One person I have really been looking up to throughout this process is Paul. In the beginning he persecuted Christians and killed them. Then he changed and started preaching the name of Christ and no one believed him. That is how I think it will be for us, hard and no one will really put their trust in us. If you read on people started coming to his sermons and started trusting him and believing him. Paul ended up in jail a handful of times and what was he doing every time? Praying, and God answered him. This whole process has been a journey, but I am still very excited about going. In Thailand I want to meet people my age and let them know I will always be there for them and that I want to build relationships with them. I want people to know that we are not going to Thailand to change people, we are going to love people. This may seem odd to most people, but did Jesus ever make someone be a Christian? He hung out with people and loved them where they were. Thailand may seem like a huge leap for us, but really it is a small step in Gods eyes. We cant live in a comfort zone and expect everyone to know Christ. We have to put our faith in God and trust him. God will put us in his hands and protect us throughout the whole journey.
