Another thing that has been keeping me worried is that I am switching colleges in the fall and I have to have all that worked out before I leave for the summer. It would be so much easier otherwise, when I get back, I'll be running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to get everything transferred and what not so that I can go to the college I want in the fall. For those of you that don't know, I am at IUPUI right now studying Tourism Convention Event Management. That is definitely not where I want to be and I figured this out over Christmas break this past year. So, I decided to look into different colleges and a friend told me about Crossroads Bible College. I checked into it and loved it. Now, I just have to get accepted and get me credits transferred so that I can start there in the fall. It seems that nothing wants to go my way lately which is fine, it teaches me patience and reliance upon God. Anyways, anytime I try to call my admission's counselor at Crossroads, she never answers and then when she calls me back, I never answer. Busy lives apparently. I'm really excited for when I do transfer though. I will be doing the two year fast track program to get my biblical counseling degree, hopefully. I think I'll be good at it. My mom doesn't think so and that's only because she thinks I don't know how to be bold with my words and really tell people what they need to hear. I think that's something you can learn and I bet my mom would agree in saying that if that's where my path and passions lead me, then God will help me figure out the rest.
Back onto the topic of leaving in just a couple days, I have a busy week ahead of me. I am right now at Seth and Gretchen Easterday's house in Evansville. It's been fun already and I've only been here for maybe 12 hours most of which were spent sleeping, but it's nice to relax before I leave. This was an excellent small trip to take. Ali, Roan, and I are having a great time! I always love talking to the Easterday's. I feel like they're wise and understand a lot of what teenagers and young adults go through. They're such great examples. I can honestly say I hope some day to be half as good of an influence as they are to me.
After we leave here, I've got plans with a lot of people as last plans before I go. I think it's awesome to get to see all my friends and hang out with them before I go, but honestly, I feel like maybe this is starting to be more of a big deal than it should be. I'm just going where I feel God has called me. If we celebrated that everyday, my mom would have a party every time before she went to work because, right now, that's where God has called her. We would always be buying my dad presents every time he went out with his Team in Training team with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society because that's where God has called him to minister right now. We're all called somewhere and it's all just as important as anywhere else. (My dad is a mentor for a team that is raising funds to fight Leukemia. Once all their funds are raised, they'll go to San Diego to run a marathon which is June 6th.) I'm sure many of you know that, but it was something that was on my heart that I felt like needed to be said. Nonetheless, I'm still incredibly excited! This is not something that you get to do all the time and I think I'm going to grow a lot from this experience.
Thank you all for the support you have already shown me. I am so excited to be able to tell you all about my trip and let you all live a piece of it with me.Thanks for reading. I hope you liked it. Next time I write, I'll be in Haiti. Unless you all want an update about what
