In less than a week I will be in El Salvador with a group of ladies and Compassion International.  20150814_131551While there we will be visiting a brand new child development center and I will also get to meet Ericka who is one of my sponsor children.

11850908_10205554545716210_904552180_nI’m soooooooooooooo excited about this new Journey I will be adventuring out on but at the same time I can’t allow myself to think about it too hard because this is something that for me would normally be waaaaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone!  

I can barely believe that in just a few short days I will be flying alone … with God … across the country to an airport I’ve never stepped foot in, meeting up with people I’ve never met before and then hopping on another plane and heading off to El Salvador!  I have never been your social type of person, I’m awkward around strangers and actually a bit of a loner.

I also know that while I’m there I may see some things that might be hard to see and though I know I won’t want to see those things I also know from past experience that its in the hard places that I tend to see God the most.

It seems like I keep finding myself in these so unlike me sort of settings more and more often here lately and like I said in the beginning I can’t let myself think about it to hard, which is what I just did!  I now I have a  few butterflies fluttering around in my stomach but I still feel really really excited about going on this journey and I can’t wait to see what God has planned!

All of this excitement is why this week my Music Monday song is ‘I Will Follow’ by Chris Tomlin

It’s really amazing the places you will find yourself when let God lead.

Now its time to get to the packing… I have to figure out how to get all of this stuff into one suitcase!

  1. I just did this same thing in February, travelling alone to Colombia. But the thing that is wonderful about a Compassion trip, is that you are travelling with like-minded people who love the same things you do…Compassion and the children being served. I pray you have an amazing time, follow where He leads, and allow Him to put you at peace as you experience this adventure!

    • I didn’t forget it the Donkey Tells James it’s all packed and ready to be hand delivered to my sweet Ericka. Thank you so much for sending it and for your prayers 🙂

  2. OOOOHH!!! That is SO exciting!!! I am SO happy for you!!! 😀 Congrats! And haha, I was going to give you the same verses that Anne just gave you. So, I’ll give them to you anyways.

    “But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.”
    Isaiah 43:1-4

    Have a wonderful trip!!

  3. You will be in my thoughts and prayers T , how wonderful for both you and the Children to share those Hugs, love the song it goes with my new Post message, yes when we Trust Jesus we have freedom from worry and fear and we never walk alone even in El Salvador.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

    • Thank you so much Anne for your prayers, I really do appreciate them and do love this scripture! I am going to be looking for Darlyn when we go to her child center so that I can give her a special hug from you. I hope your still on the mend and I will go check out your blog post in a little bit. 🙂
