In Case You Were Wondering----

I AM GOING TO BE IN AFRICA IN 37 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!

CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so pumped! I can't believe I am actually going to AFRICA!! It's been a dream of mine since I was like 9 years old or something like that. The fact that it's actually happening is beyond crazy! I still don't think I fully realize that it's actually happening.

God has been so good to me lately. Every day is something new and exciting. I know that He is teaching me to enjoy every day that He gives me. I know that He is blessing my life and everyone around me everyday. Even though I really do live for the future, and always have, God is really showing me that TODAY is exciting too!

Today I learned how to draw blood and start I.V.'s in clinicals. Sometimes, I doubt myself being a good nurse... questioning whether or not this is what God has called me to do... but days like today, are days that I realize that I am going to be a great nurse!

I love that God continually teaches me lessons about His grace and how He blesses me every single minute of the day.

:-)

Please pray for my trip... pray to God will prepare my heart for the people of Africa and what I am going to see and be faced with. Thanks!
