i wanted to let the blog world know:
i am going to Coffee Fest this weekend in NY.
i finished my first week of insanity and i feel great.
i bought tickets to texas, and while i am there i am scoping out competition for my coffee shop.
i love my job(s) and am possibly getting a temporary third job.
the Lord is surprising me each day.
i may be broke but i am so happy. money is nothing.
and although where i am living is not ideal and may not be my favorite place, i love the people that surround me every day and i am so lucky to be where i am.
embrace where you are. it’s where you are supposed to be.
(twenty two by twenty two update will come a bit late this week… SORRY!)
As most of you know I was in Uganda for the last few weeks. I got back Thursday night and have finally pulled myself to the computer screen to write a blog post about it. I think I was so hesitant to write a post because there is no way to put in words the time I had there. We spent many nights at crusades and speaking at schools and churches about the love of Christ. Just meeting the beautiful, welcoming, simplistic people in the towns we visited left me humbled to a new extent. We were able to see many people healed and released from bondages of sin and witchcraft.
Here is an excerpt from my journal entry from July 28th:
“I am amazed by the simplicity of life here. No hustle and bustle. No distractions from technology. Just life at the simplest I’ve seen it. No complaints. No judgement. Just life, the way it is supposed to be lived.”
I wish I could go into every detail of the trip, but that would be a very, very long post that no one would read. So please join me in continually praying for the people in Uganda and their salvation. Pray for hope and peace that passes all understanding. God is actively working in the hearts of the Ugandans.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Fuel for the day.
God is love.
Just two short months until I return to Uganda. I can’t even express my excitement in words or on paper. It is going to be amazing!
Today my dear friend, Mason Gravely along with Michael Cruz and Jenson Martinelli set off on month long bike tour to Maine. They are biking north to raise money for The Gospel House located in Kampala, Uganda. Last summer Mason and his friend, Paul Austin biked from Alaska to Florida with the same goal. This morning the three took off in hopes of raising $10,000 for the house. I am so proud of them. Be praying for the three guys who left today. I will be returning to The Gospel House this summer with Mason and 5 others from our university to finish the Gospel House. God is going to do great things through this tour and our trip to Uganda!
Mason and his fellow intramural basketball teammate! (They won the championship!)
