It’s been so long since I have updated but I would like to justify it with the craziness that has occurred in my life due to my most recent exciting news!!!!
I was chosen to participate in the Iris Harvest School of Missions in Mozambique, Africa with Heidi Baker!!!! I cannot even begin to explain to you how thrilled I am!!! I will be there for ten and a half weeks, worshipping with the sweetest humble children of the village. I will be reading books, writing papers, praying for the blind and deaf, rejoicing with them when they are healed, and giving all the glory to God.
This is going to be quite the adventure!!! I cannot even begin to imagine what God wants to show me during this time! It will just be far beyond my expectations!!!
The past three weeks since I was notified of my acceptance have been crazy! My dear friend Emily Lewin is a very talented and anointed photographer. One of the many things God has called her to is take photos of friends embarking on missions, pray over those photos, and bring in financial blessing through those. I was extremely blessed to be one of those people in her life that received this blessing. About one week after finding out, Emily took me on a photo adventure. Here are some of my favorites:
Shortly after my photo adventure with Emily, I began a tie-dying extravaganza to raise money for my trip! This started out quite interesting, as I was so focused on the skill I have with tie-dying that I could not figure out how to allow myself to have fun with it and tie-dye in freedom. I realized that I was more concerned about making sure everything was just right and conserving materials so everything would last longer than walking in freedom and leaning into the truth that God always provides.
A second round of tie-dying occurred with sweet Emily. Before we began, we just asked Holy Spirit to release creativity in an exciting way, full of freedom. Holy Spirit did just that. Here’s a little piece of our adventure:
I was so overwhelmed by the goodness of the Lord at the end of the night. How sweet of Him to really pour out His creative swirl on us. He is so good and so faithful all the time. What a blessing!!!!!
I am still in the process of raising support! Any and all prayers are extremely welcomed!!! Thanks so much for believing in me!!!
