England

Good morning!

I woke up at six today, and can’t go back to sleep. Tomorrow we leave for England. I’m traveling with a group of nine other people from my church to go on a mission trip to Nottingham. I’m nervous, excited, and so ready to see what God has in store.

I’ve never flown out of the country. When I was fifteen or so, I walked across a bridge into Mexico and shopped at a little town on the border. That is my only foray out of the US of A. I have my passport ready to go. I’m about halfway packed, and the travel guidelines are giving me a headache. Ziploc bags, no tweezers in my carry on, three ounce bottles…it’s overwhelming!

Last fall, God laid England heavy on my heart. I began to feel a huge burden for the country, and didn’t know why. In November, our church had a weekend of mission focus. There was a signup sheet for a trip to England. I knew without a doubt I was supposed to go.

Now I’m more certain than ever, but I still can’t believe it’s here. Michael is going to take the week off to be with the kids. He’s thrilled, and so are they. The time together is very needed.

I will try to blog from across the pond, but if we don’t have time, I’ll fill you in when we get home.

Please pray for us…
for safe travel…for health…for strength…for us to recognize where God is working and not be timid to join him there…for the people we’re working with…for our families at home…that God will be glorified in us and through us.

and if I could get specific, please pray for me, because I am singing in the church services we’ll be attending. I just don’t want them to hate it. Thanks!

I hear kids on the stairs…time to start my last busy day here.

Cheerio!

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
