I am in the middle of reading two great books and I would recommend both to anyone!

0128c0a398a05416c372d110_l The story of Neil & Carol Anderson investing their lives in translating the Bible for the Folopa people of Papua New Guinea.

 (can be bought on www.amazon.com)

1576582825At age twenty Rowland Bingham committed himself to serving not only Africa, known as the white man’s grave, but in Africa’s Sudan interior, where few missionaries had ventured and those who did soon died of disease or retreated in defeat.

Experienced missionaries told Rowland that his dream was impossible. But when he found himself the sole surviving member of the fledgling Sudan Interior Mission, he didn’t give up – and neither did God. In an amazing story of vision and faith, God used this willing servant to open a way for the gospel’s light to shine on millions of people once thought beyond reach.

Recess is over!

Well, as of yesterday, I am now officially enrolled in the Liberty Home Bible Institute. My recess of over a year will be over in about a week. I am so excited to get started!! I have been wanting to take some Bible courses since before I graduated in ’07 but I never really finished looking into it. I found out about Liberty’s home courses a few months ago and they sounded perfect!  It’ll be great because there’s no time limit on tests and stuff. I’ll be able to do everything on my own time.  They’ll be good too because I’ll be able to take them anywhere. For example, if I go back to Thailand (which is looking to be more than likely) it won’t interrupt any of my studies. So anyway, just wanted to share my excitement with ya’ll 😉

Someday My Prince Will Come

1750-10038the-accolade-posters

Sometimes I feel a lot like Sarah in the book The Courtship of Sarah McLean. Sarah is nineteen years old and a daughter still at home. She is very thankful for her family and loves to be around them, help out, and be under her parents authority. But she is feeling some unrecognizable and unwanted discontent. At one point she realizes that her disconent is due to the fact that her heart’s longing is to a wife and a mother, but no man has courted her or has even seemed interested in doing so. That’s how I have been feeling lately. I love still being at home, working with my father at GRN, and I am more commited now to courtship and waiting for the man the Lord may have for me more than ever before. But it is still hard  to be patient because I want to be a wife and mother now. That is my ultimate dream. I believe that it’s the Lord’s calling on my life.  

 So what is God teaching me through all these thoughts and emotions? He’s teaching me how to be content with my calling as a daughter and to be satisfied with a KING. The King of KIngs. Yes, Someday my Prince will come…in the King’s timing.

And the Winner is…

…Drum roll please…

Romans 12:9-18

“Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectionate one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.”
