I've made you all wait long enough... so I thought I would finally tell you the exciting news that I posted about. I had wanted to wait for exact dates before I said anything, but I just can't wait any longer to share.
Anyway, as many guessed, I will be going to C*hina this summer!
First of all, let me say that I have been wanting to go back this summer so badly. However, I honestly had no idea how I was going to go. I didn't say anything to anyone, just kept praying that if it's what God wanted me to do, He'd find a way for me to go. Imagine my surprise... or should I say SHOCK when my aunt called one day a few weeks ago. I was home sick and Mom came in my room once she got off the phone. She was looking extra happy about something and I asked her why. She went on to inform me that Aunt L had called to say that whe and my other aunt (Aunt D) were going to C*hina this year. Her Church had decided to go and she had asked Aunt D to go, too. Aunt D had been praying about it and said that every time she prayed, my name just kept coming to her. She told Aunt L to ask me if I wanted to join them. Therefore, she was calling to see if I would go to C*hina with them. Alright, now is that God or WHAT? Here I had been praying that I could somehow go to C*hina... and throughout this time, my aunts had been praying about asking me to go to C*hina with them!! I know without a doubt that this is what I am called to do this summer. I'm not sure God could've made that any more clear. So on (or around) July 15th, I will be heading to the Liao*ning province with both of my aunts and a few other ladies from Aunt L's church. We aren't sure when we're coming home yet, but we will be there between 7-10 days. I can't go into a whole lot of detail about where we are working, but I can tell you that we will be working in a home of special needs orphans. And I couldn't be more excited.
