Trusting God

Well, I just got back from the Campus Crusade Training. I am SO excited. I spent my time getting to know the teams that will be in Western Europe. I am ecstatic to know that I have the privilege of investing in their lives these next couple years.

I felt a couple confirmations from the Lord while I was there. 1-I got the flat.. I have a place to live now!!!! 2. I connected with a lot of girls and I got more clarity as to what my role will be in Western Europe.

There are currently 134 full time staff working in 32 countries to reach 16 million students. Somehow that does not seem right. I am excited to go and be a part of this. I am excited about the doors that God is opening up in Western Europe!

So, I came home tonight and I have 2 more weeks of work. Please pray for my focus. And please pray for my support. I am in need of $1200/mo. to be able to leave on October 3rd. (which is the date on my plane ticket.)

Trusting always.

What we think about God

To qoute A.W. Tozer:

"What comes to your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you."

What do you think of this quote? Post your thoughts... I want to hear them... er.. uh... read them. :-)


I am at STINT briefing for Campus Crusade this week. In Keystone Colorado... yep.. breathing hard... drinking lots of water.. I am not used to this high elevation. :-) If you are reading this, please pray that I would be rested and refreshed this week. And pray that my support would come in. To the Glory of God!

My cousin Lisa

So today I met my cousin Lisa for coffee...well... I had coffee.. she had a cold slurpee/smoothie type thing that reminded her of an Orange Julius. :-) Good stuff. Anyway, We spent over 3 hours hanging out and talking. I just want to say... It is not often you find a good friend in a cousin... but I have found one. I love Lisa. and I love how God is using she and her husband to minister to hundreds of kids of all ages through camps, church, work... amazing.... lucky kids!

I've been Tagged....

So, my friend Tre came into work today and asked me if I saw that I had been "tagged" on his blog.. "no..." I replied... "what are you talking about?" So he proceeded to explain to me what it was all about.. His friend Hutch.. who I don't know.. tagged Tre.. for a book meme.. yeah.. not sure what that means either... anyway... it is kind of cool.. so I am complying. :-) What it means is that I answer some questions about books I am reading or have read and then I "tag" others at the end....

hmm.. sounds suspiciously like a chain letter.. only it is a chain blog.. wait.. back to the point at hand.

So.. to the questions:

Number of Books I own: I am not sure.. who besides Tre actually counts all their books? I know that I have 4 medium sized boxes of books packed to ship to Germany. And I have two more boxes that I am leaving here. And another 2 boxes worth that I put on a book shelf in my temporary bedroom at my mom's place...

Last Book I Read: J.I. Packer's- Knowing God. I read it during lunch today. No.. not the whole thing... It is the book that my girl's group is going through... incidentally... we are called Leafy... long story... but it really fits. :-)

Five Books that Mean a Lot to Me: 1. Bible 2. Fern-seed and Elephants-C.S. Lewis... a collection of his essays on Christianity. 3. Strong Women Soft Hearts-the first book that Leafy went through.. good stuff. 4. Tales of the Kingdom by David and Karen Mains. 5. Tales of Resistance by David and Karen Mains.

4 and 5 were books that my brothers and I got when we were in our pre-teen ages.. and they still mean a LOT to me. :-)

Okay. now to tag 5 other people.

Bekah Tucker-my amazing friend who is in prague as I type...

Alison Gentry- cause she keeps up on her blog and would have some great stuff to say...

Lisa Russell-a missionary to Venezuela... has a heart bigger than the whole country...figuratively speaking of course...

Ian Durias.. cause he would also have some great answers...

and the 5th person I know with a blog... Aimee B. She has a really great blog... lots of pictures about her knitting. :-)

Another friend leaving on a Jet Plane...

yes.. my dear friend Bekah...

She is leaving tomorrow to fly to Prague. If I was not flying to Germany two months later, I think I would be more sad. So instead, I am sad for the changes that are happening. So far this summer, my friend Allison got married; my friend Sara moved to Burundi, Africa; my friend Jodi moved to Costa Rica; I moved out of the apt that I shared with my friend Annie; and now Bekah is leaving. Whew... feels like a lot sometimes.. but the great thing... i know we are all pursuing the Lord and that it is His leading which is taking us these directions!

So... Bekah... hang on... Lord willing my support will be in and I will be moving to Europe just 2 months behind you!
