It has been AGES since I last wrote and for that I am very sorry... But I am back!
Life has very interesting ways of changing. My life is extremely different than it was one or two years ago. Two years ago I was like a ship that had lost its anchor.
I had returned home from Africa with all sorts of idea's for a career or trips in the mission field. I was looking in many different directions and had yet to figure things out. I am happy to report that I finally figured my life out... at least for the next couple of years. Right now, I have just started my second semester of my first year in university. I am taking a degree in Social Work, and I absolutely LOVE it. It took me a while to figure out what exactly I wanted to do and entering into a school setting seemed terrifying. I didn't want to go into a program that wasn't going to be useful or allow me to get a job in the field that I want to work in. Social work is something that will give me a job in my country as well as help me with my plans to do missions.
And that brings me to exciting news! I have decided, as well as feel called, to go into the field of working with victims of human trafficking. This is an issue that I see within my own town as well as globally. Already, with school, I have learned a lot that will aid me with my future plans. I know that for the time being, I am in the right place at the right time and that is a great relief.
I look back over the last few years and it is incredible to see how God has changed my feelings, thoughts, idea's, and plans. He has given me a desire to love people and the tools and education that I need to do so. I have learned a great deal about God's heart for His children, and that He really has our best interest at heart.. We as His children just have to be willing and open to being obedient and submissive to what the Lord is calling us too. It is scary and risky but usually the rewards are great.
