First official day in kona!

So today was my first day in Kona at DTS.. it started off as most do, everyone scrambling to find a familiar face trying to make friends and wondering why they are here.. and today we learned that we are here to become completely dissatisfied with where we are , to become uncomfortable so God can come meet us and use us and direct us to where we need to be!  Most of the day was filled with welcomes and what the next three months in kona are going to look like!! It sounds as if we will find out very soon where we will be going for outreach!!  I need sleep tonight but i will post more later but i just wanted to say I have arrived and keep praying for me!!

Less then 2 months...

In about 60 days I will be leaving for Ywam.  I am doing a DTS called Engage!! God placed this on my heart in august and it took me till about 2 weeks ago to press send.  It was one of the hardest things for me just to press send.  Many friends and family members who I talked to about my struggles with letting go and answering Gods call would reply with 2 words everytime "PRESS SEND".  It seems like such a simple thing to do, yet for me so hard!!

I have talked about going away for almost 2 years,  and the time came where it was the only logical next step.  Me being a procrastinator kept trying to think of ways to postpone it again but everything in my path screamed GO!!! So I came home one night and pressed send!! I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders... a moment of peace!

This past week was huge...I have been affirmed by everyone I know that this is where I should be, where GOD wants me to be!! I got my acceptance letter and yesterday I booked my flight.  Its now set I am going.

I have two months to prepare myself to leave.  With a list a mile high of things I need to do...I am going to be in Hawaii with a team, a soon to be family of amazing people, to learn about what God has planned for us... How can this not be a good thing!!!

Love you all!!
