The time to leave Brazil came sooner then expected, but the simple lessons of a listening trust continue to guide me forward into the unknown horizons of the future.

Yes I am back in the states - I was able to return in time to surprise my family and sister for her graduation - a priceless treat!

God answered a very specific prayer to show me that I am supposed to be working at Camp Cherokee again this summer and He has been opening alot of doors to make it happen, which led to me returning about a month earlier then planned.

Here is a thought that I read this morning that sums up the journey of the past few months and the direction ahead.

"Everyone needs to have a personal experience in obtaining a knowledge of the will of God. We must individually hear Him speaking to the heart. When every other voice is hushed, and in quietness we wait before Him, the silence of the soul makes more distinct the voice of God. He bids us, "Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10 Here alone can true rest be found.

And this is the effectual preparation for all who labor for God. Amid the hurrying throng, and in the strain of lifes intense activities, the soul that is thus refreshed will be surrounded with an atmosphere of light and peace. The life will breathe out fragrance, and will reveal a power that will reach men's hearts." Desire of Ages p. 363

To hear His voice - to always be listening - to be willing to follow - this is my prayer.

Future updates and pictures of my life will be found on

Please continue to pray for the Brazil Medical Launch program (Known in Brazil as the Luzeiros). God is providing in miraculous ways to show that He wants these boats on the rivers providing full time care for the people as soon as possible.

My Burden Bearer

"Whatever your anxieties and trials, spread out your case before the Lord. Your spirit will be braced for endurance. The way will be open for you to disentangle yourself from embarrassment and difficulty. The weaker and more helpless you know yourself to be, the stronger you will become in His strength. The heavier your burdens, the more blessed the rest in casting them upon your Burden Bearer."

Ministry of Healing p. 21
