Ok but seriously why are you here?

On to the purpose of this thing. I made this blog really for selfish reasons. I want to keep a diary/record of the things I get myself into incase I ever get amnesia or something...
Well actually I wanted to document my next mini adventure... You see last year I made a new friend :) Her name is Liz!
It was a typical Friday like any other hot muggy day in June and I met the group for service, and saw an unfamiliar face.
The sister who's home we meet at on Fridays introduced her as Liz, she was visiting from Oregon to see some family in VA and was staying with the sister for the night until her family came to get her.
I got the opportunity to work with her in the ministry that day and it was the best day ever.
We had so much in common and it felt like we were old friends :)
However what impressed me the most about her, was her zeal for the ministry, and the big steps she had taken already at 20 to expand her ministry, and her even bigger plans that she was working towards!
I always had similar goals of serving where the need is greater or possibly foreign language territory, but they seemed to be more distant dreams than tangible goals, until we worked together that day!
Since then I've been more motivated and have really put my goals first, asking Jehovah to help me be balanced and yet trust in him enough not to shy away from things that seem may impossible at present.
Seeing how so many, like Liz, have been able to rely on Him and pursue goals that further His will, big and small, encourages me to "taste and see" for myself.
So for the next two weeks I'll about 3,000 mi away from home with my dear friend Liz, and working in new territory, and getting a taste of what the ministry is like in the Purepecha language! This is exciting to me for many reasons but to name a couple: this is the longest I've been away from home; I've never been to the west coast; and I get to be with Liz again :)

The coolest girl on the west coast :D Check Out her amazing adventures in the full time ministry!
