I can’t believe it’s already here. You’d think time goes by either excruciatingly slow or extremely fast, but time has a funny way of tricking us. In exactly 19 days by right now, I will be in El Salvador spreading Christ’s love to those who are in need of it. I remember last year, when I finally had the chance of going to El Salvador and then learned that none of my truly close friends would be accompanying me. I couldn’t just choose to not go because of my own security. I had to remind myself that I was going solely to glorify God. In that instance, all my worries and insecurities flew away. I realized just how selfish my ambitions were and God basically knocked some sense into my head. I remember going to the first meeting, glancing around the white walls and examining the unfamiliar faces around me. I was happy. I was happy that God led me to step out of my comfort zone and that this would maybe lead to building new friendships. Each year, I would fall short with my money, only to be paid full for at the end of the mark or the last day basically. This year, somehow, the money came in steadily, despite not receiving that many letters. I guess it was God’s way of saying- “Don’t worry. Trust in me. I know what I’m doing. You’ll thank me later.” It was such a blessing both financially and spiritually. Spiritually, because it only reassured me of God being in control. Anyways, I can’t believe I leave this month. It is seriously crazy. Last year, time passed by so quickly, but I thought that would be the speed limit. Oh boy, was I dead wrong. So every year goes by even faster that the last. Maybe thats why our childhood years go by slowly, so we can enjoy them well since we don’t have many. Since our meeting yesterday, all that’s been on my mind every second of today has been El Sal. I literally can’t get it off my mind. I wish I could though, for at least a few hours so I could get my work done haha! It’s so mind-boggling. Someday I’ll see this blog post again( whenever and wherever I am) and it’ll remind me of God’s full-filling joy and goodness.
