going back to kangaroo hunting

I want to start off by thanking everyone who's been praying for me in the last few months. It's been really encouraging today to hear from a couple who said they have been praying for me since I went to Australia back in January of this year.
I would love your continued prayer support as I make another big step on my faith journey. A few weeks ago, after I wrote my last blog post, I felt like God was leading me to go on in Toowoomba, Australia as a mercy ministry intern in January, 2016 for a year commitment. So, I started applying and am currently in the end stages of filling out my Australian Visa application. It's a pretty long and involving process, but I'm starting to feel like I'm getting to the end of it. I've also made a bunch of prayer cards. You can see a picture of one of them below.
I'm also fundraising to go back as staff. All students and staff in YWAM pay their own way, room and board, food, etc. I have money saved and am making some from my current job as a receptionist, but need extra financial support.
So...... I'm fundraising by crocheting and knitting items. I told on of my Aunties about my plans and she is on board to knit and crochet hats, infinity scarves, fingerless mittens, and booties for me to sell. I'm making custom mug cozies, crocheted iPod cases, and minion and monster key chains. I like creating new things, making something original and fun for people to use and enjoy. If you are interested in ordering any of the items, you can email me at for options and prices.

In other news, I spend my time going to work, which is never a dull moment and I like getting to build relationships with my co-workers and customers.  I'm part of a small group, I'm in a woman's bible study at my church, I am a school-age Sunday school leader on Sundays and part of the children's worship band.
I also just started taking singing lessons. I love to sing but I've never had formal training, and am loving learning from a talented professional. Whenever I remember, I start breathing like I'm singing sticking out my stomach like I'm pregnant.
I'd love to hear from all of you reading my blog; what's going on in your life and what dreams and plans God has been speaking to you about your life. You can email me or write a comment below.
Thanks again for all your support.
God bless.
