I HAVE FOUND A CHURCH!!!!!!!

Church was great last night!!! The moment I steped foot into the church people greeted me. It is a small church, so everyone knew that I'm new. And as I entered the auditorium a very nice guy immediately came up to me and introduced himself and sat next to me during the service. It's very simmilar to Harvest, my church in PE, just WAY smaller, but that's nice. I met the rest of the youth as well, and will be joining their cell-group when I get back from PE in 2 weeks time. SO EXCITED!!!! Just want to mention that I didn't wear my mask. (only have to wear it to the hospital and when I feel threatened by sick people/ too many people from now on) I only told the one guy about my transplant. Will inform the rest when I join the cell-group, but it was quite a nice feeling not being different. No mask, no couching, just a normal girl in a new church...

Although speaking of coughing... had a horrible coughing dream last night. Dreamt that I had started coughing up bloody green junk. Was horrible, I woke up with my heart racing and only relaxed once I realised my chest is clear!

Antoinette is going to the hospital at 12 today, so please pray for her and that they figure out what's wrong once and for all! Have a good week!!

I am so excited to hear that you have found a church where you feel at home. It is kind of funny. We used to go to a church that had about 50 people in the congregation. We did not feel "fed" there, but did not want to leave because we loved (still do) the people so much there. We went on a whim to our new church just to visit and see what it was all about. The church has about 1000 people at their weekly gathering. It is truly amazing, but we felt totally at home in the midst of all these people. After that Sunday, we never returned to our old church. After being gone for about 1 1/2 years, we went back to visit on Easter Sunday. Not much has changed, same families and faces. God has really given us affirmation in so many different ways that we are exactly where we are supposed to be.
Going to church before felt like it was an obligation. Since going to our new church, it feels more like a privilege, a necessessity, a burning need to be there. I look forward to every opportunity we get to meet there and count the days until the next service.

My prayer for you is that you will continue to experience the Lord in your new church!

I love to read your updates. You bring so much joy to my day...seeing you truly live life. I pray for you daily!
