I can't believe that it is the 22nd. Its mind blowing how fast this month has slid out of my fingers and ran away. I guess we have just been so busy with the group that I lost track of time. Speaking of the group, I still need to post pictures. Maybe this week?? Or it might have to wait till after the group leaves when we will have much more time to do things.
Yesterday we went to the BEACH! It was so much fun. Usually on the Caribbean side the waves are super tiny. But yesterday God had a surprise for us. The waves where HUGE. It was so much fun, we bodysurfed for a long time.
Today some of the group will be going on homevisits. (Which means to go to visit elderly or sick who are stuck at home. We pray with them, sing and read God's word.) And the other group will be going to a home for the elderly. After that I'm not sure what we are going to be doing. But its going to be great whatever it is!
Have a wonderful and blessed day,

I have this prayer that had been on my heart for about a week now. And it is that God would set my heart on fire. Sometimes I take a step back and look at my life, and my relationship with God and I realize how sinful I am, and how much I fail at being holy. I want my heart to burn with love for him. I can't describe what I want, and how bad I want it. I know that God will answer my prayer in his timing, sometimes its just so hard to wait.

Last year in July I went to a camp, that changed my life. Here is the post that tells about what happened. I really don't think I would be what I am today without that camp. My life as a Christian before that was bad. I hated God, I was angry and hurt. But God touched my life, he turned my life upside down and put my heart on fire for him. Now my family is in missions, and its been almost a year since then. Wow, time goes by fast. I'm talking about this right now because I want to go back to that camp. Its an amazing place, where you can be put on fire and serve God and each other. Here is a link to the website. My family has been praying, it going to take a lot of money to send me and three of my siblings. Its going to take almost $3,000 to get us there. My family doesn't have that money. So I'm asking, if you fill God stirring in your heart to donate to us, please do. This is in God's hands, if he wants me and my siblings to go, he will send the money. If he doesn't, the money won't come.
May God Bless all of you,

This is just a quick post to say that SSME starts tomorrow! I'm so excited about it. :D All but two of the participants are here, they come tonight at 10:00 ish. This month is going to be so packed! But amazing. Its great to see the senior missionaries again, and meet a new little one. Next time I post I'll try to post pics. :D

This morning in our morning prayers there was a line that particularly stuck out to me. Here it is from Psalm 63: In the shadow of your wings I rejoice.
I guess it was just a reminder to me, God is always there for me and for you. He hides us in the shadow of his wings. And we should rejoice because of that fact. There was another line in Psalm 63 that says, For you love is better than life. Wow. That strikes hard. Better than life? Better than my parents? My siblings? My friends? Yes. God's love is bigger and better than all of those put together! God is amazing. Period. :D
So will you rejoice with me?

June is going to be a busy but fun filled month. Today our missionary partner Sid is going down to pick up some more missionaries!! I can't remember if I told y'all or not so I tell you again. This month we are having a group down and with them we are doing SSME. Its a month long school where you learn head on what missionary life is like. We are all very excited about it, there will be four missionaries who help to lead it, James among them. Then next week the participants will come and then it starts.
More updates soon!
