It has been a nice blend of busyness and relaxation.
This is the busyness. The last three weeks have been filled with 12 personal meetings as well as the opportunity to share with 2 groups about what the Lord is doing in my life and the ministry with Harvest Aviation that I will be involved in. It has been amazingly exhausting, haha! I am blessed to have this time and so many close friends who have come along side me and supported me in various ways over the last 12 years. Thank you to all that have taken time out of their schedules to visit with me.
Now for the relaxation. Memorial Day Weekend is a very special time of the year for me. The last 4 years I have spent the long weekend at America’s Keswick. They always do an incredible job at honoring those who have served in the armed forces and pay a special tribute to those who have lost loved ones in the fight for freedom. Keswick is a Christian retreat center dedicated to the ministry of addiction recovery through the life changing power and truth of the Gospel. This one weekend of the year, missionary pilots from JAARS bring a helicopter in and give rides. It is a blessing not only to the guests of Keswick but it is a great outreach into the community. Keswick has been a great place for me to refresh, seek the Lord and reunite with many friends.
And back to the busy. The last 4 days have involved a lot of moving. I was helping others move and moving myself. I am now staying with friends about 20 minutes east of where I was. Staying with this couple is such a blessing. Two years ago when I met this couple the wife mentioned repeatedly that if I ever needed a place to stay that I could stay in their home. You just never know! All I can say is that if you make me that kind of offer, be prepared as it may just happen! Haha! God is so good.
Good news! My website has been updated and has all the latest information. By going to FlyMissions.com you can learn more about Harvest Aviation, sign up for updates and make donations. I am very excited to have these updates completed. I even have a fundraising meter so you can you monitor (and pray) as people partner with me. Please take a few minutes to check it out!
Last but not least, I wonder if any of you know someone that might like to hear more about what I am doing and might like to donate financially to the cause. I am also looking for opportunities to speak whether it be in churches or small groups. I especially love sharing with women’s groups so if you know of any opportunities to share and could make that connection for me, it would mean so much!
Thank you all! This journey is very humbling. I am learning more and more about myself, my strengths as well as areas that need improvement. I pray, as I seek Him, that I will grow to look more like Jesus every day. Thank you all for your continued support in friendship. I am blessed.
