He made a way....

"He" being God, and the "way" He provided was the one to Ethiopia.

I officially leave for Ethiopia on Sept 17....making my mission trip to Ethiopia officially one month and 1 day away.

Since my last post, God provided all that I needed for the trip. We only had to provide about $500 of our own money for the trip. I plan on using birthday, Christmas, and any money made from SweetSamantha (my etsy shop) to replenish the $500 we're spending. God has truly provided for this trip, and I am ever so thankful for my friends and family that helped to pave the way. You have truly been a blessing and I don't think I can ever thank you enough!!!

I am excited beyond words about the adventure before me, and at the same time I am nervous too. Please continue with me in prayer. My number one fear is getting sick. Many of you (especially my fam) know how incredibly sensitive my body can be, and I am praying that I do not even feel nausea while I'm on the trip! I am planning on taking snacks with me such as peanut butter, crackers, granola bars, trail mix, etc. I am also planning on taking some over the counter meds. So, hopefully that will help in the event that something disagrees with me. Thank you in advance for praying for me, our team, and the people we come in contact with (even those we meet in the airport along the way!!).

I cannot wait to return and share with you exactly how God worked. He's already provided and we know He has great things in store....we just can't wait to see what those things are!!

Next up I'm getting my shots next week, and then just counting the days till the trip!!

I CAN NOT WAIT TO hear all about it. I will be praying for you EVERY day and all that goes along with it. Praying for the kiddos and for Andy--praying for you to not get sick....praying for your team while there. I know GOD is using this trip to mold and shape you at just the right time in your walk.....YOU HAVE nothing but FAITH and HE is asking for nothing but TRUST! I'm so proud of you. Hoping both our trips will bring GLORY TO GOD to others
