Anticipation & a Thank You


The anticipation. When you know something great is about to happen. It reminds me of my kids waiting for the cookies cookies to bake. It's an anticipation that the rewards will be great.

I am beyond excited for our missions trip to Mexico. I know God has big things in store. I thought I would have some fear going into this. I thought the closer we came to leaving my nerves would kick in. Not yet.

So far the hardest part has been sending my two youngest off with their grandparents.

Right now there is only excitement. Excitement that I am able to serve others along side Hubby and my kids. We get to show them by example what it means to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I can't wait to share with you everything we experience. I anticipate wonderful things.

I am so grateful. Grateful to everyone who donated money to help make this trip happen. I know none of you had to donate money. Some people have never even met me, {like my amazing sponsors. Please go check them out}and still you gave. I am grateful for all the prayers. We want to give our friends and family a truly heartfelt thank you for your help.

I've got some wonderful guest posts while I'm gone that I know will bless you. "we encourage" will be up on Tuesday.

You're continued prayers are appreciated!

Have a blessed trip! I cant help but wonder if God is preparing me for our August trip with this fire...Ive never had to be away from the girls for such a long period of time until now. And we'll do it all over again in August...but to accomplish HIS purposes in Central America!
I want to hear all about it when you get home.

Your Mission trip will change your life I can promise you that! I am prepping for my 3rd trip to Nicaragua in February and those people and children will change your hearts for the better. Here is a link to some pics and a post that I did. Have fun and embrace what God is calling you to do!
