BUT That doesn't mean that I let him. In moments when the thought was small id say a quick prayer. Sometimes though I'd be in tears wondering if it's right. But as soon as I knelt down and prayed a gentle peace came over me. I know what I'm doing is right. I can't wait to get out in the field! I'm sending Satan back down where he belongs. He isn't getting this future missionary!!!

When I was first waiting for my call everyone kept telling me that as soon as I got it the Devil was gonna come at me with all the fire he's got down in hell. I listened but didn't really believe them. Well after I opened my call I was super excited!!! ... Then I spent 3 1/2 hours waiting in line for my passport. That's a lot of thinking time. Well I started getting these thoughts in my mind. Things to create worry, fears and doubts. "Is this what I'm suppose to be doing?" "Am I giving up my chance to meet Mr. Right?" "Will I be able to learn the language?" "Will something go wrong while I'm there?" "WHAT IF I DIE?" All of these thoughts have gone through my mind. Because the devil knows how to get to me.
