Four days ago I had learned where I will be going for my first year. I was really nervous about opening that letter and discovering where I would be going. Before opening the letter I said a prayer. Then I opened the letter. First I saw the flag, but of course I didn’t recognize the flag. Then looking further down I read one word. ECUADOR. I am going to Ecuador!! I could not believe it. At first I really didn’t know how to react. I mean I didn’t really care where I ended up at, I just wanted God to decide that. And He did. Going further I read who my missions partners were going to be and my leader. Still I just didn’t know how to react. Thoughts and questions just kept popping through my head. What will it be like? Will my partners like me or want me? Will I be happy with them?
Then my whole group got together and now I realize that’s when I really got excited about where I was going. Just the fact that they were happy and excited and loved that I was a part of the group. I know I am going to have a great time with these girls and we are going to have so many great experiences! Now to just finish out this year!
I was able to text my parents where I am going, but I will have to wait to call them after we leave Mexico, which is where we all are now. I am sure they are happy for me, but nervous. I am nervous. But I know that this is where God want’s me to be, so I am in His hands. Other wise He would not have picked it. Ecuador The Jungle! This is going to be one FUN adventure.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for keeping me in your arms. You know what is best for me. You know my future not me. I am blessed to be going to Ecuador, to serve the people there and to spread Your word. My life is in Your hands. I pray that what ever I do and what ever I say the people will see You through me.
