This time it's in the US! Two weeks ago when I was at Alpenfest with my family, Paul Block, the youth pastor for the First United Methodist Church in Gaylord asked me if I could be the female chaperone for their mission trip to the Adirondack Mountains in New York. It was a last minute request, as they have not been able to find a female chaperone from their church. The lady who usually goes is having her gall bladder out, and Paul's wife Lisa is staying home with their 7 month old baby girl. Since Paul and Jeff have been friends for a long time and Jeff was a youth leader under Paul, Paul felt lead to ask me. I'm honored he did. I know this is a God because last night at the meeting everyone was excited that I was going and one girl even did the "Yes" thing! And all doors were open for me to be able to go!
I'm hoping to pick up a small digital camera of some sort to take since ours died a couple of weeks ago. And I need to get some good tennis shoes for working and hiking!
This is going to be a totally different experience for me than Nigeria was. I can't wait! I think we will actually get to do some ministering to the un-saved!
