Nica and Twins

This week has been a rough one. One thing after another. This should have been a week of preparation and excitement, instead it was full of lesson plans and projects. I could feel the enemy in full force trying to steal my joy. But I didn't let that happen. Even though it was a crazy week I made it. And I still have my joy! I'm about to head to the airport to go to Nicaragua. I can't even begin to tell you all of the emotions in my head. One minute I'm so excited I can't stand it. The next in crying because I'm scared to go. The unknown scares me. The food scares me. Not seeing/talking to my family+Adam scares me. But I know that God is with me. He always is. And even though I have felt the enemy this week. I have felt god even more. Probably more than I ever have in my life. I hope that I'll be able to find Internet somewhere down there. But if not I'll just update when I get back. Maybe I'll update later today in the airport..who knows. Please pray for safety and that the Lord's presence will be with me and my team.

I love the devo in Jesus calling (btw--most amazing devotional EVER. Go buy it. Now) today. My favorite part: "Knowing that your future is absolutely assured can free you to live abundantly today." I will live abundantly today. Tomorrow. And forever.

And also--my cousin had her baby girls yesterday!! Adam and I got to meet Ava but Lila is in the NICU. She swallowed a lot of fluid so they have to get it out. She should be out in 3-5 days. I love them so much already. I am very happy they came before I left for Nica :)
