Drum Roll Please....

I am excited to announce that I will be interning with Campus Crusade at......drum roll please........

UC Irvine!

and I cannot be more excited!

For a few weeks now, I felt as if God was preparing my heart to be somewhere else. I spent time praying about it, praying that God would put me exactly where He wanted me to be and that I would be ok with it. I am certain He has done just that. I found out this past Friday that I was placed at Irvine and God has been assuring me every day since then that this is where He wants me, I have full confidence in him. 

Training was draining. Ha, that rhymes. Anyway, I came home from my weekend physically and emotionally exhausted.  But, God has also filled my heart with joy, a joy that I know has come from Him. I am so excited for what He has in store for me this year and I cannot wait until I can report to campus in September. I can't wait to meet the students that I have been praying for for so long now. And I'm excited that I get to begin assembling my team of ministry partners, nervous and scared, but very much excited. Oh yes, and as of today, I have my very first supporter!!!

I'm bummed that I didn't get any pictures from this past weekend, but I did manage to get one of all of the Cal Poly students who will be interning and stinting this next year.

I also got to grab lunch on Sunday with my sister, brother in law and this adorable baby girl...

While I was away at training, I was also thrilled to hear that my Senior Project was absolutely wonderful. What a huge answer to prayer and what a huge blessing. God was so faithful and I had no reason to doubt Him, though I did.  I was in contact with the girls on my team all of Friday and Saturday while our project was going on. The girls did such a wonderful job, everything went incredibly smooth and the feedback they were getting was encouraging to hear. I can't wait to see pictures of how our displays looked.

The day before I left we were able to take a few quick group photos for our project.

More Flax. 
I'm hoping that this week will allow for me to relax and let the reality of everything that has happened in the past couple weeks sink in. 

I'm so grateful that my God is faithful in all that He does!
