Mission Trips

I have such exciting news to tell you all! On March 5, 2016 I will be on my way to Honduras..AGAIN! I am so pumped to be going and blessed of course. It was an amazing experience the first time I went and I honestly didn't think I was going to go again because I felt a call to go to Haiti for the summer. Well, things happen, God knows more than I do, and an opportunity came up that was so ridiculous and outrageous to the point of people saying "Wow, you didn't even pick Honduras, Honduras picked YOU." Which I wholeheartedly agree with.

I want to give a little back story on the decision making, what was a part of that, what I'm doing now to prepare and so on. 

So first, my friend Nick called me who was the facilitator on the last Honduras trip and asked if I was interested in going. I told him the truth, that I felt a real tug to go to Haiti this summer and I think I'm going to do that. He completely understood and told me that he called two other people that were definitely going to go and apparently they could no longer commit to Honduras Spring Break 2016. I was the last person Nick was trying to get a hold of, even though we were trying to talk a month before all of this and it didn't work out, he was trying to talk to me first to ask me where I was with the trip because he knew I wasn't that interested in Honduras this year. Other blessings came about the phone call with who was going on the trip this time, the expenses being more then half already paid by an anonymous donor and more. I know, absolutely unbelievable, so I told him that I was shocked and clearly, needed to do some praying and I would get back to him.

During prayer I couldn't understand why it was so easy for me to go to Honduras, when I felt such a tug towards Haiti. During Mass I heard a voice in my head repeatedly saying to me "you can do both". So I took a leap of faith, believed that that voice was from the Holy Spirit and didn't doubt it for one second..and I still haven't doubted it. I walked out of Mass with a full smile on my face and full of joy and laughter. I called Nick, told him what was going on in my head and heart, and even though I didn't give him my full yes, and I kept repeating "I am not giving you my 100% yes yet" He and I, totally knew that I was going to Honduras.




God is crazy. God knows what stirs in my heart, and what my mission here on Earth is and He is kindly and patiently asking me to accept and slowly but surely, I am. I keep giving Him my yes's, time and time again and He has never failed. He knows my desires, my wants and my passions, and He is overflowing with graces that is multiplying my desires, wants and passions. He is a Good Good Father, and I am forever grateful for this opportunity.

I am sharing with you all of this personal prayer time and conversations, because I want you to be a part of this journey with me. I don't want to be going to Honduras alone, I need a team of supporters behind me, praying with me every step of the way, and helping me get there. Last year I had the best people with me, and I want to add to that number of amazing people God has put in my life especially for this trip to Honduras.

Thank you thank you thank you.

xx, Lillie
