Today is June 17, 2014. Three years ago today, Compassion assigned me my first correspondent Aprila! So I celebrated that today in a very unique way.....
|didn't get a pretty band-aid - oh well! ;)|
I guess it would be normal to have a nice meal or do something fun on an anniversary, but I think getting shots today was perfect and special.
You see, three years ago, I never imagined I would go on a missions trip. I never thought I would leave the country. And honestly, I didn't know Jesus very well. He was just a far-off Person to me.
Over the past couple years, God has grown a desire in my heart to know Him and make Him known (as the familiar Casting Crowns song "Thrive" says). God has used Compassion to draw me closer to Him and teach me many things. Compassion planted a desire for mission work in my heart. As time went by, the desire grew.
And now, three years later, I get shots for my first mission trip. I think it's super awesome how God had it all planned out all along. I am so excited to see what He does in Mexico because I know that He has wonderful things planned! I can't wait!
