Life is funny.
For example, God puts things in your life that you never knew were there until He fulfills His plan and that is in His timing. period. Today I was reminded of this in a way I can not even begin to describe- But I will try my best. I was able to go to both my Junior High (Cedar Heights) and my high school (South Kitsap High school). While I was there I got to see some of the people that played a key part in my schooling as well as influencing what was next in my life. Though I only went to Cedar for my 9th grade year I was much encouraged by the sweet student store lady- Ms. Nixon. She constantly was telling me about her journeys to Ghana, Africa. When I was getting ready to move on to high school she gave me a list of encouraging quotes. I didn't really know why she was telling me this stuff because I DID NOT want to go anywhere I was happy right where I was in little Port Orchard. When I got to high school our economics/history teacher Mr. Bergeson showed the film Invisible Children. My heart ached for the children knowing that this ongoing abductions were still going on. But I was still so fixed on getting through high school and then going off to college. little did I know that God's plan far surpassed anything I could have even imagined. Anyway, I got to visit Ms. Nixon, Bergie, as well as many other teachers that I had no idea were making little impressions on my heart before I even knew that I was going to be heading to Africa.
Just to fill you in on what new with Ms. Muwala Wamusumba- I am on track to fly back to Uganda at the end of August. I have been looking at plane tickets this week and am excited to get a date nailed down and begin my countdown! I would return today if I could. I am currently working three jobs: A nanny on Monday on Friday for three young kids that I adore, and office by the company of Legacy telecommunications as an office assistant, and a team member at Blu Berry frozen yogurt so I am staying as busy as I can. When I head back to Africa I am going to be taking online courses through Louisiana State University's Distance Independent learning program wow that is a mouthful. :) I will be completing pre recs for achieving a nursing degree, Lord willing, from Grand Canyon University. I am also planning on taking some classes during this summer just to get a jump start on things while I am waiting.
I just finished typing up a new support letter and I have half of the monthly support I need from people who have been so generous to me. I have been in contact with the team that is in Uganda everyday. we have been sending photos back and forth and I feel like I am right there again! I miss hugging on those sweet kids! God has been so faithful and I am confident that he will provide every step of the way.
