We’re leaving for Costa Rica in just 4 more days. Well, 3 days and 5 hours is more like it. I’ve already begun my preparations, because I know that the next four days will slip through my fingers before I know it.
I started packing today. I know four days seems like more than long enough to get packed, but really packing takes longer than you think–for me, anyway. I like to take it slow, packing a thing or two at a time, so that it really does take 4 days, sometimes more.
I’ve also started my missions journal, and I’m really loving it. It’s called “Do, Love, Walk” and it’s got some really thought-provoking questions and ideas, all based on Scripture. In addition, I’ve got a prayer booklet that I’m enjoying. While I was on my last two mission trips, God revealed to me the power of prayer in a whole new way, and now prayer is a big deal to me. God really does hear my prayers, and he really does answer them (although not always in the way I want or expect).
Well, that’s it for now, but you can expect to hear from me again before I leave on Friday (3 am to be exact!). So thanks for reading this, and look for more posts soon!
