Here is an update from Madisen as she shares her heart:
It’s me again!
And if you don’t know who me is, it’s Madisen!
I am so excited to say that I am going back to Costa Rica!
I learned so much from going on this trip.
I have the same wonderful leaders I had last time
(Kristin Mclendon and Kenda Meeks).
They both have invested into my life and I am completely thankful for them.
Going to Costa Rica has given me so much courage and helped me bloom into the flower God wants me to be!
Last time you got one of these letters it said that God wanted me to go to China and work with the handicapped children.
Well, that has changed a little bit.
I went to Haiti last summer and saw things some people would probably want to thrown up after seeing!
But, I helped with delivering a baby, cut the umbilical cord, and examine the placenta.
I know what you are thinking, it is probably something like
“Your mother is crazy” or “ Why in the heck is her mother letting her do this”!
Trust me, I’m thinking the same thing, but God has called me to be a midwife.
I’m still getting used to saying that!
Most 15 year olds don’t say that kind of stuff!
I will be traveling with my church, Riverstone and my youth group.
We will be returning to The Abraham Project working with Jonathan and Amy Griffith and their children.
We will be teaching the kids bible stories, working in the children’s homes, doing construction project, some outreach to the community, and giving the Griffith and the parents for the children’s homes a date night.
I will be returning to Costa Rica on June 3rd to June 11th.
The approximated amount is $1,500.
I know it is a bit bigger then last year, but that is airfare for you.
I feel like I am called to missions and this is preparing me towards my work in China.
I am asking you to pray for and with me, as I get ready to leave.
