I've been meaning to put a blog up about future plans for sometime now but it never felt right, I guess that's a sign.

Many of you know that I decided to go back out and lead a World Race trip for 3-5 months in September. There was a lot that went into the decision and it was a difficult one to say the least. I made it a few months ago but it never felt right. To be honest, when I told people about it, I would say something like, "I don't want to do it at all but I'm hoping my heart will change before training camp."

It never got easier, my heart never changed, my heart wasn't in it. Could I have sucked it up for a few months and given it my all? Yeah. But would it be more appropriate to have someone with their heart in the right place leading? Absolutely.

I went back to the Lord and prayed about it and sought wise council. It was difficult but I felt release from my commitment and asked the World Race to release me as well. They were, as always, supportive and wanted what was best for me, I really appreciate that about them.

So I won't be leading another Race, right now. I start working construction tomorrow morning and am praying into a couple other longer term options. I'm still praying but feel like the Lord is leading me in the right direction. It's a hard transition and a big step in my life but I look forward to sharing it with you soon!!

Thank you so much for all of your support, I know all of this is easier because of everyone of you!

May We Leave A Legacy Like This

Thank you for making the move with me! I hope to blog a bit more often and keep you up to date with what is going on in my life but I can't make any promises!

While serving in Gulu, Uganda this year, I was able to visit Invisible Children and learn more about what they are doing in the war-torn country. It's powerful and effective to say the least and they have changed thousands of lives.
About a week ago in Kampala, Uganda, a terrorist detonated a bomb in the middle of a field packed with people watching the World Cup. The blast killed at least 74 people including Invisible Children volunteer, Nate Henn.

Here is a short video to commemorate Nate's life and the work he did with Invisible Children:
