Palmer Lake, Colorado...

This place is beautiful!  Who knew that would be here for an entire 3 weeks?

I am currently at Missions Training International for a 3 week training course.  I was called by World Relief who asked me to strongly consider going to this a week.  So last monday I hopped on a plane and made it out here with no hitches at all.  Clearly a God thing.

I cannot tell you the emotional roller coast it has been.  I sent out prayer letters literally hours before I left Blacksburg to come out here.  Many emotions and feelings have crossed my mind as I have for the past few days been in community with some amazing men and women of God who are following His calling to the far reaches of the earth.  I am humbled and honored.

Much of our time so far has been spent on community building and learning to love one another as one the most important things to establish wherever we go on the mission field.  There has been a lot of self reflecting...which has been rough, but so rewarding...

God is so cool!

Summer Thoughts...


So I have a blog.  I am not sure how this works, but as suggested by my blog title I am doing this in anticipation of my year internship in Burundi.  I will be working with World Relief as a HIV/AIDS programs developer.  I am excited. I am extremely intimidated. I'm praying lots.

BUT, before I make it back to the African continent, I have to raise support!

I think this is going to be the largest test of my faith...ever.

I have my own website!  You can donate to my own personal Burundi fund or to World Relief in general.
