“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11 ~

I can’t wait to visit this land of riches called Ethiopia. Time to open my eyes to what a metropolis perched 8000 ft above sea level has to offer….so rich in history, beauty, hospitality…

I’m grateful.

Lately, I’ve been overwhelmed with being ‘content’. What more could I ask for than to be given the opportunity to live a dream. I’m so grateful for the past few months. I’ve learned so much about myself and what it REALLY means to let God take full reins. To make a long story short, God has opened doors! I’ll share all the details later over a good cup of coffee.

I will be leaving for a week of training in Ottawa and Montreal on the 21st of this month. Afterwards, depending on flight availability, I will leave for Ethiopia ASAP. I will be stationed in Addis Ababa, Capital of Ethiopia, for a 6-ish month internship. Due to the Canadian government affiliation with my internship, ON PAPER this is not a mission rather an international government post. However, I see this as a personal mission.

I don’t know what God has in store for me. I don’t know if I’ll get robbed. I don’t know if I’ll get Malaria. I don’t know if I’ll need to be Medvac-ed out like an acquaintance because of Mountain Sickness. I don’t know if I’ll be able to pick up the language. I don’t know how He plans to use me. I don’t know…

All I need to know is that HE WILL USE ME. HE WILL PROVIDE.

I’m going to miss Everyone so much! I get teary-eyed every time I think about saying ‘goodbye’ to family and friends!

I just invested in what I foresee to be one of my most expensive hobbies! Here are some samples of why it’s worth it! Since birth, I have always been a NIKON fan!
