And So it Begins....

Our God is incredible!  I think I often forget just HOW  incredible, creative, and faithful He is!  A month ago I was walking across the platform at James Madison University receiving my diploma!  It feels like yesterday when my parents were  dropping me off at JMU as a freshman!  Back then I couldn't think past the weekend and if anyone asked me what I wanted to do with my life I wasn't quite sure how to answer.  I know the Lord has given me many strong passions:  Africa, Missions, and Art.  These 3 passions have always competed in my mind whenever I contemplated my future... obviously I was putting God in a box by thinking those 3 passions could never be combined into one fantastic experience...I was wrong!
In about 7 months, I will be packing up my life in America and hoping on a plane with my passport and a one-way ticket to Kenya to join a team of photographers, journalist,and videographers! " On Field Media" is the name.... Telling the story is the game!  I am super excited about being apart of Africa Inland Mission's (AIM) On Field Media team (OFM) in Kenya!  This  past weekend I was blessed with the opportunity to attend AIM's Candidate Week up in NY!  It was an incredible experience where I was briefed on what I will be doing in Africa and how OFM works!
I felt so much peace during my week up at AIM's headquarters!  It was refreshing to stop and think back on my very first encounter with AIM and how the Lord has opened SO many doors since then that has brought me to my decision to become an AIM missionary!  I will write more soon about the details of my trip.

For now, remember this... God is incredible!
