God is Great!

WE have had a pretty interesting weekend as a family... Mainly Sunday night. My older sister Katy has been having some health problems and Sunday evening she was having alot of trouble breathing. So Dad, Mom, Grandpa Kelley, and Katy all went to Strong Memorial Hospital to get her a breathing treatment. It worked and she's home doing well.
It's neat how when we're experiencing trials, the family of GOd steps up with us... Through the "grapevine" 4 churches heard of Katy's predicament, and countless other people prayed for her... How cool is that!
Please pray that she would get better and that the doctors could figure out what's wrong with her. Thanks so much.

Passion Seminar Results

Hello Everyone!
My younger siblings and I had an oppertunity this past weekend to attend a youth seminar in Marilla, NY. It was amazing! God worked in so many ways in our hearts... The pastor talked about our passion (or lack thereof) toward God and things of God. It's almost like a fire has been ignited in our lives to live for God. As I write this, my siblings are singing praises to the Lord. My younger brother especially is really changing which is an answer to pray! So I'm just praising the Lord for this past weekend. It was life changing for me!

A Great Opportunity

I had a great opportunity last night to share my heart about my desire to go to PNG with our youth group. It was so neat to be able to tell my friends about my trip and how I got saved and everything that goes along with that. It blows my mind that I am saved! Why me? I wonder alot about that... I try not to dwell on it though. God is so awesome!!!! He has been growing our Mexican Bible study. I can't remember if I've written about that yet. We've been having an "amigo", Cesar, over for dinner for 2 years now. He sometimes brought his nephew, Adrian... Anyway, we've been trying to teach them English using the Bible. This past year, God brought a few people into our lives. Kristy has a degree in Spanish and has been translating for Dad into Spanish. Bethany is a lady who goes to our youth group and works with migrants. She's been bringing 3-4 amigos to our Bible study that we've been having every Friday night at Cafe Shiloh. So it's been amazing how God has grown our ministry to the Mexican population in our county. Please pray that more people will come to our Bible study... On average, about 6 men come every Friday night. Thanks for taking an interest in my life! Here's a picture of me and some friends in front of Cafe Shiloh.

Cap Ball

I went to a Civil Air Patrol Ball this weekend. It was so much fun! I wouldn't call it enchanting, but it was definitely a blast! I went with my friends Jacquelyn and Laura. We had a really good dinner then danced the night away. It also gave us a chance to be beautiful and feel like princesses! Here are some pictures... The first picture is me and Katy. She did all our hair and makeup. The second one is Laura, me and Jacquelyn getting ready some more. The third is me talking to mom while Laura gets goofy. The fourth is me getting makeup put on which was torture :D then the last one is me dreaming about getting beautiful. The pictures are kind of switched around so you can see the finished product first! It was alot of fun and I'm thankful that Jacquelyn invited me.

Hey All!
Wow! It's been awhile since I last wrote (big suprise)! It's weird to think where I'd be if I'd taken a different path. Or in this case, a different missions trip. To Every Tribe Ministries is leaving for PNG tomorrow. As you all know, I first applied to TETM for this missions trip. But, through some events and God's leading, I am going with NTM instead. I'm sure the team would appreciate all your prayers for their safety and effectiveness. God is amazing and I'm sure He will work through this team. Now, I'm getting excited about MY trip, wondering who will be on the team, what I will learn, and what sights I will see. It'll be wonderful! Well, that's what was on my heart. I love to hear from people so please contact me!!! My email is: God bless!
