On My Way to the DR!

Travel this time of year can be so hectic. Maybe it makes you a little apprehensive and nervous. I admit to you today, I’m nervous.

I'm leaving for a mission trip to The Domenican Republic with Operation Christmas Child. I'm so honored to be on the team that delivers the 100 millionth shoebox. It's full of gifts and necessities for children living in poverty.

Last night, I was trying to explain to my kids why I’ll be gone and miss some of their activities. It's hard for them to understand. So I took them to the store and had them pick out huge bags of candy and bubbles to give to the children I'll get to meet.  It was an exercise in self control as well because I wouldn't them have a piece!  

I’m nervous to be gone from my 3 sunshines. worrying if I packed the right things, and excited for how God is going to change my heart in this process.  It would be amazing if you could pray for this trip, and that these children to truly feel the love of God. I’ll be checking in on the show while I’m God bringing you stories and posting pictures and stories here on my blog!
