Camp Leader

I love my friends – the people close to me whom I trust. They make me laugh. They listen and hug me when I cry. We share deep discussions. We pray for each other. There’s a quote I love from A.A. Milne: “Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. ‘Pooh?’ he whispered. ‘Yes, Piglet?’ ‘Nothing,’ said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. ‘I just wanted to be sure of you.'” I love friends whom I am sure of.

I love where I live – out in the country with my adopted family. Sometimes I get to work with my neighbor (I call her “Goosemama”) on the farm – repairing fences, operating the tractor,

and taking care of the milk cow. I also like cello, kids, and good food.

I think it’s amazingly cool to do evangelism and discipleship with my small group. I love seeing God grow new believers. The Holy Spirit is at work in their lives and I see their hunger for God. It’s still scary and out of my comfort zone, but in a good way, and I feel happy that I get to be a part of kingdom-building for God.

Life is a journey – not always easy, but I get through it by holding onto hope.

my testimony

It’s looking better
And I’m loving the weather
Things are coming together
Now I’m smiling again

Hope is the reason
There’s a changing of seasons
And if we keep believing
We’ll be smiling again

It’s the first day
Of the best days
Of my life

All because hope
Saved my life
I survived
And now I’m living and giving
Hope showed me the way
This is the first day
Of the best days of my life

This is the day
I have been waiting so long for
It’s the chance to see
What I’ve been longing for

It’s the first day
Of the best days
Of my life

All because hope
Saved my life
I survived
And now I’m living and giving
Hope showed me the way
This is the first day
Of the best days of my life

I’ll keep on saying
That things are changing
I’ll keep believing
Hope is all we need

I’ll keep on praying
Things are changing
By faith I’ll see it
Hope is all I need

Hope
We need hope
Hope for the world
The hope of nations
For every boy and girl

He put a rainbow
In the sky
So that we would know
We don’t have to cry

So wipe your tears
Say goodbye to fear
The worst is over
And the best is here

So keep on hoping
Keep on praying
Keep believing…Yeah!!!!!!

I gonna make it
Yes I’ll make it
I’m gonna make it
if I just have hope

(“Hope Saved My Life” from the movie Unconditional, written by Aaron Lindsey)

“And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel…” (Colossians 1:21-23)
