Preparing for Haiti... I'm rambling a bit!

Well…  I am two weeks out and kind of nervous.  I am going to Haiti but to a place I’ve never been with people I’ve never met.  This must be God… because “comfort zone Margie” would never do this… I am bringing my favorite skirt  <3 span="">

I’ve been kind of nervous because I don’t have any capri’s or shorts after last summer.  So I had to go buy new ones…  I had gone to Dress Barn but didn’t find anything… and today I finally made it to JCPenney after a great dinner with Samantha.  Because I haven’t really lost any weight in the last couple months, I wasn’t really sure what size I’d wear…  Thankfully I didn’t have to go a size up.
There is a lot going on in my heart, I am nervous about going and doing something I’ve never done before… But I know God called me to do this, and I am going to see a part of Haiti that I’ve never seen before, and even though I am nervous, I AM EXCITED!  I am excited because I feel like not only the gifts that God has given me will be used for His glory, but of so many others…

My couponing friends collected nail polish, vitamins, deodorant…  Using their talents and time to help others that they will probably never meet in heaven, but they know it’s for God’s glory!

Along with my new shorts, I have pulled out my favorite skirts. 

It’s getting real people!  I am excited about next week when I pack up my suitcases with my friend Rachel (she’s coming over).  We will lay everything out and packing and praying…

I have a favor to ask of you… My readers…

Before we leave:
Can you please pray for me and my team?
Please pray:
 that God go before us and prepare hearts to feel the love of Jesus when we get there.
 that no one gets hurt or sick before we leave.
 That God speaks to our heart in devotions and reading
That God provides everything we need to go
That we are focused on God
That He speaks to our hearts
That we draw close to Him
Team unity

Also before I leave…  I am focusing on my eating – eating whole foods before I leave and juicing (but I will add some fruit to mostly veggie juice – I tried drinking all veggie juice and I almost puked!).  I’d love to just lose 5 lbs before I leave but mostly I just want to be healthier before I go. I also have to start weaning myself off of iced tea.  I will not have the option to drink 4 teas a day.
So that’s it… just preparing my heart and body for my trip.

Sending love!

Here I am! Send me!!
