This summer I have been blessed. Kyle has been too, but let’s be honest, he’ll never write on this again.
I got to experience so many different places with so many different people.
At the beginning of summer Kyle and I traveled to Oregon to visit our good friends from college Nate and Erin Kascel. It was SO fun. There are very few things that compare to spending good, quality time with such good friends. The visit there was good for my soul. There is nothing like friends who connect on a deep level, friends that just get you. That is how Nate and Erin are with us. I love them so much and wished they lived closer. If you want to join me in prayer that they move to New Albany with us, feel free to do so! 🙂
After Oregon we were home for a couple of weeks and then I headed to CIY. CIY is a week long conference for high school students. I was blessed to be a leader on this trip. Along with good friends, I love high school students. I love watching them and being apart of their journey when they start to hold onto the truths of Jesus and start living for HIM. This week was filled with good conversations, lots of memories, many laughs and a many, many cups of coffee. It was great!
After CIY we headed to Kentucky to celebrate the 4th of July. We went to the North American also. It was my first time and it was very eventful. Ask Kyle for more details!
When I returned from CIY the next week Kyle went to 4th and 5th grade camp. I was able to go for a couple of hours and it was great. The camp was amazing, the staff was awesome, and the leaders were so, so good. Kyle has so many funny, awesome stories from camp. There were students that week who decided to get baptized and start their journey in following Christ. I love that Kyle got to be apart of that.
After camp I went to HAITI. It was wonderful. God is so good and Haiti is so beautiful. I went with 20 high school students and 4 other adults. I was blessed by Haiti, by the students and by the other leaders. I was the team leader so there were new challenges and lots of new things learned. Haiti has my heart and I am already excited to go back. (Kyle will be going in October)
Now I am transitioning into school mode BUT summer isn’t over! Our sweet, sweet friends Matt and Joy are coming in 11 days! I can’t wait to see them! It is going to be so great. You can also join me in prayer for them to move to New Albany with us! Then a few girls from Eastview are coming. Also can’t wait for that!
God has blessed us and is still blessing us. We are so grateful for HIM and who HE is. Summer has been awesome and I’m thankful it isn’t over yet.
