Drum Roll Please....


I got my packet last night telling me I will be going to Cameroon on June 1st! My Dates of Service are August 14,2011 - August 14,2013. I will be a Small Business Advisor. My first stop is intensive training for 3 months in Bafia, Cameroon. From my understanding I will be submerged in the French language and learn about my project. The Pre-Service Training is from June 3 - August 14.

As you all know this has been a long process, so these dates are all tentative. I will keep you posted as I hear more information.

Thank you all for your prayers! I am beyond exciting! I keep looking at pictures of where I will be going and I am gitty!

We come to You...

On my first time to Pearl Church I was given a cd of worship music. On my way to work after I put in the cd. The chorus of this song by Derek Webb stuck out.

We come broken and we come undone
we come trying hard to love everyone
But we come up short in all that we do
Because we do
We come to You

This song is beautiful and the lyrics are posted on my wall in my room. This song is also constantly on repeat in my car.

Psalm 103:9-12

Short and Sweet!

I got to see snow fall for the first time! Things I love about Portland

1. Amazing coffee! Why go to Starbucks when you can try local places that they roast the coffee right in front of you?

2. New wardrobe...seeing as I am not used to weather in the 40s, I get to stock up on new boots, coats and scarves!

3. Hearing the is so relaxing sitting on the couch and looking out the windows to see and hear the rain.

4. Pearl Church...found my new Trinity in Portland and I LOVE it!

5. The leaves actually change colors! Novel idea that I still in awe of!

6. There is always something to do...I love getting lost because I find something new!

Overall Portland is amazing! Currently I am sitting on my couch listening to Christmas music. Loving life right now. No complaints!
