When I was twelve years old, we had a missionary couple come to our church and give a presentation of the work they were doing in Africa. It was then that I felt God calling me to Africa as a missionary.
Now seven years later, still praying for the moment in which I can set foot on the red soil of the continent to which God has called me, there is a glimmer of hope :)
A year and a half ago, a good friend of mine informed me about a mission organization called Mission Nannys (find out about what it is here). I went on to the website and saw that this was something that I would really enjoy doing. So my parents and I started praying about the possibilies coming up.
Now let's jump to the present:
About a week ago, I went on to the website and found an opening (in Africa) that basically described me. I told Mom about the only downfall that this opening has. We didn't talk about the position any further, until last night.
Last night I realized that the only downfall in this opening is no longer an issue .... so, I asked mom and dad if they would pray along side me about this opening.
Once I get the "go ahead, we have a peace about this opening" from them, I will be applying for this position :)
Please pray that God will grant my parents the peace that only HE can give (oh and it wouldn't hurt to pray that I'll be able to go lol ;))
In the meantime ... I am trying to earn money, so I will be able to go .... yes, I'm preaparing for rain!
