Welcome! Muli Bwanji!?!?! (Hello and how are you!?!)

Hello everyone! As many of you know, my heart spent some of the most challenging and growing two months in Malawi, Africa this summer. I am now back to my community in San Diego, serving with Flood Church and finishing my senior year at UCSD. I am excited to share with you my experiences, thoughts, and feelings as I continue to process myself what God taught me this summer. I would also love for you to share comments, as well as how I might be praying for you and your family. I will be updating posts and pictures as well as sharing with you ways in which you can continue to support and pray for the children and people that I fell in love with this summer!

Thank you so much for your encouragement, love, support, and most of all, prayers...He is Good!

Love In Him,

Encouraging Words of Christ

"I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."

Ephesians 3:16-20

Take My Hand

How is it that in 26 days I will be walking onto a plane at LAX, beginning a journey and summer that I know will challenge and mold me more into the person God has made me to be, in ways I can’t even imagine? It seems like just a moment ago that I was praying through whether to even apply or to try and follow my plans to serve in New York this summer; and now, here I am, two weeks away from finishing my first year at UCSD, my third year of college, and 26 days away from boarding a plane to Africa! On some level, I know that it is not going to become completely real for me until I am in that seat; all the planning, packing, and pre-travel worries aside, and on my way to a new place that will look and feel like nothing I have ever experienced before. My prayer right now is for God to continue to prepare my heart, in ways that only He knows I need right now.

I have already been so blessed and lifted up by the support and words of encouragement from so many, and for that, I am truly thankful. It is SO amazing to see how God is working through the hearts of others in my life, to support and remind me that this is truly where He desires me and my heart this summer!
