One more week.

One week left.

How did that JUST happen?


I'm excited to get home and see my people again, but it's going to be really hard to leave this beautiful country.

I love Thailand, I fit really well with the culture here. I love my Pakistani family. I love the food. I love my friends I've met. I love the colorful taxis and buses. I love all the different ministries I've been working with for the past 5 months. I love all the adventures I've been going on. It's going to be so weird going back to American culture. What's it like? This is kind of a serious question.

I've moved 7 times in the last two years and there might be another 2-3 coming up once I get home. I'm ready to unpack and live in one place again.

I'm so thankful for this internship. God has taught me so much the past 5 months about His goodness and I love learning about different cultures. I love how each culture worships so differently. I think each culture has parts of God's personality and when two cultures come together, they challenge each other and learn from each other. I'm so blessed to have been able to live in this culture for 5 entire months. It's been great.

So pray for me please.
There's been big changes happening this past year, and the Lord only knows what this transition back will look like.
And pray for the church here!
God is using them in really cool ways, and they're patiently going where God leads.
And pray for my Pakistani family. They have blessed me so much since I've been here.
They are weary, but God is good.

Thank you for your prayers since I've been here, God is so good and gracious. I'm still in awe of how good He is. He's good enough that He can take broken people like us and actually use them for good things. And He doesn't even make us do it on our own, He provides absolutely everything we need to get His work done. He doesn't turn us away when we need Him, He actually wants us to be totally dependent on Him for our every need. What love. It's crazy sometimes.

Here's some pictures of my adventures lately. Thank you for praying and supporting me in this amazing adventure. God is so good.
