winding down and gearing up

kamp officially ended last wednesday and we packed everything up until next summer. kind of crazy to think that we unpacked it in May, had thousands of kids pour through those gates, and then we packed it all back up and left. crazy! i'm attempting to adjust back to life outside the kamp bubble now. i have a week until i start my job, so my mission this week is to get settled and unpacked and organized at home so that i can attempt to do the same at the offices when i go in next monday. big mission! i'm tired, but i'll get rested before i start the work grind.
on a different note, i got to see a lot of my institute friends at one of the girls' weddings in Arkansas last night so that was a blessing. i miss those friends so much, and now we really are headed in different directions across the globe. sad to think that this time last year we were all preparing to move to Branson. Kat left for Texas from the wedding, so our goodbyes happened there and they were NOT fun. i hate goodbyes like that when you know you won't see the other person for a really long time. she's such a huge part of my life and has been in it daily since last september, so it's going to take some adjusting. kamp helped a little since we were at different kamps, but even then she was only a 20 minute drive away as opposed to a 10 hour drive. we both have a lot to learn this year and will be stretched, so i'm excited for her k-life job and my MATC job. our next visit will just be that much sweeter.

Ally is coming to visit tomorrow on her way back to Oklahoma, so that will be incredible. i haven't seen her since January and for most of that time she's been in Spain and we've been communicating through Skype which is patchy at best. can't wait to see her and get some play time and catch up time with her.

that's really all i have for now. it's a slow week getting ready to hit the ground running again with my job. prayers are appreciated. it's slightly overwhelming to think of what i'm taking over, but i know i can do it. it'll just be an adjustment process.

have a great week, and i pray that the Lord blesses you through your relationships the way He has blessed me through mine.

so the world may know,
bekah <><

live for Jesus. laugh uncontrollably. love unconditionally.
