Wow! One year ago today I got on a plane (what's that like) and left for Spain. I was very excited and had been anticipating this trip for sometime. I remember thinking and dreaming on the plane ride over what my trip would be like. Would God speak a powerful loud way or would he whisper in my heart. Would this be the place or is the place that gets me to THE place? Will I click with the team member there?
Yet even in the plane over, as I put my head phones in to listen to worship music. I felt God suddenly remind me of my first ever overseas missions experience in Nicaragua with Global Passion Ministries. The founder of Global Passion Steve Edwards and now good friend was the trip leader with my youth group. As clear as day I recalled him turning to me and complimenting me saying "you look very Spanish today!" I was brought back to the dark loud airplane I was in heading to Spain and sensed God say "see I have been planting seed for a looooong time". I smiled and teared up and this realization that in fact I was always a missionary, I just didn't always know it.
So Happy Spain-aversary to ME! Thank you for joining me on this jounrey and coming on mission with me, Marissa.
