So I have to admit, while I’m ecstatic about going to Uganda in 2 days…that’s right I leave in 2 days…it hasn’t really seemed real. I’ve been nothing but excited and can barely contain myself! When I went to bed last night, I was counting down the days! “Two days, one day, whoa! There is no way I’m going to Uganda in 2 days.” Well there is, and I am. I started getting really nervous, scared, and was not ready to go. I was asking myself a bunch of questions. “What if I get sick? How am I gonna handle the heat? How will I deal with my 46 pound suitcase? Am I going to be homesick?” All these thoughts went through my head. I was talking to one of my friends about this. And he told me “remember Philippians 4:13.” That’s right, exactly what I told him a day previously. I’ve heard that verse so much and it usually doesn’t mean that much to me. But this next month of my life is a Philippians 4:13 month as I live in Uganda.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13
