An Adrenaline Rush

Within a few short hours, I'll be starting my missions trip to Nicaragua. For 65 days, I will be down in El Crucero, Nicaragua, just outside of Managua (Nicaragua's Capital). I will be working at New Hope Children's Foundation, which manages a school with more than 300 students from the community, an orphanage that has eleven girls and two boys, and a feeding center.

While I'm down in Nicaragua, although I will mainly just be a helping hand for whoever needs some help, I will be helping teach English and Mathematics at the Foundation's school.

I'm not quite sure what I'm feeling at the moment, on my way to the airport....realizing that this will be my first time going on a plane on my own. I wouldn't really say that I'm nervous, but more of an adrenaline rush

Yet maybe even an adrenaline rush is a bad thing to have right now, so I lift that up to God...all nerves, anxiety, worry, and fear of the unknown, and thanking Him for this wonderful opportunity to which I have been called, delighting in the many who helped support me on this coming journey, both spiritually and financially, sending up Gratitude for every single moment that I experience, knowing that He has a plan, I humbly ask for the peace that surpasses all understanding.

For I can do all things through God who strengthens me..

I humbly ask for your prayers over the next two months, that I find gratitude in every moment, that even if it's not what I experience, I will experience what God has in store for me, that I maintain a spiritual discipline, that I put myself second to all, especially Christ, and that I serve the Kingdom.

I would not be making this journey without God, and more importantly, I could not have made this journey without God, and I entrust Him with everything.

All Glory, All Honor, All Praise to Him!
