Last Post from USA...

So, I leave in an hour and a half and am finally packed- each suitcase weighing a little less than 50 lbs! I was doing my devotions this morning and the Lord told me very clearly through the book 1,000 Gifts that no matter the fears I face, I can have the ability to trust Him because He agreed to go through the cross and so much more for me- it should be an honor to do this for Him. I have to say, I am honored to take this trip. I am honored to have people come behind me and support me financially. But, packing? It is the thing I usually despise about travelling! But, today, my mother walked me through the entire process. Usually I stubbornly do everything on my own and get frustrated because there is not enough time and I procrastinate too much. But today I could enjoy packing. I was at peace, I had someone to talk to, plus I had a short trip into town with my dad. I didn't feel like I had to rush and really enjoyed my last day with my family. I will miss them, it has been a good summer. But now, it's time to take the next step and it involves a long plane ride! God is with me and I am so blessed to have the support of your prayers! Next post in Thailand!!!!    


  1. Love you so much, and are praying for you! Looking forward to see what the Lord does through you.

  2. We're looking forward to hearing how the Lord continues to use you. Praying for you as you travel.

  3. My dear Emily, It was an honor to help you get ready yesterday! You know how much I love to iron. It was my little way of being a part of your great adventure. I know that God has many new experiences planned for you. I can't wait to hear about them! Love you much, MOM
