Staying Busy. . .

Hi, my friends! I have been busy finishing up school , and now Summer is in full swing! I am loving time with friends, family and books. :)
                      After my youth group and I went to Atlanta to helped 7bridges give out food to the homeless, we asked our church to help us raise hygiene products and other stuff to bring back up to Atlanta to give out. It is AMAZING what God did! We ended up with hundreds of hygiene products to bring to 7bridges!! We went back up to Atlanta on the 8th and handed out lunches and hygiene. It really is an eye opening experience! It helps keep your focus on what is really important. .  His message!
                        After I had to let Aster get another correspondentI wanted to wait a little to see if God wanted me to get on the waiting list for another correspondent. Well, He made it clear He did want me to get another one! I called Compassion and got on the waiting list. I was jumping up and down excited about the little girl God had for me!!

                                         
Meet Rachel!

She is 10 years old and from Uganda!She lives with both her parents who are both peasant farmers. Some of the things she likes are art, jumping rope, singing, and listening to music! I love her already, and I can't wait to receive her first letter!!  I am so excited to see what God does through this correspondence! He is faithful!
Tuesday ( 6/18/13) my youth group, my mom, and I are leaving for Student Life camp! I went last Summer, and it was life changing! My mom has always wanted to go, so she will be going as a leader. Matt Chandler will be the speaker! He is one of my favorite, and I am SO excited! It will be on the beach too!!!!! Can you tell I am freaking out? hehe Please pray for us as we go! May our hearts be open, and peoples lives changed through His amazing, all covering GRACE!! 

All for Him,

YAY! Sounds like fun :) I just finished up school, and I will be so enjoying the time off. I just got to see an amazing children's choir from Uganda. I would say they were mostly around 10, so that is so great that you know get to write Rachel! Have fun. I know you will be such a blessing in her life. And you and your mom have fun at SL. Sounds like a blast. I wish there was one near me. Have fun! I hope you have a great time. Thanks for posting :D
