Hello America

I can’t believe time has gone by so quickly. I am excited to be home yet I know that my heart and the affect Africa had on me will hit me soon. Being that I have only been home two days I am still caught up in the excitement of family, coffee, internet, a car, hot showers, dishwashers, and laundry machines yet I know that I was not created for the comfortable lifestyle. As of right now it’s exactly what I need though and I am so thankful for America. I pray that I never take the freedoms I have in America, or all that I have, for granite again.

While I am here my main focus is getting in the secret place and making sure that I adjust well and allowing Jesus to tend to my heart. I plan on taking a season of rest and drawing near to the Fathers heart until He leads me elsewhere. I am content in whatever He has planned for me, for I know that He always has my best interest at heart. Although I have no idea what comes next, I am at peace knowing that Jesus is the one who leads my life. Jesus knows my desires for the nations and therefore I will sit in excited expectation for great things to come. The open doors, the initiations to partner with others laying down their lives in the nations, the connections that will come; my heart is excited. My heart is wide open, full of trust in God, and content in exactly where I am.

I probably will not be blogging as often but I will keep everyone updated on where and when I go back to the nations! Thank you for all of you who have kept me in your prayers, supported me, and followed my blogs. I am deeply thankful and honored. May God fill you to the brim with joy, peace, provision, and so so much more!
