13 Years Ago This Week...12:40 AM
...I was 18 years old and setting off for an experience that forever changed my life. I moved to Tyler, TX to go through Youth With A Mission's Discipleship Training School. The 6 years I lived in Tyler were such rich times where I began lasting friendships, met my husband, and saw God change me into someone who is confident in who I am in Christ. Those years took me on adventures to Azerbaijan, Haiti, India, Thailand, Mongolia, Norway, South Africa, N. Africa, and all over the USA where I did everything from teaching English to working in refugee camps, from kid's clown ministry to cleaning toilets, as a single, married, and pregnant (sadly, that's why I still can't do Thai food) missionary!
I am so thankful for that decision that God led me in. It has definitely forever changed my life and started this amazing journey that led us here to S. Africa. Isn't it awesome to stop for a moment, look back on your life, and see the amazing things God has done?
