Its crazy to think that in less than a month I will be packing my bags and heading to Thailand for 2 weeks to work with Remember Nhu. an organization helping to fight against child sex slavery. A few months ago I was graduating high school and would never have thought I’d be traveling 40 hours to get to another country this November.
We will be leaving November 12th and will be returning November 25th. I am so excited to be able to have the opportunity to go serve with my Urban Life team. I am also nervous, since this is my first mission trip ever. I found myself anxious and worried the other day about all the little things that could go wrong and was doubting how prepared I was for a trip like this. As the devil whispered in my ear, I turned to 2 Timothy 1:7 and read the verse about the Lord not giving us a spirit of fear or timidity, but of power, lover, and self discipline. I started thinking about how many lies I was listening to that the devil was telling me, and how God told me to worry about nothing. I know that fear is not from God and that it shouldn’t have any room to fill my head with worry-full thoughts.
At this moment I am letting go and letting God give me a spirit of peace and giving him this time before the trip to prepare my heart for Thailand. I know God has great plans for us in Thailand and I want to be the best I can be; to be the hands and feet of Christ.
Please keep us in our prayers during this time of preparation. Thank you for all of you who have been praying about me during this journey. I appreciate all of you so much.
