WOW!! So many mixed emotions as I am 4 days from my departure for LA. Campus is quiet. Its like a ghost town around here, as teams are heading out for their outreach locations. There are other schools still here but our entire school minus my little team of 7 are all gone. We just spent the last 2 mornings getting up @ 3:45am to see our teams off as they left for the airport. We are exhausted. We spent yesterday cleaning a family's condo as they went on outreach earlier that morning. Even though there hasn't been any lecture for 3 days we have been extremely busy, mostly cleaning and packing and helping others clean and pack. Its crazy to think that we have just had 11 weeks. It has flown by so fast! It is cool to watch what God can do when you make yourself fully available for his use. My heart is fresh and new. My eyes are daily being opened to His great love for me... As I receive His love, the greater I can love others. I am so excited to pour into my team and to the broken and the lost in LA and NY.
We watched a documentary on the child sex trade in America on Thursday night. It was very well put together. Pretty heavy... Not something you want to think is happening, but awareness is critical on this issue as it is going on in not just major cities but even in small towns... its going on right in front of our eyes. I will be seeing a lot of this especially in LA and in NY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsY93C8cm54
I am really looking forward to getting on the plane. My team is ready! I will be updating you hopefully more frequently as we venture to the mainland.
Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. Ephesians 6:19-20
