1. I’M GOING TO GUATEMALA!
2. I’M MAKING GOOD GRADES.
3. GOD IS SO COOL.
So I’m going to Guatemala for Spring Break. And for those of you who don’t know, Guatemala is my second home [possibly my first]. I honestly could not be more excited. Also, my wonderful boyfriend Rand is coming too. He’s never been out of the country, so he is going to experience a ton of things for the first time. We are going to be working with Hearts for the Children Ministries. The ministry is run by Tom and Elizabeth Allen, and their daughter Cherylleigh. They are an amazing family and they work extremely hard serving the Lord and the people of Guatemala. They are so near and dear to my heart, and I can’t believe I’ll see them in less than 2 weeks! :) We will be going to the beach, and to shop in Antigua, and then the rest of the week we’ll be working with the church and the different ministries they run. I can’t wait to see all my little children! It’s been almost 2 years… and now I’m getting to go with Rand and share a huge part of my life with him. So needless to say, we are extremely ecstatic! Our trip is March 13th-20th. So please be praying for us :) and that God will really move and work through us and in us.
The Allens, Ann & Brent, and me in Guatemala!
In other news, I am making pretty good grades. I have a B+ in English, a C in Psychology, a B+ in Legal Studies, and my Human Development grade is lacking… but I’m working on it. So overall my MidTerm grades are going good. Especially since I’ve only had like 2 test grades in each course [which I think is a bogus grading system, btw].
Finally, God is just so cool y’all! He is really doing great things and getting a lot of junk out of my life. Of course this is a semi-slow process… but still, awesome things are happening. For one, UnAshamed has been life changing lately. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it is always really good, but lately it has been so powerful. More and more people are coming- seeing God’s love and power. AT came with us last week- so that was sweeeet. Anyway, God is just doing BIG things in Tuscaloosa, and my life, and Rand’s life. Things are great :)
So to conclude: GUATEMALA IN 10 DAYS!!! Grades and school are goin good. And God is the coolest!
Oh, one more thing- Brittany and I settled on a place to live next year. University Village it is! It’s new, nice, and has tons of amenities [pools, tanning beds, gym, security]. We are glad to finally get it all nailed down and off our shoulders.
Well, I love you all! Thanks for all the prayers and support.
