I woke up yesterday thinking something like “all things work together for Christ and people who love God for good” or some jumbled up variation on the misquote that stuck in my brain. The past week has been rough. I turned in my Cape Verde mission commitment letter that said I was willing to agree to a small list of very big things for the next year of my life. A year that I am learning a little bit more about every day, but also still wondering at its mystery.
This trip a huge commitment for me, and it makes me nervous. I have talked about it a lot with my friends and family over the last couple of days, and I hate that a lot of those conversation have been clouded by my doubt and anxiety that is prone to attack my mind when I am worried about the future. Graduation is approaching, and I already miss the people I care for so much here at my boarding school, NCSSM. The last two years here have been formative, and I want to make the next month or so one that I will remember as the greatest time I spent with my friends in high school.
I am preparing for fundraising now, and I hope to have letters and other information out soon so that you can be a part of what God is working. Right now, more than anything, please pray for my finishing well here at school.
