Back to California.

Leaving Guatemala was so difficult for me. Saying goodbye is not my forte. I really miss being there and being with the people I have grown so close to. I have come back with a mission on my heart and that is to pay everything off and move to Guatemala. Crazy? Yes! I want to give it all up, the luxuries, the comfortability and the things that I am so familiar with. It all started with a prayer, "I want to live in the center of your will." The more I prayed that, the more I knew and felt confident that I was being led to Guatemala. I have a lot that I need to pay off and it will take me over 2 years to do it on my own, but through faith, I know it can be less than a year. Last night we had a night of prayer at my church and I told God that I would love to be able to move in 6 months. Wow! It's so crazy! I need to start fundraising soon. 

Being back feels like a dream. I want to wake up and be back in Guatemala. I will say that it feels good to be with my parents. It was so neat seeing my mom and giving her a big hug as I walked out of the airport. Family is what tugs at my heart. I know that I will miss seeing them and have those funny talks with my mom. I also cannot ignore God's calling. I hear Him so loud and clear and I want to chose to be obedient to His call. 

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight". (Proverbs 3:5, 6 NIV)
