Hi All!
So, I'm a part of this NTM mission trip group on Facebook and I stumbled across this guy's blog that is also a member. He went to Interface in 2007 and had the best pictures and movies of PNG. Needless to say, I am really getting excited about my trip! Here is the link to it: I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I appreciate you all so much!

3 Praises!

so I have 3 really cool praises: First of all, it's snowing in NY right now! I know that is a different sort of praise, but I love this time of year. At work, the Christmas candy is starting to come in and looks so beautiful!
THe second praise is that one of my very dear friends is pregnant! She got married in July and is due in late April! I am so excited for her as you can probably tell:)
The third praise is that my official liscense came in the mail today! Now, I'm really in business! God is so good!
In my last post I was confused and sort of depressed. Now, I'm encouraged in Him! I have been exploring college options and came across a program at a Bible college near my home, Elim Bible Institute. They offer an International missions program with an emphasis on medical missions. During the 2 year program, you get your EMT certification, learn basic skills such as suturing,starting ivs,taking blood, helping with childbirth, disease prevention, and giving physical exams. You also take missions courses, study the Bible, and, one class I'm excited about, teaching English as a second language. An 8 week internship at a hospital in a developing country tops off the program. It sounds like an amazing program but I'm still praying about it and will most likely change my mind a couple times before I reach a decision!
I appreciate you all so much. God bless you all tru!

3 Praises!

Hey all readers!
I am so confused right now about my future as a missionary to Papua New Guinea. I have been so excited about Interface and can't help but wonder how it will change/impact my life! But what I'm confused about is where I should go to college and what path should I pursue: Bible school or nursing? I really don't want to go to a community college and be under the teaching of professors with ungodly views. It's all so CONFUSING!!!! Dad mentioned a verse today in his sermon that probably everyone of you will recognize: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In ALL thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6. I don't go to God first for all my concerns and fears and worries. He tends to be the "last resort". I often have the attitude of "Well, I can ONLY pray"! That is so wrong! I need to be seeking His face about my future first before I go to my mom or friends.So please pray for the following things:

*That I will know and be at peace with what GOd wants for my college years

*That I will always seek God FIRST

* That I will continue to trust Him for all my needs and wants

Thanks so much for praying for me! God bless you all!

I Passed!!!!

Yes, I am now the proud owner of a driver's liscence! It is such a neat feeling to be albe to drive without my dad in the car with me. I totally bombed on parallel parking but that was the only mistake I made. How amazing is my God! So many people were praying that I pass which is a really cool feeling. So, needless to say, I am floating on Cloud 9! I still keep saying, "I can't believe I passed!" Where I took the test is very hard to pass your first time but the instructor was really lenient. He said if I'm anything like his mom, I'll just find a parking garage instead of parallel parking! Mi God i gutpela tru! Blessings to you all!

An Afterthought

I forgot to say that the name of the movie is Changed, not Flight, although you can obviously watch that one too! Enjoy!

This movie is from New Tribe Mission's website and is what inspired me to check into the Interface program. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I have!

My Prayer Cards

Well, My prayer cards came in the mail today from New Tribes Mission. I am so excited as this is just one other reminder that God will get me to PNG if it is His will regardless of funds or other obstacles. If any of you want a prayer card, just email me at and I will try to get a card to you. I'm going to begin working on a bi-monthly newsletter about my progress and will probably start sending that out in January. Things are looking so promising! I love hearing from you all. And I have 200 prayer cards to give out so please don't feel shy about asking for one ( or more!). Thanks for your interest in my quest to PNG. I appreciate you all so much. Blessings!

Flying High!

Just thought I'd share a picture of me on Labor Day that Katy took of me jumping on our trampoline. This photo captures how I feel about PNG some of the time. The Lord keeps sending money to me. A pen pal of mine sent $30 recently and told me she is praying for me. How awesome is our God! When I least expect it, the Lord encourages me in some way! It is so weird how I am undecided about my near future. I have always been a girl that knows what I want and take steps to get it. I have wanted to be a missionary nurse to Papua New Guinea for a long time. I had not realized until I started thinking about missions trips and college how many options there are. I am not sure if I should stay for Internship after Interface or go home. I am applying to a community college that starts in August and if I stay for Internship, I will get back not even a week before school starts. Also, some missionary friends of ours are coming home for a few months this next summer and I want to see them. So many DECISIONS!!!!! But the Lord knows what is best for me and is taking care of me. I recently saw a picture with this quote: " Sometimes the Lord calms the storm around His child, but sometimes He just calms the child"! I think that is what He does for me.
Please pray for me:
*That I will continue to seek God's will concerning Interface and Internship
*That I will not worry about my future because God knows!
*I am still praising God for continued provision for my monetary needs. God is great!
Thanks so much for taking an interest in my life. I really appreciate your prayers!
PS. I am taking my driver's test on Thursday and am SO nervous! I'll keep you updated of how I do!
