Just a quick post to let you know that my last day in Rijeka went smoothly! After driving Jamey and Meredith to the airport in Zagreb, I spent the day cleaning the house, packing, and enjoying these last hours with my teammates. We ended the day with italian pizza at a very cool restaurant downtown. It was a great way to end these two months. I am SO thankful for these three individuals, and I will miss them greatly!

Next steps are - drive Nathan, Lauren, and Bronwen to the airport in Trieste, Italy, tomorrow (Thursday) morning; train ride to Ljubljana, Slovenia, to be with my extended family (Josh & Kristi & the kids) for three days; meet up with my parents and Caleb and Claire and spend ten days on vacation with them in southern Croatia! I am really looking forward to time with my family after all this to process the summer, as well as think about next steps.

The story does not end here. I believe this summer is just the beginning of what God has in store for me. He has answered so many prayers while in Croatia, and has given me a greater understanding of ministry and a deeper love for Him and His bride. I am very excited to see where the Lord takes me next, and am just as as excited for you to continue travelling with me.

Will you continue to pray for me during these next few weeks? Pray that the lessons God has taught me would become very apparent and alive in my life. Pray that I would return to Moody ready to learn, be molded, and to serve. And pray that the Lord would make next steps of where He wants to take me in life more and more clear.

THANK YOU for how you have stood by me this summer. I am incredibly grateful to the Lord for your ministry to me over these past months!
