Team Leaving and USA trip Beginning

Thus the USA tour has begun…. But before we get there… We had the Virginia team in Thessaloniki for the past two weeks and a half. They did great! I’m really proud of them. They went to the gypse camp and they loved it! We went to campus a most days in the week. They did a great job of meeting people and talking to people. One day they ended up doing back flips with this girl. It was cool because we reconnected with a girl we had met before. They also connected well with a friend of mine Alex and her boyfriend. They did a great job spending time with them and just pouring into them. They all were such troupers and did a great job of meeting people and jumping into whatever was going on. One night we had an outreach at the Perea pear. Annette, Alex, and I talked to this girl for a while about God. She really had a hard time about if God is really why you can’t see Him. She also had a hard time that if God loves us then why do we go through pain. It was so interesting talking to her. At the end I challenged her to ask God to show Himself in her life. As well as I also told her, that I believe that God sent us to her that night to tell her about God. We had a party and had some going away fun! It was hard saying good bye to my friends there, even though it is only for three months. I really miss it already and I am just sitting in the DC airport hahaha. Please pray that I will find a summer job, and that I will raise all my support for next year. Thanks everyone that has made this possible! I really am so grateful! Jesus is really doing a thing!!!
I had read in 2 Corinthians 3:2-3 “You are out letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men, being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with Spirit of the living God, not on a tablet of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” This really spoke to me about the people I have poured into this year. They are the letters in my life of anything I have done this year and the year before that. It is cool I wish everyone could meet them.
Thus begins the USA trip I will be here until September. If you want to meet up e-mail me or call me. I would love to meet up with everyone! I will be in VA from June 2, 2011- June 6, 2011. Then I will be in Florida.
Thanks again for all your prayers and supports!!!! They really do affect so many people and change lives. God is doing stuff!
