Waiting with Expectation

"In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly." Psalm 5:3

I covet your prayers as I near my initial departure date! I'm excited and encouraged for Kenya, time with Ginger, my mentor and the CEO of Kenya Children's Fund, the opportunity to invest in the schools, staff and children who are ultimately the future of Africa, and the solitude that will continue to draw me closer to God.  Through it all, I pray that the service would never impede the intimacy and encounters with God that He has planned for me.   
I am traveling in Europe June 7-11 then I will be home for 2 days before babysitting, attending a training for school, then departing for Haiti. Please pray for my safe travels, and that we would be the salt and the light, that we would encourage others, and bring the fervent hope and confident joy of Christ to all we come in contact with.
 "By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News." Eph. 3:7 NLT

 "He must become greater and greater, and [we] must become less and less." John 3:30

“Come to me with your ears wide open.Listen, and you will find life.  I will make an everlasting covenant with you.  I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David.  See how I used him to display my power among the peoples.  I made him a leader among the nations.  You also will command nations you do not know, and peoples unknown to you will come running to obey, because I, the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, have made you glorious.”  Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near.  Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong.  Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.  Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.  “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.  For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts."  Isaiah 55:3-9
In Him,
