Or at least 8.
This summer I am going on a missions trip with 26 other people. We will be ministering in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Italy, and Switzerland. Needless to say, I’m a wee tad bit excited. The farthest I’ve been from the USA is a few hours into Mexico. And considering that I live in the Southwest, that isn’t very far. Problem, though: I didn’t have a passport. No problem, I thought, I’ll just apply for one, and it will be back to me in no time. WRONG! I applied in January, and because of various delays and difficulties I didn’t get my passport until just tonight. Needless to say, it’s been a bit stressful. I am so glad it came in. I’ve been praying a lot about it. It’s really easy to get discouraged when it seems like your prayers aren’t being answered. But when God finally does answer it’s always in an amazing way.
