the first door, and only until then, He then opens the next one, and so forth. He doesn't open the last door without me first walking through the one he has right now. Not sure if this makes sense, but it's definitely something I'm learning. With each step, it requires a little more faith—thus equipping me for the next season. Kinda like a video game! Lol. It doesn't necessarily get easier as you progress forward (in actuality, the bosses get harder), but through each stage, you level up to have the necessary tools and skills and perseverance to prepare you for what's ahead. Alright, that was probably really nerdy.... but yes. (:
I think financially I will be okay because of the funds that came in earlier, and I am trusting God with it, but if you feel Him leading you, I would totally be appreciative. (button is at the bottom, right-hand side) As always though, prayers are much more needed and appreciated in the spiritual realm. Thank you for always reaching out and asking for specific requests and for being on the home front cheering (: I can definitely feel your thoughts, prayers and spirit of love—I would not be here, at this stage, without you. ♡
