Completly on Overload

I don't even know where to start or even how to start to tell you how the last 3 days have been. Feelings are stiring and I am overflowing. Today is our last day at the High school and the last day I will see some precious, precious people.
Last night was crazy madness with rooms wanting pictures upon pictures of the americans with them lol. After attemping to pack and taking tons of pictures I went up to my old room to say goodbye. As I was sitting there talking to them I told one of the girls that next time she came to America (her mom lives in the states) that she needed to let me know and I would come visit. Her eyes swelled up with tears and she couldn't stop crying. "I don't want you to go away." she said. At that I started the flood works as well and then shortly after the majority of the room was crying. I sat there thinking "Lord, I want to see these girls again, if not in this life in the next." I know there was an impact from our stay here and the tears reafirmed that. I am ready to start my journey back to the states and then all the sudden I visit some girls and I could stay here for another month to share the Love of Christ with them. We are going to a hotel to start debriefing the trip tonight and I will probably never see these 15 and 16 year olds again in this life. So I ask you to pray with me that we will see them in the next. Pray that what God have done here will soften hearts enough for Him to be Glorified in their lives.

See you all very soon.



  1. Amber,
    I can only imagine the emotions of those young girls and the strength they have to be away from their families and I pray that some day they come to know our awesome God and realize that He can give them all the strength they will ever need. I thank Him that He has allowed you all to be apart of their lives and let those young people see His love through you. Be safe, I love you and I will see you in a week!!
