All because I listened to God’s call to go, take a look at what God did…..
*Traveled to 4 Countries
*Had over 2,000 Kisses (What can I say, we love to kiss here….)
*Got over 3,000 Hugs, most of those are from my knee hugger class
*Countless Number of Proposals/Claims that I’m their wife….
*2 Indian & 1 Chinese Wedding
*Almost wrecked 1,000 times…You smile b/c you think I’m joking I laugh b/c I’m not Love driving on the opp. Side of the road and car while dodging everything
*Got peed on by a baby…. What can I say this is Africa….
*Learned to eat with your right hand and wipe with your left…. Just kidding, I use toilet paper but not everyone does
*B/c not everyone uses toilet paper…I got Petee…yep I got a parasite I carried for 10 months and named it Petee
*I can use a squatty potty with perfection
*Walked with Lions
*Can kill bugs, spiders and things I have no clue what they are
*Clothing is optional in Africa and no-one is freaked out but you, when they decide to not wear it
*Seeing kids barely clothed, starving, drinking dirty water, among drunks who rape and kidnap them. Knowing that many of those kids will die of HIV, Malaria or something as simple as a cough, will always breaks your heart, but knowing God is in control starts to put your broken heart back together
*A beautiful shower under the stars equals 72 pumps of water, caring that water in a bucket on your head to the fire, 10 minutes to warm it
*De-worming is just a part of life
*Getting interrogated by the Country you’re supposed to live in the next year and ½ makes you want to go home
*Missing your brother’s Wedding, surgeries in your family, a brother’s engagement and not being there for your sister when she needs you the most is the hardest thing you will ever do, but the gift of “trust” that God gave me through this is beyond words
*Living in a country you don’t know for 3 months on your own after a mass 2 weeks training is something I would never take back. I have never felt more loved by the people.
*God giving me a beautiful local family who lives out the Gospel, is a blessing/gift from only Him
*Getting to live with two crazy girls who I love dearly is priceless…getting to scare them is just fun
*Loving on 122 students and their families, from 18 different countries and religions is another gift from God
*20 of those students are now following Jesus and all I can say is “Glory be to God!”
