I have amazing news!!! God answers prayer!

Psalm 133
A song of ascents. Of David.
1 How good and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in unity!
2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron's beard,
down upon the collar of his robes.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the LORD bestows his blessing,
even life forevermore.

I have news! I now have teammates in New Zealand! It seems the three girls originally staying in Wellington the whole time will now be with me in Palmerston North! I am so glad to have a unity that we may present to both the New Zealanders and foreign students we will be working with. I had made peace with the fact I would be the only American going and and as nervous as it made my heart I accepted it. But now, God answered requests in prayers and there willbe a team of four! Please pray for us to bond well and strong. The other three are all previous friends and two have been to NZ before providing some awesome experience and insight to the trip. Pray I won't be inimidated by their friendship and will open my eyes to opportunities God puts in front of me!

I leave in less than one month!

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15: 5-6

aaaaaand i'm on my way!

My plane ticke has officially been purchased! I depart for NZ on the 22nd of June and arrive there on the 24th! I'm terrified to see what God is going to do in my life during my time away and yet so excited at the same time. I am now 1/3 funded. It is so amazing for me to see how God works through people. If you still want to be involved in God's work overseas, there is a link on my blog as well leading you to where you may give.
I am two finals and one paper away from finishing out my Junior year. That also excites me and makes me wanto to dance around the house to Alice Cooper's "School's Out" Cooper is a phoenix native by the way! Well, i am off to my final across town! May He continue to bless you to be a blessing!
