Remember THIS post?

Well, I said I was never going to Guatemala. I’ve always felt called to the mission field, but I was pretty sure (and set on) going to Uganda Africa. I don’t think a day went by without me thinking of it!

Until an opportunity came up for me to go to Guatemala, and the lady I was going with said I’d probably leave part of my heart down there. To be honest, I didn’t really believe her. Just because I was so set on Africa I didn’t see the huge blessing God had dropped in my lap!

Even after I got back, (and yes I DID leave a lot of my heart down there! surprise lol) I still had my sights on Africa. I even told my mum that I wasn’t going back to Guatemala. Well…never say never lol!

She told me that sometimes God brings us through round-abouts to get to our ‘destination’. And now, whether I go to Africa or not isn’t on my ‘to-do’ list. What He wants to teach me in the process is what matters.

I’ll be finishing up school this May, and a calling to go back to Guatemala has been on my mind…a lot. Nothing is set in stone, but I’m working toward it, knocking on those doors and pursuing it.

And I wanted my photography to be a part of it. So I created an Etsy shop (another thing I said I was done with)

See a pattern here? I keep making up my mind, and God comes along and pops all my bubbles 😉 But I’m learning to make plans, then hold them ever so loosely, and let Him bring the story about.

Back to the etsy shop.  Taking my photography and turning it into something useful and beautiful! I’ve literally just started it, so there’s only 2 items up 🙂

For right now I’m only doing note cards, but I hope in the future I might add some calendars.

But all profit is going toward my next trip. It might be this next January, or it might not be. But when I does come around, I want to be ready! 🙂

    I totally understand the need to feel ready for when the Lord calls us to the mission field! That’s exciting! I went on a missions trip back in ’14 for two months in Central America — a experience I’ve never forgotten. And I wish to go back. 😀
