I'm going to Africa 2013, I have no idea where.  Maybe not knowing would drive you crazy, it kind of does to me because I am a planner.  However, this one I am handing over to God. I feel like I will know where I am supposed to go at some point.  So until then, I am preparing to go...

This is my overseas mission schedule:
Oct 2011 raising money for 4-more doing the Detroit Marathon
August 2012 El Salvador with Empty Buckets with LWI
Dec 2013 Africa... 

I'm excited about going to Africa, but I am also excited about going to El Salvador.  I'm excited about 4-more!

Did I mention that I hate the unknown?  And I haven't really done much research on either.  I know I have money to raise, fund-raising for El Salvdor, but I really haven't done that much research.  I figure I'll find out what I need to find out when it's time (good thing others aren't depending on me for info, huh?). 

This is kind of what I figure right now...

I'm depending on God to show up.  He always does.
I'm depending on God to meet my needs.  He always does.
I'm depending on God to speak to me.  He always does.

I could really screw things up. I always do (when I do things without Him or His counsel)

So I'm reading, praying, running (well not this week, it's too hot), and depending on God to meet my needs.

So I might show up in El Salvador/Africa with clothes, my bible, and a heart for Jesus, and whatever information that someone gives me.  Arms for hugging.  What else could I possibly need?

Ok, someone remind me of this post when I get a little closer to departing... because I might be freaking out.

Maybe you will need to come to Africa with me. ;) Maybe just maybe. God has a plan. Thanks for having a willing heart.
