Daring to Dream
My dream and call is becoming more of a reality every day. I ask that you will partner with me in prayer as I make my application to Lutheran Bible Translators. I just sent in the first part of the application for candidacy trusting the Lord for His guidance. I praise Him for laying this burden on my heart, and I'm grateful for the grace He has poured out on me in allowing to know my call. It's hard to believe that in six months, I will be graduating from Northwestern; and in about eight months, I will be moving to Texas for additional linguistic training, Lord willing! I have had countless frustrations and feelings of inadequacy, but Christ is my refuge. I am hesitant in posting the bulletin, because my plans are not set in stone, but I NEED prayer. There are many decisions to be made, and I get confused. For example, do I want to partner with WMPL or Wycliffe? Where should I go? Who should I go to? Pray against Satan's attacks and that I do not allow him any footholds in my life. I'm so excited to know what God has in store, so it's difficult to keep my mind on present tasks such as Greek and Hebrew studies and the like. Thank you for all the support and advice I have received, and please keep them coming.
