Anyways, I made it here safely. I didn't realize how much I talk. Some of you are probably thinking, "You didn't realize that? Wow you never shut up." I met three new people on my way here already. All of which asked why a young person like myself was all alone. They asked where I was from and why I was headed to Florida on the same flight as them. Great evangelism opportunity. I think I'm just so stocked about going to Haiti that it's made me more open with people about my faith. Or maybe I was like that before and never noticed it, but either way, I love this feeling of complete surrender to God. I'm letting Him use me in whatever way possible to evangelize and help further His Kindom. That, or I just annoyed the crap out of a lot of people by talking way too much which is possible but either way, I think I let God use me to talk to these people on the way here.
I made a taxi reservation for 3:45am in the morning. It's awful how early I have to get up. I'm am not ready for that, but I never can get to sleep before midnight so I'm thinking I'll probably only get about 3 hours of sleep. Oh well, I can sleep on the plane. My flight leaves Fort Lauderdale, Florida at 6:30am but I have to check in two hours in advance for an international flight. Sucks. It's about a two hour flight I think. I cannot wait for this whole thing to begin. I guess it already has, but I'm excited for Haiti. I know it's not all about the excitement and feelings because those will soon fade and I'll have to go on the knowledge that God has me in Haiti for a reason, but for right now, I am incredibly excited for what's in store. Woohoo!
This week, getting ready, has been hectic. A lof of emotional ups and downs, but God has been preparing me for this. It's starting to sink in that I'll be gone for a while. I'm really going to miss my family and friends, especially Rhea, but this is where I'm supposed to be and I have no doubt about that. It may be hard at times, which if you follow me throughout this whole journey, you'll see me go through those hard times, but I'm convinced that God's got something big in store in Haiti for me.
Thanks for reading along. I'll update everyday on prayers and praises and anything I'm going through emotionally. I hope you enjoy this journey with me. Please start praying now for God to move and for me to be open to whatever God has planned. Thanks!
