Basically this trip has been absolutely incredible, I never imagined learning as much as I have about God and myself. I pretty much thought it would be a sweet way to travel with a purpose, it has been so much more, it’s been truly life changing, I’ve been made new, not in the way of being a completely different person, or trying to be some one i’m not (I’m still pretty stinkin’ weird, and loud… annoying for some, hehe) but I’ve thrown out what isn’t of God and kept what is, so in a way I’ve been recycled. I know I’m still a tiny little tree compared to what God wants me to be, I still have a long long long way to go, but I can say that the time here has laid an incredible foundation to really start my walk as I enter a new phase of my life. As for what I’ve learned about God, let’s just say looking back at it, I felt like I didn’t know much at all, much less about his word. Since being here I’ve learned so much about his character, the authority we have in him, the way he loves, and so much more. The craziest thing about all of it is, even with all that I’ve learned, all that I’ve grown in, and all I’ve struggled with here, God still has so much more, nothing about him ends, and no matter how much I feel i’ve matured in him (not necessarily socially, I’m always going to be an immature dude, ha) I’m always going to be learning more and more, that’s why I’m excited, and I’m even more excited to keep living life for Jesus, because I can honestly say that this experience isn’t going to be something I forget in a year, this experience was from God, and I know he called me to it!
