well, this is the middle of week two and i'm already seeing God's faithfulness in so many ways. i've developed some great relationships with the girls here and i can't believe i've barely been here two weeks!!
the biggest thrill of my week thus far was going to the Branson High School volleyball matches on Tuesday night. as some of you know, i've been trying to get in touch with the head coach there for a few weeks and i hadn't had any success. i miss volleyball being in my life (huge understatement), so i want to get involved with the team as much as possible--especially since i know several of the girls from being kampers at K2 in the summer. needless to say, i introduced myself to the coach after the match and was pleasantly surprised with his eagerness for me to be involved. i'm going to meet with him before practice tomorrow to lay out some details and then jump in and get going. i'm pumped!!
i also talked to one of the girls about leading a small group bible study and she talked to her teammates to see if they're interested...and they are!! be praying for that. God opened some big doors this week and i want to be faithful in following through with excellence. as a side note: tuesday afternoon i spoke with several people and admitted that maybe this volleyball internship wasn't going to work out. i was completely at peace with my k-life position if that's what the Lord wanted. well, the Lord worked it out and i think i just needed to quit worrying about how things would turn out and trust that He would have me where i needed to be. so there you have it, the volleyball girls are going to be my focus for the next several months. (excited is the understatement of the century for how i feel right now).
that's really all i have for now. i just wanted you to know the biggest news of my week and how the Lord has been so faithful already. this is going to be an awesome year! i wake up each morning and just marvel at how the Lord brought me here and i have to sit and just thank Him for giving me the opportunity to devote these next few months to discipleship training. thanks for all your many prayers and emails. y'all are a huge blessing to me and i'm so thankful for each of you.
so the world may know,
live for Jesus. laugh uncontrollably. love unconditionally.
