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

Week 31!

This week has been a pretty laid back week which I was very thankful for.
Sunday was Mothers Day. I made my mom a fun jib jab video which she loved.
It was a great day spent with my host family. I'm so blessed to have two amazing women as my mom and host mom :)

Monday we packed up our hiking packs and went out to a lake/park with a trail around the lake. Our staff timed us and we competed against the other two teams (I'll explain in a bit). We set up a tent and a tarp shelter and hiked with our packs (25-30lbs) around the lake. My team was the first team that made it around the lake!
(Next week we are heading out to Boundary Waters. We have to split into 3 teams due to our size. Boundary Waters won't allow teams larger than 9 people at once.)

Tuesday, was the second day of the Kairos Games. We completed our second 5K of the year. I shaved off 6 minutes from my first 5K. It was such a great accomplishment!
This is my boundary waters team!

Wednesday was a shorter day due to my church not needing us interns. We got to leave early and spend the rest of the day resting. When I got home, I went on my first bike ride in over 10 years. It felt soo good. I had forgotten how great it felt to ride a bike.

Thursday was a Sabbatical day for everyone. I got 12 hours of sleep, went on a 15 minute bike ride, did my devotions outside as I listened to the rain, watched a couple movies and cross stitched. It was a great day.

Friday, we did alot of Boundary Waters prep. We looked, as a team, over all our food and equipment. Set up our tents and made sure they were set. Then we cleaned our way out of the office in preparation for being away for a week.
I went on another bike ride, probably 2-3 miles. So nice :)

Saturday I went on yet another bike ride, this time going over 4 miles. Such a great work out and beautiful scenery. Other than that, I'm resting because on Monday we leave for Boundary Waters. It's Monday through Saturday. Also did laundry today and packing my bag. Though I'm still working on it, I'm having a hard time fitting everything in. haha. It doesn't feel like I'm bringing much but it adds up.

Please keep the 3 teams in your prayers next week. Pray for good weather, safety of us all and a good time being surrounded by God's creation and exploring new places.

It's hard to believe that after Boundary Waters, we have 2 weeks left until we leave for Royal Servants summer. I'm getting so excited to go to Scotland!
