The Cold Hard Truth

We had a crazy few days of travel, including delayed flights, one missed flight, and lost bags that just arrived today!!! We have been here 2 full, great days. Our hosts, Mike and Kay, are incredible!! I feel so welcomed and loved. We have met most of the girls who were rescued from the bars and are now working for Samaritan Creations. The day we got here (Sunday) was one of the girl’s first day out of the bar work. This ministry had been building a relationship with her for 2 years and that was the day she decided to leave her past behind and begin a new life. It was incredible being able to be here to welcome her into her new life.


BUT for me this has not been an easy journey so far. I can take all the best pictures and make it look like I’m having the time of my life. But in reality, this is hard. I miss home. I miss American food. I miss my family. Ultimately, I miss being in my comfort zone. This is not an easy transition. But what I do know for sure is I am right where God wants me. You cannot live fully for God and expect to be always comfortable. I’m not sure this will get any easier, but it is not supposed to be easy or comfortable. But it’s where God wants me, and He is wrecking my world already. I am learning to look to God in all circumstances. And though it’s hard, I am thankful for many things. Our team leader, Ashley, and my team of girls are incredible and always supportive. They are great examples and help me strive to be a better person and a better Christian. I am most thankful for the GREAT and always faithful God I serve.


I love you all so much!!

Thank you for your love, support, and prayers!!!
