Plane Ticket!!

Today I bought my plane ticket to the DR!!! Praise the Lord for His provisions in bringing my support in so steadily this month. At the beginning of August, it felt like I still had so far to go, and now here I am, plane ticket in hand, leaving in one week.

That's right. I'll be leaving for the DR on Sunday, August 31.

Thank you so much to everyone who has and is continuing to support me through prayer and financial donations. And I would appreciate your continued support and prayer as I am still lacking a little in funding. If you are interested in financially supporting me, please do not hesitate to contact me, or you may send checks to the following address:

Thanks everyone!! Les amo mucho!!

a final farewell

These past two weeks I had a chance to visit one last time with some family and friends before I head for the DR. I started my adventure off in San Luis Obispo, staying with my dear friend, DeeDee, and spending time with my brother and his friends. Over the weekend, my whole family converged in Atascadero at my grandparent's house for a relaxing time of visiting. From there I headed up north, where my best friend, Marissa, and I went camping at Mt. Tam for a few days. After that I was able to spend a few more days with her in Santa Rosa before heading back to Mariposa.

It was a very enjoyable trip, and a much needed time of visiting with dear friends, as this summer has been quite lonely and draining with all my traveling. It was also such a blessing to have my whole family together for a few days.

So now I am back in Mariposa waiting on support..... Waiting on the Lord to bring this journey to completion in His timing.

Thanks for the prayers.
