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



Well, I'm in Ghana! finally.
My flights both went well, and it only took a couple of minutes to get through customs in Acca. I have had a few days to just rest and mostly take it easy. So far though, I have helped make some candy, and cook dinner for Mrs H's birthday last night. And yesterday I helped in Alyssa's learning center a little. I'm doing pretty good so far. Thanks to everyone for their prayers and love. We are getting ready for Christmas here, and it's funny to hear Christmas music playing while it's 80-90 degrees outside! I'm looking forward to getting an updated posted later after family camp, which starts next Thursday. Love you all
In Christ


the time has come

I'm flying out tomorrow. I can't sleep. I'm worrying about all my luggage, and if I've forgotten anything. Worrying about traveling solo. It will all be ok though. Next time you hear from me, I won't be in NC anymore.



So, tonight was officially my last shift at work! How crazy is that. I have had some crazy days at work but I can honestly say that I will miss all the crazies I work with, especially the Kitchen Crew. Watched Wall-E with Heidi tonight, it was cute, I liked it. In 3 days I will be getting on a plane and flying to Ghana. I'm pretty excited, and freaking out and all of everything at once. I have to go to Wal-Mart, tonight or tomorrow even though I hate it. There are things I need to buy and it's the most convenient place to get everything all at once. My friends are having a farewell party for me tomorrow. Pretty cool I guess, but I don't like being the center of attention. It is nice to know that I will get to see people before I leave though.

I kind of can't believe that I'm actually going to Ghana next week. I mean, for 6 months! It is very very exciting and scary. If you know me, then you know that I do not like admitting if something scares me. But honestly, I'm a little scared. Just because I've never done anything like this before. I still feel like I have a lot to do before I go, but I think most of it is just packing & making sure I have everything I need. And in reality, if there's anything that I forget, then I more than likely can live without if for 6 months. I'm not totally sure that it has set in that this time next week I'll be on another continent. when I went this summer, I didn't believe I was going until I was THERE. I'm very apprehensive about traveling alone, I've always been in a group when I've flown before. As independent as I like to be, travel is one thing I've only done in groups. I'm sure it will be ok. I have a feeling I'm going to learn so much more, the importance of prayer. I have no idea how this trip is going to change me, but I'm fairly certain it will change me. We shall see!


doing better

so, as of right now, I have 7 days left in the States. I know, it's insane!! My car is still beat up, but I've filed a claim and have gotten the stuff sent to my agent for getting it fixed. I just got my computer back tonight (long story) One of my cats (Vader) got "fixed" this week, and my other cat (Harley) is still missing. Her missing is very stressful to me, she's like my kid, so if you want you can pray for that even though it seems silly. I'm in for a very very busy few last days of work so I know I'm going to be stressed out, I'm just trying to go with it. ok, time for bed since I have to be at work at 6:30 in the morning! ugh.
BAM <><
