Specific Prayer Requests

Well, I guess it's about time to post a new post. I have really been thinking about my future as a fulltime missionary nurse. The Lord has really been showing me that my heart's desire is to be a foreign missionary.... not necessarily to get a Bachelor's in nursing before I get to the field.
I'm really confused about my future right now. I'm fast approaching graduation from high school and don't really know what I'm gonna do after that. I know what I want to do, I'm just not sure if my plans line up with God's plans for me.*sigh*
The PNG trip is looking more and more real all the time. God keeps providing the funds. It's cool 'cause I haven't asked for a cent ( except to the Lord). Now, I'm asking that whoever reads this prayer for the following things concerning my PNG trip:

*The most pressing thing is that I will remain totally focused on Christ. That if or when things start getting down to crunch time, I will remember all the times God has been so faithful to provide for this trip.

*If another female student doesn't go on this trip, I will not be able to go. I really feel that the Lord has His hands on this trip, so I'm not that worried about this request....yet.

*The funds keep rolling in for this trip. Praise God!!!! (That's not a request but a praise).

Hello my darling girl,
You are scampering in the kitchen like Lenny in Ratitoui, no doubt you will be making a delectible dish. Danny is filming you doing a cooking show. Strange comment for a png post I know, yet I can't help wondering what you'll be cooking in png! And there may very well be rats scampering around on the table, if you have one, I doubt there'll be a kitchen counter! Who would have ever thought I'd have a child who would be a missionary. What a blessing to us, although so hard to lose you. Sigh...
I love you more than the Gretchen hairs you have swept up this summer. And that is A Lot!!!
