On Thursday night, our group hit the beach to do some evangelism. Less than an hour later, we had 5 new brothers and sisters in Christ! It is so encouraging to see God working and moving here already. Praise God also for providing a job for me. I will be following in the footsteps of my older brother and be working at McDonald's starting on Tuesday :) I have been blessed by so many of the awesome men and women of Christ here already, and I am excited to continue to grow in my relationships with them and with God.

Please pray...
*that God would provide jobs for a handful of people who have not yet found jobs
*that God would continue to move in the hearts of people here and draw them to Himself
*that we would continue to bond and build relationships with each other on project

After way too many hours of traveling, I am finally here! I left Montevideo on Monday afternoon and spent the night in St. Cloud. Then we took off at 5:00 am. At stops in Maple Grove, MN; Janesville, WI, and Xenia, OH, we picked up more people and ended up with 3 cars, 11 people, and a LOT of luggage...but we fit! We traveled straight through the night and arrived in North Myrtle Beach at 11:00 this morning. It was overwhelming to meet 91 other students and 35 staff members, but I am trusting that God is going to do amazing things here this summer. We will be doing orientation the next few days. I live in an apartment with 5 other girls a block away from the beautiful beach...we certainly lead a rough life :)

Please pray for
*A wonderful sense of community with all of the project students and especially with the girls in my apartment and Bible study.
*My job search
*The preparation of the hearts of the people we will be meeting this summer

Support Raising Update

I currently have 99% of my support raised! It has been so amazing to see God provide for me through all of my wonderful supporters! Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me, both financially and through prayer. Please continue to pray that everything goes smoothly as I prepare to leave in a little over a week.
