Thank you, thank you, thank you.

They say hindsight is 20/20, but I wish I had been taking photos along the way of all the thank you cards I've mailed out to those who have given to my Kenya trip. I'd love to see them all side-by-side, each one different from the next. If I had them all in front of me right now, I'd have quite a large stack and there would be glitter everywhere.

To say the least, it's been an amazing journey and complete blessing watching friends, family, acquaintances and in some cases total strangers pour out their love and generosity into my life. I've learned a lot about trusting God over the last few years, so when I started the fundraising process, I was lucky to have the mindset that God would provide where needed. Naturally, I was not disappointed and was able to have every penny of that $3650 accounted for and then some (rest assured the excess goes to other team members, not my pockets!). Now that I've reached my goal, I can focus my prayers more on God's provision for our trip outside of finances - asking Him to show me what I need to see and experience what I need to do, removing my personal expectations of what's to come. I'm so excited to walk this path and take this trip. Less than three weeks to go!
