The Beginning

The Lord is amazing. I stand in awe of Him, and all that He does.

     Wow!! This is all that I can say after coming home from orientation this weekend with Go Now Missions. This weekend, God blew me away! He showed me His power, and truly was present in everything that took place this weekend. 
     At orientation, we were divided up into groups, called tribes. My tribe was made up of teams going to Mexico, Venezuela, Nashville, and Texas. Let me just say, I wish we were all going to the same place! Our tribe meshed together so well. We felt like we had known each other for years and years, when in reality it had only been about 5 hours. God truly placed each one of us together! 
     The weekend flew by, and was extremely busy! We participated in seminars, worship, house church, tribe bible study, travel preparations, prayer walking seminars, commissioning service, and that is just the beginning. Each one of these things grew us so much in Christ! Who knew that in one weekend, my whole view of the Lord and passion for Him could grow so much! 
     I stand in awe of Him, and of His power. I am amazed already at how He is working!! I look forward to this summer serving Him in Oaxaca, Mexico. I am ready for Him to use me in some crazy ways!! 

Thank you all for your prayers and support as God takes me on this journey. 

Prayer requests for now:
- God is preparing the hearts and opening the hearts of those we will meet
- Safety
- Health
- Jeff and Liesa Holeman (career missionaries to Oaxaca)
- Travel (to Mexico June 6)
- God will use us out of our comfort zones
- Discernment of His will
- Team will mesh together well, and we will truly be a team
- Nehemiah Teams Orientation (June 1-5)

In Him,

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against the flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."    - Ephesians 6:10-12
