CLOUD 9


I just received the most exciting e-mail EVER!

I GET TO GO ON A CAMPUS CRUSADE SUMMER TRIP TO SAN DIEGO!!!!!!!!!

I am sitting on cloud nine right now! Exams have been getting me down in the dumps and the fact that I'm leaving all my amazing friends for almost 4 months makes me so so sad but...
this is THE MOST AMAZING, SURPRISING, EXCITING THING I'VE HEARD ALL WEEK!

This year I have started to grow closer to God then I've been in a long time. He has shown me how to live a life in his image and how to stay strong in my faith through all of life's ups and downs. One of the things I've struggled with is evangelism because I tend to be cautious when it comes to witnessing to people because I don't want them to feel judged, pressured, criticized etc. But I know this trip is going to help me so much when it comes to witnessing. Heres is what my leader sent me in an e-mail:

For the past few months we have been praying for you and the other students participating in the San Diego Adventure. We’re excited that you have pursued what we trust will be a life changing week in San Diego.

This project has been designed with you in mind. Our primary desire is that you grow in your relationship with God and fall more in love with Him. Nothing is more important than your relationship with God. We will strive to create an environment on the project that encourages this.

The mission of the Campus Ministry is "to turn lost students into Christ-centered laborers." In light of this mission, we will help you develop as a Christ-centered laborer and learn to minister to others as an overflow of your walk with the Lord. We will focus on helping you to become more effective at sharing the gospel with non-Christians.

You will have a key part in making the project successful as you come with a teachable attitude and a heart to grow in your faith.


As you can see, this is going to be an amazing trip.


The only thing that's holding me back is the money but luckily I have amazing parents who are willing to let me go! I am so excited! I sincerely believe that there is a reason God gave me a spot on this trip! I can't wait to meet everyone from all of the different colleges, grow closer to God, go to california and completely step out of my comfort zone.


I'm STOKED.

Please pray for me that I can raise the money to go on this trip and that everything will work out!


(...I knew there was a reason I couldn't find a job this summer! haha)
