what up homaha

Hello friends! I’m f i n a l l y back at home after 6 weeks in paradise!

My time in Kona was nothing less than amazing. I met God, and now I know who He is. I know His great love and mercy and forgiveness and grace because I would be nothing without them. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to meet so many awesome people, whose hearts are turned to the Lord-to be loved by them, receive their prayer, go on adventures with them & just grow in God with them. I honestly have no idea when I’ll see them again, but they will surely be in my heart & prayers forever. And if nothing else, we’ll have a huge party in heaven. Kokua Crew REPRESENT 😜

The adventures I had on the island were incredible, and every single day was such a blessing. SUCH a blessing. Every trip to Daylight Minds, early mornings spent in the prayer room, jumping in the pier almost every single day, the beautiful sunsets, and just the wonderful beauty of nature on that island was just breathtaking. Man, I’m gonna miss is so much. But I will go back soon, sometime in the near (or far) future. I know this to be true.

Our God is good. Our God is great. He knows us better than we know ourselves, and He chose to choose us. That’s so amazing to me. I’m weak, and I screw up so many times, but His love is so great, and so powerful.

I have been called as a servant to this wonderful, loving God.

Of course I must say “here I am Lord, send me”
