All journeys have secret destinations, of which the traveler is unaware.

I have learned to be content in whatever circumstance I am. Philippians 4:11b

I'm so excited.....

and I just can't fight it! So, I've been at work ALL day, for like 12.5 hours. It's already been a rough week and it's only Tuesday. Anyway, I get home and eat dinner and I'm checking my email. So, I have a message on Facebook from Mrs H in Ghana. She wanted to know how my fundraising is going. Then, here's the kicker, she says "Laura has offered to pay for your ticket if you can get the money for the monthly payment" So all I have to say, is HOW AWESOME IS GOD!! I mean seriously, I've been trying to figure out how in the world I'm going to get that money in. and I saw a shooting star on the way home from work. I have to be back at work at 6 a.m. but I'm so excited I don't know if I'll even be able to sleep. I called a couple of my friends to let them know and I called my mom. She immediately sounded sad....she tried not to, but I can tell. She said "oh, so you''ll be gone for Christmas..?" I feel bad leaving her, but I can't let her "needing" me to keep me from doing something that God obviously wants me to do. So now, instead of $7000, I need about $3000. I can't even believe it. God is sooooooo good!
In Christ
BAM

Just keep your eyes upward and your feet moving forward...you're doing the right thing, and if it's His will for you to go, your mom and my cookies won't prevent you from going.

I believe in you and I'm thrilled for this opportunity!
