Urbana day 1

Urbana day 1 has come and gone and it ended in snow. What a great way to end the day! (Elizabeth and Natalie made a snowman that got stationed to flag down the bus)

I’ve been challenged by the sessions to think about how I am living a life of gratitude; am I living simply (within my means but even more so than that) so I can give justly (to things that make an eternal, lasting impact); and to be sold out heart an soul to my Savior (David Platt). The passion that David Platt has was palpable as he shared his heart of living a life that follows Jesus with everything we have and giving up everything.

Worship was awesome – love how we song in different languages as it gives me a little alice of heaven. (Plus seeing my sister’s former InterVarsity leader playing bass)

And of course the many conversations had at the Wycliffe booth. From Wycliffe MK’s to linguist majors (wondering how to use it and being told by OTHER organizations to come heck us out!) to people curious about what we do. What a privilege to help individuals realize that they can use their passion, interests, and skills to help bring access to God’s word!

About Traveling Mosaic

I'm on a journey in this world, hence the "Traveling" part of the name. My life is also made up of pieces that, when the Master completes it, will be a beautiful Masterpiece, hence "Mosaic."
