This past week I was very blessed to be a leader for both preteen and youth camp. As you can see I went with two great group of kids.

Both camps were fun but trying. We had some students recognize that they had drawn away from Jesus and have committed to working on their relationship with him. Praise the Lord that he never leaves us when we draw away from him.  From my own experience I know that our God is so patient and that no matter how long it takes us he will be there to embrace us and celebrate our return, much like the story of the Prodigal Son.

While I saw God work in student’s hearts this past week, he was also working in my own. The past few months have been difficult for me as I struggle with uncertainty.  I had such a different plan for my summer and while God is now revealing his own plan for my life, it has been hard to release my own desires once again. But what is crazy about releasing the desires that I had hoped for this summer is that God is granting me a desire that I have yearned for years.  He has provided a way for us to serve him in South Sudan and Josh and I both know that this is exactly what we are supposed to be doing. We don’t know what we are supposed to do before we go or what will happen when we come home, but we are certain that God has guided our paths to this point for a very specific purpose.

Thank you for joining us in this journey we call life.  We are trying to live in complete obedience to our God and Father and we hope that you will be able to draw closer to him through our experiences.

Love ya,
