My 50th Post!!!!!

For the Sake of the Call

Nobody stood and applauded them
So they knew from the start
This road would not lead to fame
All they really knew for sure was Jesus had called to them
He said "Come follow me" and they came
With reckless abandon they came

Empty nets lying there at the waters edge
Told a story that few could believe and none could explain
How some crazy fishermen agreed to go where Jesus lead
With no thought for what they would gain
For Jesus had called them by name and they answered

We will abandon it all for the sake of the call
No other reason at all but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die
For the sake of the call

Drawn like the rivers are drawn to the sea
No turning back for the water cannot help but flow
Once we hear the Savior's call we'll follow wherever he leads
Because of the love He has shown
And because he has called us to go we will answer

We will abandon it all for the sake of the call
No other reason at all but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die

Not for the sake of a creed or a cause
Not for a dream or a promise
Simply because it is Jesus who calls
And if we believe we'll obey


Well, this is my 50th post!!! I thought I would share one of my favorite songs by Steven Curtis Chapman with you!!

Pictures from CEF

Here are some pictures that I took from clubs and on the way to them!
"I love cookies!!"
Me and MM

Here is what Gravis #4 (I will tell you more later) looks like when she wants Starbucks!!

Gravis# 2 praying.

"What do you mean you won't pray?"

Please pray for us as we go out to these communities! It is a spiritual warfare! Thank you!!!
Okay........Some of you are thinking "What is Gravis # 4 and #2? Well, it all started when Gravis #4 said "good gravy" all the time during training. Which led to different gravy's such as "bad gravy", "cute gravy", "nasty gravy", and so on and so forth. By the end of training, Gravis #2 and #4 came up with the Gravis Family. (And no, not all stories are about them. You just have to mention them so they get credit for it. If you know what I mean.) So, with out further ado, I introduce........
(Pictures will be taken later.)
Uncle Doug and Aunt Debbie
Gravis #1
Gravis #2
Gravis #3
Gravis #4
Gravis #5
Gravis #6
Gravis #7

You already know who is #2 & #4 and you will have to wait to know the rest when I can get a picture of them!
Bye for now!

What I've been up to

So, I went to training last week and am now working as a summer missionary for CEF. CEF stands for Child Evangelism Fellowship. I stil have training in the morning and 3 clubs in the afternoon! Btw, I can't think straight so my post may not make sense. I have been very busy, preparing lessons and making sure I haven't lost my mind. That's bascially it. I post more later bc my head is hurting from drinking Starbucks.

CYIA Training




These words cannot describe what I am writing!

I arrived @ the Chick-fi-la and loaded into a van with four other teens, whom I did not know. Just 45 min. later we arrived at the 4-H Center and were unloading. Wow! I thought, this going to be fun! We then went to orientation, in the Main Classroom, and learned what we would be doing and who we would be serving with. We learned about the rules of training, the classes we would be attending, and most importantly the reason why we were here. Dinner came shortly after that. Then it was back to the Main Classroom for workshops and Prayer Time. Then I headed to my room and fell asleep.

6:30am came fairly early for me. But, I would have to get used to that, bc that is the time I would have to wake up every morning for a whole week. Breakfast was @ 7:30 then off to Worship and to learn about the Mission to Haiti. We then welcomed another team member and settled down for a long day of Workshops, How To classes, Demonstration club #1, Practice club w/ Team Leader, Lunch and Dinner sometime in between those things, and Prayer Time once again.

The next day was pretty much the same, Evaluation Club and Demonstration club #2, Wordless Book Training and Prayer Time once again. We welcomed our last and final team member.

We basically had the same schedule the rest of the week, Evaluation Club and Demonstration club #3,4,5, but on Friday we had a special class.

It was as balloon class. A man came and spoke about his ministry with balloons. It was pretty interesting.

God taught me alot this week. There is alot more to say, but I will add on to this post day by day. So check back later to see how the rest of my week went!

Love ya!
