Absent :(

Today could have been really bad. But God, of course, was able to use it for good.

I had been feeling kind of icky over the course of this weekend; really hot and somewhat nauseated, and of course all of the fatty American food I ate this weekend didn't help me feel any better. So early this morning I woke up and felt so awful I didn't even know what to do. I ended up semi-passed out on the bedroom floor. Next thing I know my teammate Laura gives up her bed for me (since mine is on the top bunk), and the 3 teammates staying in my room are surrounding me in prayer, despite the fact the I just woke them up at 5 am, sick. Later, another teammate gave me medicine (since I didn't bring any of my own), and Laura stayed home with me because I wasn't well enough to go to school.

When initially thinking about all of this, it's hard to see any good. But God really showed me how my team came together and trusted in Him first of all. Then everyone pulled together to do their best to make me feel better.

God made it easy to count my blessings today.


  1. Rachel, please feel better soon. You know how hard it is for me that I can't help you?? Please be in touch and blog us to let us know you're all better :(
    Love, MOM
