I just found out that the dates for the World Cup are June 11-July 11, 2010. Since being home, all I can think about is going back to South Africa. I would love to lead a 2-3 week trip with my family and friends from church so they can see God and experience Him there and so that I can build on my leadership ability. There is also a summer internship in Italy with Mission I6:8 that I’ve been dreaming of for over a year, and an opportunity to go with Teach Overseas to Morocco for the summer teaching English, the type of ministry that I feel God is calling me to.
All sound good and beneficial. My heart wants to go everywhere. It’s a shame I can’t do any of them this year. This summer I am waiting, not going anywhere for more than a week, so that I can learn to let my faith be dependent on God and not on going. I know it’s what I need to do for now, but that doesn’t make it any easier.
It’s over a year away, but my heart is already torn. I really just want to skip school and leave in September…
