Overwhelmed in two ways.
One, that I’m leaving in 10 days, and I have no idea how to start packing for 5 1/2 months.
And two, thinking back to everything God has done for this trip. He has blessed me over and over in so many ways. Provided for every last thing that I need, plus more, and I can’t even begin to count them all.
I told God this morning that I wasn’t sure I could handle being blessed so many times.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful for these blessings! Because I wouldn’t be here without him. Its just that in the midst of me being human, He chooses to bless us, even when we mess up. Or keep messing up.
He calls us higher to who He sees us as. He doesn’t see us as we are in our sinfulness, rather, how He has created us to be. What we are becoming in Him. Blooming and blossoming in His rich love and tender care.
And that, is so beautiful!
And that He places such special callings on each of us. Whether we feel worthy or not. He trusts us with it. He believes in us, and cheers us on!!

I have a tried and true tip for long-term packing… Pack like you’re going on a two-week trip. That’s really all you’ll need. You’re obviously going to wash your clothes, and if and when you run out of things like toiletries, you’ll be able to help your mission field further by making local purchases!
I would be happy to help you with any specific packing probs you may have… I actually enjoy helping people in this way!
Thanks for the tip Jessica! And if I need anymore help I’ll be sure to ask you 🙂
I loved reading this, it was beautifully written! When you get there, and get settled, have Jessica sent me an address and a list of things that are needed and I’ll get some things together and send. Good luck, and you’re going to be such a blessing to those you help there. I’ll pray for you.
Wow, thank you!
