So last Saturday I left my house in Manahawkin, NJ at 8:10am to start my adventure at Ywam. I guess this is the best place to start. I walked into the airport (La Guardia International Airport) at 10:45 am, and I grabbed my ticket to leave. Right after that I said goodbye to my parents, and I started to cry. I am not ashamed to say that I started to cry, and I accept that I did. I mean this is the first time I have ever left home for more then 10 days, and this like 2000 miles from home. (I am so easily distracted when I’m writing)
The plane fight was kinda long, it was about 4 hours to take get to Denver International Airport. I had a 4 hour layover there. That was not fun, i landed in like terminal 18 or 19, and my leaving terminal was 86. If you have never been to Denver Airport it’s about a mile and a quarter to walk from one end to the other. I arrived with plenty of time to catch my next flight into Kalispel airport. There a man named Kris picked me up, and we took the 30 minute drive into Lakeside.
The next morning was Sunday, and we didn’t have to go to church or anything, it was just a day to start to meet everyone. We sat in the hallway in our dorm for 5 hours just talking about everything, and it was so much fun. We all bonded right away.
Monday we woke up at 6:20 am. (yes we get up that time everyday) Our first week is different then all the other weeks. We had orientations and all that normal stuff rules. Then that night we got right into lesson one.
This first week was about intercessory prayer and hearing God’s voice. It was one of the hardest weeks of my life, but so worth it. The things that I have learned this week are amazing. I was going to post my notes, but there are 16+ pages of them. If you want to know more, when I get home, I can just show you them.
I am going to close this blog posting with a few comments about what I learned this week.
1. God is real. I know that that sounds so cliche, but it is so true.
2. God is faithful. I am already starting to see changes in my life, and God is just awesome like that.
3. I am going to BRAZIL!!!!!!! I don’t have a location yet where I am going, but I am super excited to get to go there.
The last thing is I would like to ask anyone if they need prayer for anything. Whether you are a Christian or your not, If you just stumble upon this blog, I would love to pray for you. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you all have a blessed night/day tomorrow. Miss you all lots
