So the first part of our trip begins with a week of classes at Wheaton college campus - 7 hours of class a day. Papers and tests. Hooah! So since I'm driving from mn I decided to drive up today - Saturday - and stay the night at aunt a d uncles in wi Then 1.5 hrs to campus tomorrow. So today as I was packing I realized the passport I swore was in my backpack was no where to be found. After turning the house and my car upside down and calling the us expedite passport center to get a new one Hopefilly before I left , I got in the car. Prayin god would help it show up. Mind you this whole time my parents are hiking in Colorado not answering their phones. So in the car dad finally calls and mentions that I had put holy lands things in a duffle bag that ended up being Lucy's as I was packing up and maybe I accidents left it. Highly doubtful I left Lucy a message asking her to check. She had already unpacked and was out of town. Few minutes later she calls. Her dad FOUND IT in the bag!!! Thank the lord. It's being shipped to my trip director. So here we go. God is faithful. Pray for safe speedy mail delivery. A little nervous to start classes this week but ready or not here we go!
This blog I created so that I can post text and pictures to keep y'all updated on my travels this summer :). I am heading to the holy lands with about 50-60 other Wheaton students to literally walk through the bible! We will be traveling to Israel Jerusalem turkey Greece Italy and Rome! God is good. Let's see what he's got in store..:)
