This last week was amazing! I have never felt God and seen Him this much in my life. He is so big and longs to be use by us. He used me in ways I would have never thought of. He really knows everything about us. The same God that creates the most beautiful flowers, the most beautiful oceans, the most beautiful everything created ME and YOU. That means you are the most beautiful! We are His favorite ones! Freedom is ours. Proclaim that truth over your life!!! God is so amazing. He is our identity.

We leave in 3 weeks for PNG and I am so excited! I'm super nerves. I'll be challenge like never before and I can't wait for it!!!! Bulolo and Wau are the different villages we are going to and sharing the Good News. Hiking everywhere we go!We have to wear clothes that I have never worn before! I'm just so excited and can't wait!!!

Tonight we have Youth Street and that's just so much fun! The kids just need people to love them and people that really care about them and who they are. They have so much to offer, but they just get told they are nothing and they are stupid. They are so freaking smart! They are some of the most creative kids I know!

Please pray for me and that I would be sensitive to God and His words. Pray as we prepare for PNG. We still need a lot of money, but we do trust in God and one of His character traits is provider. Pray for rest, we do so much here and its very hard to do what God wants you to when your warn out! Thank you!

Keys to the Earth

Today in worship I prayed that God would lay something on my heart, and He totally did! So on Saturday night at Youth Street the speaker was talking about how God gave us the keys to the earth. So this morning I was praying God so me something big, and something that I really need to learn. As I was worshiping I saw a picture of a key, then Psalm 47 came to me.

"Clap your hands, all you people. Shout to God with joy. The Lord most high is wonderful. He is the great King over all the earth! He defeated nations for us and out them under our control. He chose the land we would inherit. We are the children of Jacob, whom he loved. God has risen with a shout of joy; the Lord has risen as the trumpets sounded. Sing praises to God. Sing praises. Sing praises to our King. Sing praises. God is King over all the earth, so sing a song of praises to him. God is the King over the nations. God sits on his holy throne. The leaders of nations meet with the people of the God of Abraham, because the leaders of the earth belong to God. He is supreme."

What I love most about this is that it talks about worshiping. That is what I was doing when this came to me.God has put us in control of the earth. We are here to do his will. He has put us over everything that is on this earth. It is time for us to use what he has given us and spread the word to his people.

Getting here and being here

So i'm finally here! The trip here was so hard. I was leaving LAX going to New Zealand and a bird hit the plane. They turned the plane around and went back to LA. Had to spend the night in LA. So I missed my connecting flights to get to Australia. Then I got to stay the night in New Zealand. Finally after almost 72 hours of traveling I was here! When I got here I wanted to come straight home. I'm feeling better now but haven't really done much expect sleep and put my stuff away. I'm sharing a room with 7 other girls 3 of which that are from the stated. I miss home a lot right now. It's hard to find time to call home. I'm trying to downland skype right now so I can talk to people. I don't feel good so please pray that I feel better! We have our first real time to meet other people today so I hope that goes well. School starts tomorrow which I'm really excited about! The weather reminds me of Nicaragua! That brings peace to me. I'll update more later! Love much!!
