God is Faithful

  Good morning, everyone.  It's a beautiful rainy morning.  It's funny, our pastors wife was praying for Spring time weather in Summer.  Thank you God for being faithful to answer our prayers!

  Anyway, last week I went to Youth Camp. First off, I had a lot of fun and made some new friends. But best of all, God showed up.

  I wasn't very excited about going to camp this year. I didn't have any specific expectations. I just wanted revelation, which He gave me.
  He showed up the first night and didn't cease fire until I left Saturday.
  He worked on so much. Some of the things are too personal to share on-line, but He worked on loneliness, humility, purity, and love.

  I think it was Wednesday night. I just stood there and worshipped, enjoying His glory. I want to thank Him for that.  A couple of the nights, I was overcome by my love for Him.  I kept saying, " I love my Jesus." I guess you could say I fell more in love this week.

  I do want to share something that happened Thursday night.  The speaker was Randy Lawrence.  If you have never gotten to hear him, he is an excellent speaker. Thursday night he spoke on purity. Afterward, he asked for anyone who needed restoration of purity to come up. I went up and gave God all that was on my heart. I didn't feel anything, but I had to trust that he had restored me.

 That's something that I love about God. He is faithful. If you call on His name, He will answer. You may not hear Him, or feel Him, but He is working. And He who started a good work in you is faithful to complete it.

 In the last couple of years, God has made it a point to impress upon me that He is faithful. He loves me so much, and as my father, He wants to take care of me and bless me. He is, was, and always will be faithful to me. Even to the end.

Phlebotomy, Suturing, and Youth Camp

   Goodness, its been a long time since I wrote! I'm even rusty on my typing! ~smile~

   A lot has been going on. Our dance, which we performed last week, was a success. But it was a success in a way we didn't expect. Let's just say that God showed us we don't have to be perfect to minister to other people.

   This past week, my brother and I attended Freeman Health Academy. We learned CPR, basic First Aid, basic phlebotomy (taking blood), and suturing (giving stitches). We got to "scrub in" like doctors do before surgery, went through a triage simulation (determining which patients are in need of immediate medical attention in the case of a disaster), and an ER simulation. I really enjoyed the ER simulation and CPR training. I can now help save lives. It's a pretty neat thought.

  This week is full of cleaning and preparing for my great grandma Mamie who's coming to visit along with our cousins. My great grandma is 91 and still kickin'! She went bowling just last week. My mom is really excited!

  Hillsong Church in New York is coming this week to do an event called the Hope Conference at our church.  We're going to be helping with that. I'm excited!!

  Then, next week is youth camp. I'm excited.  I'm not exactly sure what to expect, but I'm going expecting to encounter God. Again, I'm sooo excited! It's going to be great!

  So, since I'm going to be so busy, I probably won't write for a couple of weeks. God bless you all and be with you!
