I have arrived in Poznan, Poland! I got in yesterday around 8pm Poland time. But I hung out with at the shop with old and new friends until about 2am. Then, I finally made it to my apartment and bed. I also got my first experience of driving in Poland! It went well considering it has been years since I've driven a stick and all the signs/lights are not the same. This morning I had to force myself to get out of bed... jet lag and switching so many time zones is not a help... I wandered to the store first because food and water were much needed items! Now I need to get myself going with unpacking/moving back into my apartment. It's good to be back!

"Leavin' on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again..." Today I am taking off from SFO and flying 14 hours to Berlin, where I will be catching a bus to Poznan, Poland. I am not looking forward to the long traveling process. I really do hate airports and airplanes. Plus, 14 hrs on a plane by yourself is kind of boring... But the end result of being back in Poland is worth it all. I am so EXCITED to be going back to my 2nd home. I can not wait to work at Sweet Surrender and get back involved in the ministry we have in Poland. Please pray for me as I travel. And check back regularly for stories of the amazing adventures that await me in Poland!

Big Changes

Life has been busy!!!! I have been in the States these past four months working on raising funds to return to Poland. As of s week ago I raised over my goal to stay in Poland for a year! Wednesday the 26th I will be leaving from San Francisco and traveling about 18 hours to Poznan, Poland. Once there I will go back to working in the Sweet Surrender coffee shop. I am so EXCITED!!!!

A couple of weeks ago I hit a major milestone in my life. I was ordained as an elder in the Church of the Nazarene. It was an amazing experience, one very hard to describe. It is a joy/relief/honor to be at this point in my ministry!

So, I will be off shortly on another adventure. Please pray for me!
