I learned a lot on the trip to Chicago and I am so grateful for all the support and prayers. I grew a lot closer to God on this trip and I feel like everything we did down there was stretching for me to get out of my comfy cozy world.
One of the things I learned on trip is to have faith in God. Always be willing to do the things God is telling you to do. In Chicago we went to this ministry called Sling Shots. When we were there I met this adorable little six year old girl named Sandra. We had a blast playing all the games, playing band with the guitars and braiding hair. While we were playing a game she came up to me and excitingly whispered “See, There is no bad words here!”
Without God I definitely wouldn’t have said anything after that, but we had some amazing conversations about her life and my life. That made me think about all the stories we all have. We all have some good ones, some bad ones but, God gave them to us to learn and grow closer to him.
