Branson!?! Why Branson!?!

Well Everyone, I made it!!! Its been such a long week, and honestly, Im completely overwhelmed. Its so incredible to finally be here, I just cant believe it. 

I left Hume on Monday afternoon, and left Vegas yesterday morning. I flew into Kansas City, and spent the night. Its a nice place, and it was COLD! Then today, I was driven down to Branson. What a long car ride, but maybe it didnt feel long at all. Fun. AND, I didnt get carsick, thankfully. Oh and the best part, we saw two Amish cart/horse things driving down the highway. SO funny.  

Branson is not what I expected at all... its really green, and hilly, and its beautiful. I would take pictures for everyone to see, but my camera had an accident at Hume, and I cant have it until it gets fixed. But, I promise to get photos soon. 

Everyone here is so great, Im just overwhelmed by meeting all of these people... My cabin is nice. Its outside the main house, which is really cool. It has a baby kitchen, and its own bathroom. Loving it. 

Please email me, or send me letters, or call me, I might need some encouragement in the coming week. 

Thanks for everything!!

Leaving Hume with memories in tact

The time has come for me to leave Hume Lake! The days have been so many, its hard to really know how long I've been here unless I look at a calendar, which I dont even have. Im leaving in less than an hour and flying "home" to Las Vegas, where I will spend 2.5 days.... not quite enough time, but thankfully I have friends that will fit on one hand, including my family.

I've been so blessed to have people in my life who love me and support me wherever I go, and Michelle, if you're reading this, I thank the Lord for you everyday. Thank you for the lattes and love. ... I just pray that in Missouri I have the same kind of people like the West family to love on me.

I cant wait until Thursday, to leave LV, and head to Kansas City... bittersweet really. I just cant believe that the Lord has brought me to a place where I will be in full time ministry... its incredible, this following of the Lords plan stuff :) In the words of Abbyrae, I LIKE IT.

Please follow me as I head into Missouri for the year of a lifetime !!!!

I have my cell phone turned back on, so give me a call!!!
