Well, a month has passed since I went to Tupelo, MS to train for my year in Haiti. The staff at Global Outreach spent a week pouring into us and training us for the next chapter in our lives. There were 8 of us that spent the week learning about joining the mission field. There were two couples from Wyoming that were going to Zambia, Africa together for medical missions, there was another single girl from KY that was planning to go to Brazil but has since decided on west Africa, the other couple with us is headed to Burkina Faso, Africa. That particular couple, Rebecca and Seth left just a few days after training for 6 weeks in France to learn English and then off to Burkina.
I am in the fundraising stages now and Lord willing will be off to Haiti in Jan. I am so excited about this next chapter and what God has in store for me. Please keep me in your prayers and shoot me an email with your address if you would like to receive a newsletter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
