It’s been a pretty incredible year.
There have been highs.
And there have been lows.
It’s pretty crazy to think about where this past year has taken me.
The places I’ve been.
The people I’ve met.
The children who continue to change my life.
The ways I’ve seen God move.
It’s been unreal.
A Year in Review Through Blog Entries
In April, my moment with Yamah made me realize why I’m in Liberia in the first place.
By August, I was sick and tired of being homebound, but just HAD to get to the ocean. The week at the beach freed me from my crutches, and gave me alittle sanity.
I spent half of October in Seattle experiencing the life of an ORR home office employee.
It has been an unbelievable year! Just in making this post, I've noticed that the year began and ended with YOU! Your love, prayers, encouragement, support and your willingness to get involved in all of these silly pledges--you're the best! I can't thank you enough for all of it! I also noticed that, although this year was my most difficult in Liberia yet(deaths of 2 children, my 'month of darkness'--as I call it, malaria, a broken foot, coming home unexpectedly), there was also alot of JOY!
I wish you a very happy new year! I pray blessings on you this year. I hope that 2011 bring you unending love, a deeper understanding, an abundance of blessings and great, deep joy! I am looking forward to this year with great anticipation because things just keep getting better! I can't wait to share this next year, and this next chapter of my journey, with you!
