Yes, the rumors are true... I have been accepted by SIM to go to Loja, Ecuador! Here's the info I know EVERYONE is dying to know ;)...
What I'll be Doing: There is a coffee shop in Loja called El Sendero (The Path) that reaches out to university students in the area (there are 2 Universities there). So I will be helping in the coffee shop, meeting and loving on people, and hanging out, all with the hopes of talking to them about Jesus.
When I'm Leaving: My target date is the end of January.How long I'll be gone: 2 years! aaah!
What I can YOU do: PRAY! I am looking for a team of people to be my prayer partners. You can pick a day of the week and be a part of my "Monday" prayer team or my "Tuesday" prayer team. Just let me know what DAY you want to PRAY!
GIVE! I am starting to raise my support financially as well. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know. For more info, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
What's Next: The next 4 months is going to be a whirlwind... My last ROC will be October 18... then off to my training in NC. After that, I'm hoping to take a vision trip to take a look at Ecuador... then home for a month to hang with the fam. I will be back in Dallas sometime after Thanksgiving and then again sometime around Christmas. So much of this is an unknown, but I believe that God has been preparing my heart for this for a long time and I'm excited to see what he is going to do with it.
Along with my excitement comes some fear... but I know he who has been faithful to bring me this far, will continue to be faithful.
