I'm not sure if anyone ever reads this, but I just wanted to write a quick update.
The Lord is faithful. That's all I have to say. The Lord was completely 100% percent faithful to me and my two weeks spent in my favorite country, The Dominican Republic. I felt the spirit move in my life there the way I hadn't felt in a long time. I felt the Lord's presence and guidance active in my life in such a sweet way. I just felt like the Lord met me in such a sweet sense of fellowship in my time there. He provided so much, and I learned so much about how faithful of a God He is. I was absolutely blown away by the schoolhouse, and the women and men who walk through those doors everyday to teach, minister, and love on the children of the DR. The friends that I made, and the old friends I got to see were some of the greatest times I've had in a long time. I felt so loved, and comfortable every second that I was visiting, and I know that without a doubt in my mind, I'll be back to that place sometime this summer. I love the DR, Makarios, and my friends who are faithfully serving the Lord in that place. I could not have scripted a better two weeks for my life. It's exactly what I needed for a refresher of the Lord's faithful will and goodness in my life.
In other news, I'm going to be helping facilitate groups from the Austin Stone who head down to the DR in the future. Someday, I may even be able to lead my own group. The two things that I love the most have collided to form one big ball of awesomeness. Not only do I get to serve my church and get more involved there, but get to serve as they goes to serve Makarios. Holy stinking cow, it's so awesome. Again, the Lord is faithful to my prayers.
Also, as I've been praying for over a year for someone to disciple me, and the Lord has faithfully provided someone to be that light in my life. I will be discipled by a very dear friend of mine, who also works at the Stone. I'm SO excited for what the Lord has in store for our relationship as she mentors me as I grow closer to Christ. Again, the Lord is faithful.
This month has been one of the best months of my entire life. I feel the Lord alive and working in my life, and I've tasted and seen great community over the past month or so that's been so so good. I know the Lord has big things in store for the rest of the year. My prayer is that all the glory would be given to Him, a King that will reign in Glory Forever.
The Lord is faithful, and nothing is impossible without Him. He conquered the grave for crying out loud! I pray that my passion for Him would only grow stronger each day of my life. I choose Christ over this world. Amen.
Faith. Hope. Love.
