After months of praying for this moment, it has finally arrived! I am headed to Kenya to answer God's calling on my life. I am filled with so much joy and excitement about this moment. As I type this blog from the Amsterdam airport, it still all seems so unreal.
Just a year ago, I would never have imagined that I'd be headed to live in Kenya, I am so grateful that God's plans for our lives supersedes our own limited desires. I could fill this entire page reflecting on all the sadness, loneliness, desperation, and hopelessness I felt before trusting in Jesus. But I'd rather talk about all the joy I have now walking the path God has called me on. I don't know what He has in store for me in Kenya, but I'm excited to find out. I'm excited to trust God for all of my needs, both big and small. I'm excited to join a new faith community. I'm excited about working with the kids and loving them unconditionally. But I'm mostly excited about God alone! He alone is enough. He fuels my fire, and I am so pumped right now!
Although, I couldn't see myself headed to Kenya a year ago, God knew and He has been laying this foundation from before I was born. Wow!
Let the journey begin!
