What adventure you may be asking? Stepping out of my comfortable life here in Sherwood Park into full time mission work with S.A.M. Ministries (www.samministries.org) as their Child Sponsorship Coordinator. A BIG step, but one I’m not only ready to take it’s a step I feel like I’ve waited my whole life for! From the time I was very young one of my dreams was to have an orphanage in Africa and make a difference for children there. Now working with S.A.M. Ministries I have the opportunity to be part of bringing hope to children in Mozambique, Brazil and who knows where else! The road to get here has felt really long at times and filled with many joys, sorrows, challenges and victories but I’ve learned to live every day to the full. This is the reason I can step out on this new journey with confidence. Knowing that God is with me and trusting Him to be everything I need. I want my life to count and not just be “putting in time” (a phrase I have heard a lot. Thanks, Dad!). Don’t get me wrong…I have moments where I’m scared especially as I try to figure out how everything is going to work, wonder if I will be able to do what needs to be done and where is the money going to come from. It’s at those times I again have to remind myself to put my focus back on the One who is leading me, all things are possible with Him and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I’m excited for what lies ahead…and I invite you to follow my journey and adventures here on this blog. Another way for you to keep updated is by signing up for my email newsletter. I treasure your prayer, encouragement and support on this journey. Let the adventure begin!
