Africa

Well, I leave on Sunday to head to Zambia, Africa on a missions trip! It has been my dream for the past 11 years to go there and now it is coming true! I've wanted it so much and now that it's here...it scares me! It's surreal! Right now I'm more worried about the travel details. Crazy, I know. But isn't that just like us crazy Christians...We beg God for things and when we get them, we get worried, ungrateful. Forgive me, Lord! I am ready to get away for awhile. Life has been strangling me lately! I'm ready to get off of myself and get some perspective. I'm ready to help those in need! But I'm also ready to get some healing for myself! May I come back not the same...but changed for His glory! 5 days after I return I will head to the beautiful mountains of Colorado to take my precious YL kids to camp. I am excited! But I pray for rest! And I pray that God will use me profusley to pour out His love on these hurting, orphaned children, and on my hurting Yl kids! I am about to see more pain than I know of now. Fill me, Lord! And please watch over my little man, Linus while I'm away, and my big man, Ryan! Talk to yall sometime in the near future! Africa bound....

I saw the picture of you and your dog on the Lproof blog and wanted to stop by and say hello.


I pray you have the eyes and heart of Jesus for the people you minister to and He pours out His message to those who receive ministry through your lips.

Please protect her as she travels and protect her family.

I plead the Blood of Jesus over you from the top of your head to the soles of your feet, no weapon formed against you will prosper.


In Jesus' Name. amen
