I am seventeen. Since I was little, I thought I was going to Africa. What I was going to do there, I wasn't sure. What I was always sure of was that God was calling me there. Recently, maybe a year and a half ago, maybe two years, I started questioning if He still wanted me in Africa. I started praying, A LOT. Like, more than I already was. My brain injury completely healed approximately a year ago, and I was still asking. Then I heard that still small voice. More like, I became interested in the Africa Mercy. I became sure He wanted me there, but I couldn't see it. I spoke up tonight, and we figured out that it's possible. I can see it now. Sometimes God tells us what He wants, and we have to choose to follow him, no matter if we see it or not. I have, in less than 24 hours, become certain of what I am doing. I am going to get a teaching degree. I am going to follow Him. I am going to live on the Africa Mercy. Two minute showers and all.
- I am 19 years old now. It seems like time is going fast, and I am not always sure how to handle it! I started college August 2014. I am studying psychology at North Central University, meeting new people, and drawing closer to God with each step I take. Life is not a destination, it is a long journey. I am excited to see what God has in store for my life, and I hope you will join me as I find out!

OK. I don't remember if I posted about this last year. Mom has started making it a point to spoil us on Valentines day. Kinda nice if you ask me. So, this year was no different. She showered us with gifts, and a special dinner. It was a really nice day. She even overcame the obstacle of Angelica's allergies, and my sister got a nice cup filled with the only kind of candy she can eat. Dinner, was DELICIOUS!! We had a marinated steak, with collard greens, and baked potatoes. I will leave you with a picture.
