God is so good! I got my first car today! :)

It's a 2000 Toyota Corolla, and it's in great shape. I truly don't deserve such a nice car.

new opportunity

Yesterday Anna told me that I'm going to be in charge of the food team for M28. I'm excited! :) And a little nervous. I tend to be more of a follower than a leader, and this will be my first time being in charge of a group. Basically all it will involve will be setting up and taking down the snacks at meetings, and recruiting people to help with that. Doesn't seem like that much, but I'm not sure how I'll be as a leader.
This reminds me of what I just read in the book When People are big and God is Small: "When a heart is being filled with the greatness of God, there is less room for the question, 'What are people going to think of me?' "
I need to keep my focus on God while I'm leading. That way I'll be less likely to worry about what people think of my leadership. And hopefully, if I'm looking to God, He will help me lead in a way that serves Him and others.
Wow, lately I've had so many opportunities to grow in dependence on God. He knows just what I need to stop relying on myself and look to Him.

brief update

It's been almost a month since I posted. Let's see...
I went on my first day-trip to the beach 2 weeks ago with some friends. We stayed on the beach for about 7 hours, then went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. It was so much fun relaxing with friends for a whole day! :)

Anna's been gone from Chick-fil-A for a week now. It's a little hard for me adjusting to her not being there, but hopefully it will get easier.

Mission28 is starting back up in a month! :) I can't wait to see how God will move in people's hearts this year! I've made it my goal this year to reach out to at least one new person. Even though I'd rather stay in my comfort zone with my friends, by God's grace He will help me branch out. It'll be neat to see who God brings into my life.

I don't have a car yet. Hopefully I'll get one before the 16th, when Wesley starts at CPCC. God will provide, I just need to be patient.
