Quick Update! On Wednesday the 14th I had emergency surgery. The doctors had to remove a cyst and burn several spots of endometrioses. Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus (endometrium) grows in other areas of the body, causing pain, irregular bleeding, and possible infertility. I am recovering slowly from the three incisions made on my abdomen. I would love to hear from you! It can get kind of lonely laying around the house all day. Thanks for your prayers and support!

Family and Friends,

Thank you so much for all of your prayers, support, letters, packages, and thoughts. I could not have served in Botswana for two years without all of you at home routing me on. I thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am currently living at home and working at some odd jobs. I have been going to Physical Therapy for my shoulder which I hurt in a car accident that I was in on the way to the airport in South Africa. Recovering has been painful and very slow so please continue to pray for me. Also the pain I was having in my abdomen was a large cyst on my ovary which I will have removed by a laparoscopy on the 24th of November. Please remember me. I am also applying for Graduate School at the Psychological Studies Institute. I have to take the GRE on Nov. 24th and will find out if I made it into the school by Christmas. I would like to get my licensure in counseling specializing in Child and Adolescent Counseling. My goal is to be back on the mission field in 5 years. I am not sure where yet? I know God is preparing a place for me right now. I love you and thank you again!
