off we go! into the wild blue yonder...


Yep. I leave for Peru in a very very few hours. My TWO bags are packed (so snugly that I'm pretty sure no more AIR could fit) and I've eaten my "last supper" and I've taken my last American shower and I've blow-dried and straightened my hair for the last time until August. Crazy.

And, to top off the night, I just got to talk to Allison Rogers who just RETURNED from a ten-day trip to Peru, and her passion and excitement for the people and the country has DEFINITELY rubbed off on me. God is so faithful! Just when I was stressing again about my hiking pack not being symmetrical, He provides encouragement. What a good God we serve.

So, I leave tomorrow. Not sure when I'll be able to update again, but as soon as I can, I'll let you know. :)

For now...

How GREAT is our God!
Sing with me!
How GREAT is our God!
And all will see
How great, how great is our God!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
How GREAT Thou art! How GREAT Thou art.
