Wednesday night service was last night and I mentioned to some ladies that this was like a baby - I had been waiting for something for 9 months and then it happens! I asked for wisdom during prayer requests and a friend of mine asked what I was afraid of. It really made me think and surprised me when she suggested it might be all the anticipation (like having a baby) to just before something occurs - you get scared. (Apparently this happens just before you have the baby). The lesson was essentially about how God makes the impossible possible.
I was afraid that I would not be able to do the job because I do not have much experience in it. It dawned on me that one of the reasons why I wanted to join the Peace Corps was that I would be forced to rely on God completely rather than others. This job I will not be able to do on my own - I will have to rely on Jesus and I will come away from this learning how to rely on God in a whole new way...and THAT is exciting!
This time, the next post should be a more detailed outlook on what I am going to do while in the Peace Corps. I figured I should explain how I came to the decision so quickly! I posted on the FPCV group since they all supported me while I waited. I also have joined the Nepal group that has all the other volunteers going with me and some that are currently there. Since I told my boss, I will officially post it on Facebook. :) I thought it would be a better idea to tell him in person rather than him finding out on social media!
