It has been a fun trip and I arrived home yesterday. The trip home always seems so much longer than the trip heading out. Something about those LONG car rides that the closer home gets the slower the car seems to move. It was a fun trip. I will tell you more about the whole trip later, but first I have to tell you what happened to increase my faith in God:

This conversation took place about 6 weeks ago now:

karen: "so, you are going to Missouri?"

me: "yes, in august...uuuuggghhh. It will be so hot. One day, when I become a presidential ambassador, I am going to do something about International Conference being in August."

Karen: Pause - "Well, why don't you start praying about it now?"

Me: "well, I never thought of that - GREAT idea"

So, six weeks ago, I began to pray that Missouri would have unusually cool weather while we were there. GUESS WHAT?? IT HAPPENED!! We were even cold a couple of evenings! I walked a mile outside, didn't even break a sweat. I will be honest, it may sound silly to you, but in my opinion, if God can make Missouri cool in August, He can do anything! So, that, my friends is how my faith grew.

PS. I can't wait to go catch up on all of your blogs - thanks Jen for missing me, I am truly honored!

Michelle - welcome back! Glad the weather was tolerable (I understand - I'm a person who can't tolerate the high heat.)

You know how I feel about the heat, and I was always in two a days in college in mid to late august in illinois and kansas. The worst was when farmers were putting ammonia in their fields and it was 100 with 90 percent humidity. Not only was I hot, but I thought I was going to sufficate

I like it hot!
Yes, God is good and I'm glad he took care of you all on your trip and you got home safe and sound AND you have internet connection!
I think He's been working over time for you. :)
