I'm off to Ecuador for the week. What a crazy, exciting adventure! I have had a lot of anxiety in the time leading up to this trip. I am unfamiliar with most of the people on my team, I am not sure what will be asked of me on this trip, and I am going to the jungle where amoebas and yellow fever are prevalent. This trip is a mission trip with my church. I felt called to go on the trip despite my reservations. There are a lot of unknowns, but that's ok. I have been called to take a leap of faith and trust that God will catch me. I may be going to the jungles of Ecuador, but I am traveling on God's map above all. I am stepping out of my comfort zone that I might truly live the life God has called me to.
Right before I left, I felt this peace overwhelm me. Ecuador is where I am supposed to be and there is such joy in doing what I am called to do. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. Pray that God will work through the team to bring Himself glory. Pray that our team will stay healthy and safe throughout our time there. Check back next week to see how my trip went!
