I reached my goal!

This world is full of hatred…but it’s also full of love.

You have all proven that love is powerful. Your prayers, laughter, and personal stories have all been inspiring.

Do you see what has happened? You have all proven that our hearts are full of yearning for adventure. Some may say they are too old, too broke, too… you get the picture. But if I had for one moment listened to the too’s of this world, I wouldn’t be going on this trip.

This trip was just a vision. From the realistic point of view, you would think you were just crazy… it was a day dream… if even that. God gave me the courage to take a risk. I could have not said a word to anyone about what I saw. I could have gone about my day going through the same motions in this world; which all too often gets us caught in. Instead, I took a risk. The risk of being ridiculed. The risk of being told I was naïve. Comfort is numbing. Comfort on the outside sounds good, but on the inside it is a death sentence. Instead of being comfortable, I took that risk. That is one of the best decisions I have made. I challenge all of you to step out of your comfort zone—to come alive again and step out of the numbness that we think is life. You may find to be much happier by doing so.

God grows us by going through pain and suffering, but only if we are willing to take that risk. Jesus told us that we must have childlike faith. Risk can be considered childish. If so, then I feel honored to be called childish.

Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for being a friend. Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Now go out there and do it yourself!

Love,

Stacy
