Hello World

So, this is my first blog post ever. I've never done this before, and it kind of feels like i'm talking to myself, but hopefully this will become a great way of displaying God's glory with the world. Where to begin. Lets start out with the reason I created this blog. This summer, I will be spending two months (June and July) living in Oaxaca, Mexico as a short- term missionary. I really don't like the word missionary because as a believer, I should be "missional" everywhere I go, and wherever I am. However, this summer, God is giving me the perfect opportunity to focus on solely him and his purpose. I won't have school as a distraction, or any of the hustle and bustle of every-day life getting in the way of what matters most. Not to mention that I will also be on a partial technology fast this summer. I will be leaving my cell phone, iPod, and macbook at home. As attached to these items that I am, I'm actually really excited to discover life without them. Luckily, I will have a few hours of internet time each week specifically designated for blogging and updating you all of all that's going on throughout the week. The count down is exactly 17 days until I leave my hometown of El Paso, Texas and embark on a journey that I never would have imagined happening to me. Here's my life-verse that's keeping me going right now. Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." As scary and exciting this all is, all I can do is trust God though it all! ...So how's that for my first blog post? (;
