The one part that I can wait to start is the support raising part – because I am working with YFC I have to raise my support so that I can be paid for the work that I do. This is something that scares me because I have no experience with this at all. I am excited to get to talk to people about the work that I am going to be doing but I am not as excited about asking them to support me financially as I do this work. I know that God will provide the money that I need to do the job because I truly 100% believe that He has called me to this place and this career, I just don’t know how I feel about having to ask people for these funds. Luckily, and thankfully, I am going to be ‘trained’ to raise support in the next little while. I am so grateful that the leadership at YFC aren’t just going to push me out into the world to fend for myself when it comes to raising funds but that they will ensure I know what I am doing and help me along the way.
The one other thing that I am looking forward to so much is the birth of my newest nephew. This could really happen at any time – although it isn’t supposed to be happening until the middle of October – because my sister’s doctor doesn’t know if the baby will wait until 38 weeks when they plan to take the baby. I am stoked to meet my nephew and be able to spoil him as much as I spoiled my niece and other two nephews. Although, I think it might be harder to spoil him as much because I won’t be as close as I was, especially when my niece and oldest nephew were babies. I am also a little busier with my own social life than I was when the others were babies so I will have to intentionally plan time to be able to spend with him.
There are so many amazing things that are going on in my life and I thank and praise God for everything that He has brought into my life and everything that He has brought me through! I have an amazing Father in Heaven who cares for every little aspect in my life and I am in such awe of that and I hope and pray that I can honour Him with everything I do in my life. J
