I am currently in Miami staying at one of the girl's house, it is absolutely beautiful!!! Here I have finally met the team that I will be with for 5 weeks. It has been wonderful meeting everyone, they are all so nice and ready to serve in Haiti! We have been getting to know each other and sharing our hearts, it's like we are family! :) Also, we have discussed a lot about culture shock, being flexible, and understanding graee and turth. I have learned so much already.
Tomorrow, we fly out at 1:30pm straight to Haiti. It's nice to know that I am not the only one anxious, because we all are. Please pray for me and my team, that we rely on the Lord for His stength. I may be nervous, but I am SO ready to experience Haiti. I already know I am going to fall in love. God is so good. I praise Him for this opportunity. I know He is going to do powerful things during my time there. He is going to challenge me and push me out of my comfort zone, it is going to be awesome! Because with the hardships comes growth and wisdom. It will be so humbling.
He already has been challenging me... I had a really hard time saying goodbye to my family and friends. But I know He has called me to go to Haiti. Haiti here I come!
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." -Ephesians 2:8-10
