First Foreign Missionary Trip: Paris, France

I have several Bible Characters that truly minister to my heart, but one of my favorite Bible Characters is the Apostle Paul.  I love reading the book of Acts, his first encounter with Jesus Christ and his change of focus to follow.  I love reading his many letters and following him on his missionary journies, a powerful man of God.  On last Friday, I was blessed to have my first meeting with the person who will be advising me for my first foreign missionary journey to France.  He shared very valuable information with me at our meeting in order to prepare me for a successful trip, we discussed: transportation, lodging, meals, passport information, safety and scheduling. And we still have a long way to go.  I have began preparing myself for this journey: I am budgeting, to ensure I have the finances for this trip, I am taking French lessons every Friday; I am studying the people, their culture and religion.  I will go to Paris France in the spring of 2013 to serve for one month. As I shared in my last blog, this has been a burning desire since my childhood.  I have chosen France, because it is close to other countries and it provides me an opportunity to share in many other areas. Please remain in prayer for me and with me, as I surrender my will for the will of Christ.  I will make a local trip next month to Dallas, Texas to share the Gospel of Christ.  God has opened so many doors and I am excited to see what He has next.  Please continue to follow my blog and I will share with you my stories and experiences as God uses me for His Glory.  I am thrilled to be in the service of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I am an "Original" Star Trek fan, with William Shatner, but it is in the name of Jesus that I go, to seek out new civiliations, in Jesus' name, I boldly go...
