So, I've been home a month now and I've been praying about what God has for me next. It's been a very stressful and challenging time, missing my friends and trying to plan my future. God has been so faithful even though I wasn't willing to truly give everything up and of course it was a struggle to just plan everything on my own and not really involve Him. But, even through all this He has given me the desires of my heart! He is an amazing Heavenly Father, by the way! Tomorrow I go back to work at a daycare that I was working at before I moved to Wisconsin. I will work there until the Fall when I will go back to nannying for the family I was with before (they had another little one, so I will be watching 3 boys now). And I will have even have next summer off, so I'm hoping to do more mission work at that time. I am so excited to be working with these people again! I am thankful I get to continue to build relationships with them and tell them about what God has done in my life in the past 7 months! I am so blessed! Thanks for all your prayers and encouragements throughout this time!
For the past 6 months I have been training to do mission work with Youth With a Mission in Madison, Wisconsin. I was also so blessed to be able to go love on children at risk in Uganda for 2 of those months for my outreach! It was such an amazing experience!
During this time I have really learned a lot and I am so thankful God has given me these opportunities! I am so blessed! He has been teaching me so much about His love for me and how He is my Heavenly Father, who is always perfect and gives me so many unexpected blessings.
I am heading home next week to rest, reconnect with family and friends, and pray about what God has next for me. If you can, please keep me in your prayers for that. I have several opportunities that I am considering for the future. I want to serve full-time in missions at some point, but I know I first need to be home for a season. All of the opportunities sound great, and I'd be willing to do any of them, but I want to do what is best and whatever will bring the most glory to my Creator.
A special thanks to all my supporters for playing a part in this! Without you all this would not be possible! I praise God for you and pray for you often.
Continue to check back here and look for updates on what God is leading me to next. Thanks!
Happy New Year from Uganda!! Our plane got in at about 10pm, we played some games and took naps. What a great start to the new year! We are now waiting for the second half of our team to get in. Then in the morning we all head to Kampala to work with the kids at Loving 1 by 1! I can't wait! Here are some pictures from our trip!
Hey, I know I haven't written here on this blog for a while. And it will probably be a long time until I do. I started a new blog for my YWAM missionary training, which starts next week!!! So please check out my new blog: http://sendmelordillgo.blogspot.com/, and please become a follower too! Thanks!

A while back, I got approved to be an Amazon Associate! That means: I will get a portion of the proceeds from whatever you by on Amazon.com. BUT the only way it will work is if you GO THROUGH MY BLOG!
SO, I just added an Amazon.com search bar on the left side of my blog. (It's right under the donate button and the title is "Support my through your purchases". All you have to do is: put in whatever you are searching for and that will take you to Amazon.com. Then you just go on with your shopping as usual! It's that simple! It's only one extra step to help me out! Plus, it doesn't cost you anything extra! (Don't worry it's not going to tell me show my what you purchased or anything like that). :)
Please share my blog link with your friends and family so they can participate as well! Especially anyone you know who shops on Amazon a lot!
Stay tuned for more Fundraisers coming soon!
7 weeks before I head to Wisconsin! I can't believe how fast time is flying by! I have a lot of work to do before then!
If you would like to make a donation towards my YWAM training please use the "Donate" button at the top of my blog.
I am still in need of about $5,000 before December! I will only have to have my tuition cost ($3,350) by September 16th. But of course, I need to try to raise as much as possible by then so that I will have enough funds for Outreach (overseas).
