I can't believe that I wrote these things about 8 months ago. Time has gone so fast! Its good to read back over these things. I've spoken about them for past 2 months and its so easy for it to become normal and forget how I really felt. But actually these thing are still very much alive in my mind and my heart.
Tour finished with a few days at IMC, spending time with the other teams and planning for the final commissioning service which happened yesterday (30th June). It was really nice to see everyone again, and the final event went really well. It was so sad to say goodbye to everyone, and so weird that its actually over. But looking forward to seeing them all again in the near future. I've made some life-long friends whom I love dearly.
As of yesterday I am officially an ex-action teamer. Its been a difficult, challenging, draining year. I've been home less than 2 days and I'm ill. But its been an amazing, life changing, eye opening, inspiring year full of brilliant surprises, love and happiness. I've experiences things I never thought I would, fallen in loved with 50 children, saw first hand freedom, witnessed emotional and physical healing and grew so much closer to God.
You, whoever you are reading this, have followed and experienced my journey with me. You have heard the troubles and the trials, the ups and the downs, the laughs and the love. I'm sad its over, but happy to be home. Its so weird not being a part of BMS anymore. All that time raising money, training to go overseas, living in India, training for tour and touring the UK and now its done! I feel a bit lost!
So where do I go from here? Well, the summer is full of relaxing, working, a week in France, New wine, and most of all, spending time with the people I love and miss. Then come September I'll be heading off to the University of Creative Arts, Farnham, to study photography.
Before I finish my final missioning it blog, I want to thank you all so much for your support, financially, emotionally and prayerfully. Its made such a difference to my time. Couldn't have done it without you!
My overseas mission work may be over for now, but it doesn't end here. I have the rest of my life to experience so many more adventures, see so many new things and to live out the life God has planned for me.
So here begins my journey, missioning it...
My amazing journey, cue the music...
