Cote d'Ivoire - April Update


Right now I find myself hibernating in the library, jamming out to "One Direction" with my friend Elena.  We're attempting to escape the winter that has made my furry boots relevant once again.

It makes me wonder what kind of hibernating I'll be doing a year from now...heat waves, freak monsoons...do they get monsoons in Africa?? Locust plagues??

The internet suggests that the most likely event will be an epidemic of the biological nature, maybe Malaria (but its ok mom, I'll bring my meds). Probably not winter storms, though. It'll be an entirely different climate than I'm used to - the little adventurer inside assures me this will be no problem, but I do wonder what sort of adjustments will have to be made: emotionally, physically, spiritually.  The verse on my lips today has been 2 Corinthians 12:9.
Craft & Wine Night has been a huge success and this month we're making our own fabric designs - if you'd like to join us in crafting, details here.

I've felt a renewed excitement for serving in the coming year and learning about what God has in store, long-term. You can learn more about Cote d'Ivoire here.

God has provided approx 80% of the support I'll need for Cote d'Ivoire. If you feel led to help in the last leg of the race, follow me here.
A few weeks ago, a very talented friend of mine put together a video explaining more of what my team and I will be up to in Cote d'Ivoire this year. Have a look!
Four months to go until we leave! Thank you all for praying for me during this waiting and support raising time; thank you for giving your time and money to make this year of service possible.

If you have any questions about what I'll be up to in Cote d'Ivoire this year and next, don't hesitate to ask!

Love,

Shasta
