Yesterday, I finally got my Trip Guide. It took quite a while for it to reach me because I'm still overseas and had it sent to someone in the states who then brought it out here for me. But I finally have it. The funny thing is that they put me down as from Michigan because that's where all my stuff was sent too:
I also received my baggage tags, a cute little Compassion International bag filled with goodies for me and for my sponsored kids and a notepad. I'm still waiting for my trip itinerary (along with information on what projects we'll be visiting) but that will be coming later.
Even with my trip guide laying right beside me as I type this, this trip still feels pretty surreal to me. It hasn't really sunk in that I'll be traveling across the world to see Fadi and Ali face to face. It's crazy!
How can you support me?
Firstly, I'd just like to say a huge THANK YOU to all who have already prayed for me and donated. You all are wonderful and I pray that you would be blessed abundantly for what you've done.
I still need some money to pay for my domestic airfare and to buy gifts for Fadi and Ali. Click HERE to donate and to hear more about my trip.
Prayer is still appreciated. I know wholeheartedly that God's going to change and transform me during this trip and I'm really excited. I mean, moving back to the States just days before this trip is going to transform me but I know that God's going to speak about his will for me while I'm in Honduras.
So... how can you pray?
- Pray for God to guide and invigorate me as I address the preparatory details for this trip like flying to Miami (BY MYSELF!!!) and back and shopping for myself and for my kids
- Pray that God will open my eyes, ears, mind and heart to Him in a special way during the trip
- Pray for my fellow tour members (I will learn their names later), that they too will be open to all that the Lord wants to do in and through them during the trip
- Pray that God will use me as an ambassador for Christ - that I would represent him well as I interact with children, Compassion staff, fellow travelers, and anyone else God brings across my path during the tour
These four points are taken directly from my Trip Guide from the Journaling section. They encourage me to start journaling and praying about the trip right now so that my heart may be ready. So, please pray with me!
If you look to the right of this post, you'll see that I've been counting down the days. It won't be too long! I'm so excited!!
