Saying Goodbye

I cannot believe the summer is over. It seems like just yesterday I was packing my bags and preparing to leave. God has worked through me and in me this summer, and words cannot express how much I will miss the Dominican Republic and the people there. I have learned so much and have truly come to know God and the power that He can have in our lives. I have learned the importance of prayer and inviting God into every situation we encounter. I have seen the Holy Spirit at work in my life and in the work we did this summer. I have met and formed relationships with some of the most incredible people on the face of this earth. I know God is at work in my life, and I pray that I will be able to hear His voice and see where it is He wants me to be and where it is He wants me to serve.

This summer was the most incredible experience of my life. Thank you all so much for the prayers, messages, thoughts, and kind words that you sent throughout the summer. You do not know how much I appreciate each and every one of you and I am so grateful for each of you. Please continue to keep the missionaries in your prayers that are still there. Thank you for keeping up with my adventures on this blog. I pray that it blessed your life in some way. Love you all so much.
