My name is Lauren, and I will be flying to Vietnam one week from today! I am going with Kaeleigh, Jane, and Elissa, and am really looking forward to getting to know them even more over the next month.
Honestly, I don’t feel ready to go, but I know that God is preparing me even though I don’t see how at this moment. I am excited to see how God has been preparing me and how He is going to use my life experiences during this trip.
A little about me: My hometown is Tacoma, WA, and I have lived here my whole life. When I am not going to school at SPU, I live at home with my younger brother Bryce, and my mom and my dad. I also have a sister who lives with her husband in Louisiana. I just completed my sophomore year of college, and am studying Integrated Studies, with a focus in math, which will prepare me to teach K-8. I hope to teach middle school math, but God of course may have something completely different for me. After I graduate from SPU in 2014, I want to use my teaching skills to serve overseas as a longterm missionary. Of course, God can change this plan of mine too!
Thank you much for all of your support, and prayers especially are appreciated!
