Make the best of it. Laugh when you can. Cry when you should. Love always. Love those who love you, love those who hurt you. (Matthew 5:44) Don’t let life distract you from what is important. Be bold. Be better. Rally for what you love. & Never-ever-EVER! give up.
I’M SO EXCITED!!!!
This week will be very busy. It’s finals week. I also have to prepare to head to Ecuador this Saturday. I am so excited. This is my first missions trip and I have to much anticipation for what is in store. Finances are an issue, since I m supposed to raise about $2,200, and am about 1/10 there, but I am trusting in Gods timing and know that because I waited on God’s timing for a missions trip, he will prepare and provide. We will be in Ecuador, doing some workshops for some pastors and will later travel up to the mountains and help build a greenhouse for a small village that is in great need of help. I am so ready to serve and learn. I will be translating, since I am fluent in Spanish and English. We will be going to an indigenous village where the children are fluent in Spanish and their native language, when their parents do not speak much Spanish and only their native language. My prayer is for God to do something great in our team.
Please join me in prayer. I am asking for your support of my trip, whether it be financial contribution or through prayer. No contribution is too small. This mission’s trip is hosted by Living Faith Fellowship church in Pullman WA, you can send your donations on line.
I also have a GOFUND ME!
Church Mission Info:
I have not been here in a while, but I just wanted to share a short post. I just want to encourage anyone who is reading this. I have just been contemplating on life and on how so difficult so many moments can be. Life can bombard you with work, stress, and exhaustion. I have reached an understanding where I am able to fully comprehend that it does not matter who you are, how you grew up, and where you are…you still go through LIFE. Life can exhaust you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Contemplating on that..I rested in my favorite verse, Isaiah 40:28-31((NIV)28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.30 Even youth grow tired and weary,and young men stumble and fall;31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles they will run and not grow weary they will walk and not be faint.”Don’t give up! You have a God that is on your side. Whatever life is throwing at you, know that you have a God that knows you can make it through and is on your side, ready to fight with you and run with you. So in this journey that you have, don’t just walk it, RUN IT! You are more than a conqueror in Jesus. Romans 8:37 States it! Here is some encouragement for your Saturday afternoon. Cast all the worries and burdens that life brings unto God. Become weightless from your issues so you can run through this race we call life. Our goal here on Earth is to make the most of the life we are given, but we must not become distracted by life and remember that we are running towards something greater, and that is everlasting life.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27-The Need for Self-Discipline
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26
