Day 59

Day 59 – November 11th, 2017

Only around 6 months until we leave Cape Verde. Some days that seems like next week and some days it seems like an eternity away.

Haven’t been able to write lately. I guess you could say I had a bit of writer’s block. Lots of things were going on and happening I was just having a hard time making myself write about it. I’m going to try to do better about that.

Today I want to give a shout out to my teammate Micah. I had a bit of a low moment and he was there for me and was very encouraging. I really appreciated it more than he knows. He told me that I was here for a purpose and that he knew God brought me here for a specific purpose.

Some days I have to remind myself of that. God did bring me here for a specific purpose. A purpose farther than just to share the gospel. But a purpose specific to me. I’m praying the Lord can reveal that purpose to me soon.

Currently still haven’t heard back from Kennesaw State. I told God if He didn’t want me there that I didn’t even want to be accepted. Part of me is totally okay with whatever God does with this. Yet, part of me is freaking out about it because I have no earthly idea what I’ll do if I’m not accepted into Kennesaw again. I try to find peace in the fact that my heavenly Father knows what I’ll do and what path I’ll take and He will reveal it to me in His precious time.

I haven’t really missed home lately, but I have really been missing American food and snacks so badly. The main thing is Zaxby’s. I would kill for Zaxby’s. Literally. Or McDonald’s fries.. RIP miss y’all. I miss Rancho Grande SO BAD. Hopefully my parents will bring some salsa from there when they come in February. I miss being able to put Oliver Farm Sunflower Oils on pretty much everything you eat or cook. The snacks (junk food) here just isn’t the same either. I am terribly missing salt&vinegar chips, oatmeal creme pies, some good ole beef jerky, DORITOS omg, especially zebra cakes and cosmic brownies. I miss my Nanna’s homemade blackberry jelly with crunchy peanut butter, too.

Speaking of my Nanna, I got a package she sent me this week and I am so so thankful for it. I loved everything in it. I could have eaten it all the day I got it, but I’m trying to hoard it to make it last longer…

  1. You would not be there right now if God didn’t have a reason. You will discover His purpose in time. Continue praying about it. You should also be getting our care package in the next few days. Others are wanting to send stuff too so I’m glad you included specific things you wanted. Really missed our Monday FaceTime this week. Your voice and seeing you once a week makes my life more bearable without you. I love you so much and I’m so proud of the young woman you have become and are still becoming.


  2. You enjoy what you are doing so keep up the good work. Don’t worry about school, I’m sure it will work out for you.
    As for the jelly and peanut butter, we will see what we can do about that.
    Love and miss you.


  3. Hey doll. So good to read your post. Have been praying for you. Don’t worry about your future, God’s got it all planned out. Just enjoy your time there as you are so very blessed to be able to take this journey at such a young age. Just marvel in the blessings you are giving and receiving! You were so brave to step out in faith and let God lead you and he will continue to do so. I am glad too that you mentioned specific snacks. I told your mama I want to help with sending you a package. You take care of yourself. Luv you, Aunt Jimmie Lynn
