Sovereignt:y...I love knowing at the end of the day that the Lord is sovereign. Of course it is good that He is good, loving, merciful, full of grace, and so much more. But as I am preparing to leave for Russia in a few days, I cannot express to you how comforting it is to know that the Lord is sovereign!

A few scriptures that I read today and just love...

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes...

Romans 10:14-15 How thenwill they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how wil they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unles they are sent? Just as it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!


Everyday- Not to get to completeing overwhelmed as I am preparing to leave in a few days.
Spiritually- That I will continue to learn what it is to surrender to the Lord everyday and how to live that.
Goals- To make it to Russia and begin making friends, learning the language, and serve the Lord.
