Where's my "Go-ahead"?

So what have I been doing while in the States? A whole lot, and a whole lot of nothing. Well, that's how it feels anyway. In an effort to be honest but not complain, I will say that this entire process is indeed a long one. The Lord CLEARLY wants me to understand the idea of HIS timing. I came here with so many plans, all of which have been either canceled or re-scheduled. But, He's in control so I must give up my right to it all and fall back in His arms.

One thing I did was enjoy an amazing weekend with my ENTIRE family for Memorial Day. We had a total of TEN people at my house for the weekend and it was wonderful! Take a look at some family pictures below.

And what is next? More waiting. I'm working diligently on my Visa for Colombia. Boy is that an involved process! And I'm finishing up the last $150 per month support-need. I'm speaking at a church in Louisiana in June. AND I'm going to a family reunion in Canada. All while trying to finish up support-raising. I'm also needing to sort through my things again and decide what is and isn't necessary for Colombia.
Please pray that the Lord would bestow His peace upon me. That I wouldn't become anxious or restless as I wait for His final "go ahead" for Colombia.

I hope you have a wonderful summer and that you guys will keep in touch with me via email. I love to get news from you all! Blessings
