New beginnings….and buffalo

Been quite a while since I have written. Well, maybe not too long. Anyway, in case you don’t follow Facebook or twitter….

I’ve officially moved to Tennessee!

Move up around the 1st of July to my new apartment and got to meet one of my new roommates for the first time! Lara is amazing!! (ok Lara, where is my $20 for saying you are awesome?!?) We have so much in common and are a lot a like, which in some aspects may not be a good thing. 🙂 Point is, it feels like we have known each other for a while and it’s great. God knew what He was doing when He gave me this job at this time and for me to be able to move in here. Awesome!

So all moved in, the family was able to come up and be here for 2RC’s annual firework/hang out time for the 4th which was awesome. They finally got to meet my TN family. Been hanging out, trying to find my way around here and so far not too bad. Learning a lot quicker than I thought I would. Of course, a GPS doesn’t hurt.

Headed to Wyoming tomorrow morning with FUEL (2 River’s Church High School Youth Group). Getting up at 6am and pulling out of the parking lot at 8:30am. 100 students on 2 charter buses for 31 hours headed to Wyoming. Yeah, gonna be interesting. I’m going to be a leader with the Sophomore Girls and I am SOO excited about that. So this will be my first true time of being able to really get connected with them and stuff. Well, and the rest of the group too. I think our sophomore girls are around 22 for this trip. That’s crazy much! Don’t know if that made sense, but oh well. We are going to be staying in Lander, WY on an Indian reservation and there will be a few construction crews and then we are doing VBS for the kids there, which I will be helping with that. Should be a great time. Plus we get to go to Yosemite National Park as well as Jackson Hole (which I heard is a tourist trap, but should be fun). Then head back for 34 hours I think, back to TN. 10 days total. My longest mission trip. Hopefully I wont break anything. However, I do have band-aids.

So yeah, that’s basically the short version of what is going on. I think it’s time for bed, seeing as I get up in 6 hours and 30 min.

Be praying for us as we head out to WY on our mission trip, especially for protection and for God to use us as He sees fit. Thanks y’all! I’ll write when we get back!!
