This past week has been full of fun activities (Hershey Park, Kings Dominion, B.Co. Youth Fair, and babysitting), but with each day comes another hard good bye. As people see me for the last time the same question is always asked, “Aren’t you scared?” Without hesitation my reply has always been, “No, not one bit!” When I first dreamed of applying to study abroad in January 2016, I prayed and told God that it was all in His hands. I specifically remember asking God to give me peace if studying abroad was the right thing to do. Since that wintry day, I have not felt the slightest bit of uneasiness. There is no need to be nervous or scared, because I confidently know that God has everything in control. This upcoming year will be full of difficult and frustrating times, but I know that God is my protector and comforter. Please continue to pray for me to not lose sight of God’s power and to be brave even when I cannot think of all the French words to say.
“When I am afraid, I will trust in you.”- Psalm 56:3
