I Will Follow You

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." Mark 1:17 (NIV)
"Where you go, I'll go
Where you stay, I'll stay
When you move, I'll move
I will follow you
Who you love, I'll love
How you serve I'll serve
If this life I lose, I will follow you
I will follow you"
I will follow-Chris Tomlin

T- 16 Days

That's right! I leave in 16 days! It's crazy how time flies. It feels so real yet unreal at the same time.
As of today, I am down to $2,820 left to raise!

(Before I continue, if you are reading this post, GREAT! I just want to ask and make sure you also "Join this Site" or let me know you are receiving the emails! I just want to keep track of who all is staying updated! Thanks!)

At the beginning of the month, I sent out a second round of support letters. In these letters I said, "If I can raise $1,000 this month, I will dye my hair a crazy color (I asked for votes and so far I have only gotten one vote. haha)
Well, as of today, September 23rd, 2014, I have raised $1,084 this month alone!!!

Guess I will be dying my hair in couple weeks!
BUT I also said that if I could finish my fundraising this month, my entire family would dye their hair the same color and we would all go out in public together, as a celebration for reaching the end!
I am soo close to seeing my Dad, -The History Teacher, The Football Coach, The Manly-Man, 6 foot something MAN with pink or purple hair. Come on! How many daughters get to see that in their lifetime? Haha! PRAY HARD that I get to see this come true!

This weekend I am going down to visit with my Aunt and Uncle and their kids. It will be great to see them and hang out with them before I leave.

Next week is my last week at Publix. So far I am only scheduled 2 shifts (one more this week). So I only have 3 to go! Though I am hoping and praying that I can get an extra one or two for Thursday and Friday. Gotta finish strong!

Going to be starting to pack soon.
It's a little overwhelming to think about all the changes coming up so soon!
One  more Sunday at my church.
Two more youth services on Wednesday nights.
Three more shifts at Publix.
16 more days at home.

Today I spoke at my old school, Praise Academy (Here in Powder Springs, GA).
I spoke about Nepal, Colombia, and Kairos.
There were over 300 students and faculty in chapel today. God gave me the peace I needed, when I needed it.

And lastly, it was 5 years ago this month that God first place a call into missions into my heart. Forever thankfull!!!
5 years ago, I was sitting in a chapel service, just like the one I spoke at, in the exact same room. My life has never been the same! :)

Until next time!

Kairos : The start of something new!

Makes me sad that I really only blogged 7 times here but I am so excited to start it back up! I can only hope that all of my supporters will follow along on this journey that, without their help (and with God's help) would not have been possible. 
So if you were one of the people that sacrificed for me, THANK YOU. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making this dream a reality. 
Photo: $4,114 left to go! #kairos2015 #reignministries #missionsGod used you to accomplish His plan and I pray that He blesses you all for it.

I still have, as of today, $4,114 left to raise. (120 gifts of $35 will finish!) but I know God will continue to bring it in and finish what He has called me to do. So I am trying to be patient and watch how the end will enfold.

Today marks the one month date till I leave. The plan is that my grandparents will drive me up to Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 10th.  There is an opening ceremony on Sunday, Oct. 12th where I will meet my team face to face (we have been talking through social media for a week or two now) and I will meet my host family (although I will get to find out who they are at the start of the month and can contact them). I am so excited!

I will go home with my host family after the ceremony and I assume would be to unpack and settle in. But also to pack and get ready for Kairos Orientation the next day! We will be doing a camping trip to northern Minnesota along Lake Superior! I'm nervous but so excited! I have never gone real camping before, only training camp for Royal Servants (Nepal). 

I have a lot I still need to get before I leave. Some on the list includes : shorts, long sleeve shirts, thermal clothing, rain clothing, hiking boots, snow boots, and a bunch of other things. Though I am all set on shampoo's, conditioner's, and deodorants. And a head start on vitamins! ;)

This month will be a crazy busy month as I get ready to leave, see and hang out with people for the last time for awhile, visit family and work, work, work!!

I guess that is it for now! Thanks for reading! Thanks for giving! Thanks for praying! Thanks for overall, investing in my calling to missions and ministry. Talk to you again soon!

God bless!
