Great Day

Hello everyone!

Today's the first day of the week, again. I had a wonderful weekend!! It was nice and relaxing and LaChelle and I even went out and grabbed some coffee with a girl named Mika who works with Christine Caine. It was incredible to just get father away from the base than driving distance and even more amazing being able to talk with such a cool person!!

Today I woke up and had an early breakfast, a great quiet time with God and then worship. During worship I got really scared. I'm really really scared that I'm not going to change, I'm scared that I'm not going to be able to heal fully and I'm just going to go back home the same person with the same problems that I had three weeks ago. I know in my head that that's not true and blah blah blah but you know what? I'm still scared!!

Anyways, it was a fabulous day after that! We had our work duties which LaChelle and I finished early so we deeeeeeep cleaned and re-organized our room! It was FABULOUS and looks wonderful!! (Well, as wonderful as a room full of 10 girls suitcases and junk can look!)

PS LACHELLE IS GOING ON THE SAME OUTREACH AS ME!!!!!!!!!! Well, we at least found out that we both chose the same outreach location, it's still not finalized that we'll both be able to go on it b/c of space....but, I'm pretty sure it'll happen (I'll let you know what we picked when I find out)!!! But, guess what....we unknowingly picked the most expensive outreach....but, don't worry I'll talk more about that later ;)

The other day when we were having coffee the lady asked us "so, you guys are like besties right?" and I was waaaaay too scared to answer yes for fear of jumping in too far too fast so I just smiled and said "We've only known each other for three weeks". BUT GUESS WHAT??!! LaChelle nodded her head YES to her answer!! WOAH! So the lady decided that we were "accidental besties", and I like that assesment. But, don't tell LaChelle - I'm still trying to be the "casually cool one" in the relationship...I don't want to seem desperate... :)

Anyways, after lunch we had our first lecture of the week. Our base leader Etienne is teaching again this week and he's teaching on the topic of "The Father Heart of God". It's supposed to be a real tear-jerker. I think it will be really nice to have a very very emotional teaching this week in contrast to last weeks very theological and intellectual teaching. I'm looking forward to it, especially because Etienne teaches through stories - which I enjoy!

Right now we have dinner (which is INSANE because it feels like I JUST woke up... the days have already started to fly...I've already been here almost a month!!!!) and then we have another lecture at 7 until 9 after which I'll take a shower and then try to get to bed early.

As of yet it looks like this week will be a very fabulous week; however, I've realized that my emotions are very similar to a roller coaster...But I'm learning to appreciate how deep my feelings are even if that means they're deeply high and deeply low...sometimes at the same time. :) I love being a girl!!

It's my sister's birthday in a few weeks - which I know will be insanely hard for me :( But that's just a side note, it really has nothing to do with my day right now. I just thought I'd add it! :)

Okay, G'Bye everyone!!!

  1. I'm kinda glad you're scared. It's better to be scared than cocky. At least when you're scared you're more open to correction, and healing, and turning everything over to the Lord, than when you're over confident in yourself. It's okay to be scared, and to admit to God that you're scared. I know He's gonna do a great work in you and through you. God bless.
