IT'S TIME!!

I cannot believe it is already the 17th! I have thought, prayed, and planned for this day to come and now the time is here. I have so many emotions raging inside me it is hard to discern just one. I woke up incredibly fearful. But, throughout the day, have definitely sensed God's love for me and His overwhelming peace. I am amazed every time I think of all the people who are behind me - supporting me. I cannot tell you how encouraging it is! I have felt your prayers!

Please pray for my flight today to go smoothly. I have two overnight flights and arrive in Uganda on Saturday morning. As far as I know, teaching will begin on Monday. Please pray for incredible rest during my travels. I am so excited to share this adventure with you! It brings me such joy! Next time I write, I will probably be in Africa :)
