A short overview of my last years occurrences..

-In light of the fact that we don't have forever to live this life and that none of our tangible possessions will last, one thing has become most important to me- Relationships. 

-Therefore, I changed my major to Counseling/ Psychology. I knew that even though my future is unknown, this would help me in wherever I end up. This is what I am passionate about, learning about people. 

-The past few years the passion has grown in my heart to help the poor and needy. With my switch to counseling this passion also related to helping women, or young ladies, find freedom and healing in knowing Christ and finding their identity through this avenue. 

- I have come to grips  with the fact that I will never be able to gain control on the circumstances in my life and where I will be led; however, I have been given certain passions for a reason and they fit together piece by piece like one big puzzle. 

-The pieces of my ideal puzzle included helping people find healing, help them help themselves, and build relationships through showing love in actions. 

-I began for to search for opportunities to serve overseas this summer in a capacity that involves my passions, and I found the organization Rahab's Rope. 
(Check out their website !

-So this summer I will be going to Goa, India- May 20th to July 8th. 
And I hope it will be all that I hoped for and dreamed of! 
As I seek to do something with all the love and life I have experienced this past year...

"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
   because the LORD has anointed me
   to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
   to proclaim freedom for the captives
   and release from darkness for the prisoners,
 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
   and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn..."
Isaiah 61:1-2
