Tampa, Tampa, TAMPA

Oh hellooooo blog...
I know, I've been pretty absent for oh, the last month and a half. It helps me seem cool and mysterious. Ok or maybe life has just been crazy..
As many of you may know, I am spending the summer in Tampa, FL on a 10 week missions training project with Campus Outreach called the Tampa Project. This is my second summer on the project and I am SO excited to be back! I arrived Friday afternoon and immediately felt at home, like I never left. Its been great so far :)
This summer I have been presented with the opportunity to serve and be a disciple leader on the project. This means that I have three girls that I will be discipling and kind of mentoring for the summer. The first two days were some leaders trainings, and finally the rest of the project arrived yesterday. I was so excited and nervous to meet the girls in my room. As soon as I found out one of them was arriving, I would literally sprint across the parking lot like a mad-man to meet them and introduce myself as their leader. The girls in my rooms' names are Belle, Mica, and Megan. I like them a lot already. They seem to like me so far...but I'm sure pretty soon they'll see how much of a lunatic I am so we'll see what happens then. Ha :)
I'm soooo excited to see what God is going to do this summer. I cannot wait to see the growth happen in my life, in my girls' lives, and how the city of Tampa is impacted by these 100 college students  committed to glorifying the Lord with their summer and ultimately, their lives. The theme for the summer is "Undivided" with our theme verse being Psalm 86:11 which says "Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name."
Please pray that this verse would be a reality in my life, in Belle, Mica, and Megan's lives, and in the lives of everyone on project. Also, please pray that God would do big things in Tampa this summer and that he would grow each and every student on project in their faith. I can't wait to see God working and can't wait to share with you!

Much Love,
