Photos from Home

This is actually an old pic of me and Bri at my going away party. I told her I would post it on here!
This is Noah getting baptized! I'm so proud of him!!

Brinks and I had a photo shoot, I don't think he really liked it...what do you think?

Harrison and I attended Ranger's Opening was so much fun but cold!!

Jodi, Gage, me and Addi at Granny's house. Jodi and I look so much like sisters, but we're only cousins! This is what I've been doing while home, just trying to fill the time before my visa comes in for Russia. Hopefully, I'll be able to leave within three weeks!

Well, my time at home is going to be a little longer than originally planned. I was supposed to leave yesterday, the 9th, for Russia, but I've yet to receive my invitation so I'm still here in Texas. I'm trying to make the most out of my time, and so far I have. I've gotten to speak to several groups, and I've been able to take care of extra paper work, like obtaining a 2nd passport. Yes, I said a 2nd passport, which it is legal by the way to have two active passports, but it's a pain to figure out how to get a second one issued!

Words that I've heard a lot and I've said this a lot the past two weeks are about this all being a part of His plan. I know this is all a part of God's plans. He has a purpose for allowing me to stay longer in Texas than originally planned, but I'm ready to go! :)

So, I do NOT ask for prayers on patience, because I believe that I am already experiencing enough situations that are teaching me patience. I would rather ask that you pray for me to use this time wisely, and that when I do finally leave, I will be completely ready to go, without any unfinished business or things completed half way. Please also continue to pray for the three people that God has for me to initiate and cultivate relationships during the next two years. Pray that I will be able to determine who those people are, to find the ones that are truly seeking from those who only want an American friend to teach them English (aka English Leeches).

BTW, if you are close to me in Texas, and you have a group that you would like for me to speak to, within the next two weeks, please feel free to email me
