Friends and family,
I love you all so much and am excited that the month of December has arrived. I have the blessing of going home to Montana from December 19-26 and am excited to connect with many of you! I was also in Boise for Thanksgiving and had such an encouraging time with my immediate and extended family.
As the year is approaching an end and I’m still coming off of the Thanksgiving spirit, I want to recap and reflect briefly on what I’m thankful for from this previous year.
One Year of Missions
After moving to California last September, it wasn’t until November last year that the Lord revealed to me that I had actually moved here to work on college campuses with Circuit Riders. I was expecting initially to find a corporate job. However, the Lord kept directing my steps and led me into working with Circuit Riders full-time. As I was leaving for Thanksgiving break last year, I had no money left and didn’t know what life would look like for even the next month. Since then, the Lord has provided financially and directionally for my life with such faithfulness. He has used all of you to provide for me in moments of extreme lack as well as to provide for moments of blessing and abundance. I can’t thank you and the Lord enough for your support and faithfulness! Time after time, the Lord has confirmed his call upon my life by providing for me.
Movement on Campuses
From my first tour stop in Montana back in March to now navigating our way through planning over 200 campus tour stops for this spring, I’ve really been seeing more and more of the Lord’s plan for campuses. We are finding pockets of students on every campus who are totally sold out for Jesus and want to see him move on their campus. I am so grateful to work with college students to see young people lay down their lives to pursue Jesus. We truly are believing and practically planning for another Jesus Movement and Student Volunteer Missions Movement.
At the end of the year, I am more on fire for Jesus than I was at the beginning of the year. He has been opening up my heart to really be able to love him more in every area of my life. The Word is alive to me and prayer is honestly one of the most exciting times of each day. As with anyone’s life, it’s not always easy, but following Jesus does get better and better because we draw closer to him and become more like him. Like Proverbs 4:18 says, “the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.”
In summary, I am so grateful to God for this year and for all of you in my life. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and enjoy all the time you can spend with family! I’ll be sharing some thoughts here in the next week or two on God’s promises over our lives. Until then, enjoy December and I appreciate your continued prayers!
