Friends and Family,
Thank you all so much for your continued support and prayers! It means so much to me.
I cant believe that it has already been over 4 weeks since I last posted. Time flies when you are busy!
I am getting SO excited to be leaving to Mongolia in 4 weeks. Please be praying for continued support for this team as not everyone is fully funded (If you would like to donate, you can do so online at Cowboyswithamission.com or send a check in the mail written out to CWAM, for outreach). Please pray for Gods continued blessing on this trip, also that we would continue to grow in Him and in that we would become more unified as a team. God has really been preparing our hearts for Mongolia, Thank you again for coming alongside us! We could not do this without you.
These past 7 weeks we have had lectures on The father heart of God, Nature and character of God, Identity and calling, Spiritual warfare, overview of the bible and Equine health. We have also been having weekly classes in Horsemanship, Public speaking and of course the daily work duties.
The weekends are filled with homework, long walks, branding's at local ranches and riding.
WY is a beautiful state. There is ALWAYS wind, it could snow at any moment and the wildlife is amazing. God is so creative! Last weekend I was able to go see the Big horn sheep. We also saw elk, deer, antelope, buffalo, rabbits, bald eagles and moose! I miss my NH home but I enjoying every minute in this wild countryside.
God has really been healing and growing each and everyone of us. It can be kind of over whelming sometimes and of course we are filled with so much information its hard to grasp it all, but I am loving the person God is changing me into. Fear is no longer an option for me, we are each one of use called to be BOLD for Jesus. I have been asking these question recently to myself, Why am I not bolder and what is holding me back? These past two months have just really challenged and pushed me out of my comfort zone to be the person God has created. It is such a long and hard process but I am ready. Here I am God. Send ME!
'When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?'
Please continue to pray for me.
Love to you all,
'Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.' Hebrews 11:1
Starting Aril 2 (God-willing), I will be embarking on a 3 month Missions trip to WY for training, and Then 2 months in Mongolia for Missions and outreach. I am going to be using this Blog as a means for fundraising, Prayer requests and keeping my friends and family updated. Please continue to be praying:) Blessing - Ariana
