Hey guys! It's Adri here :)

As some of you may know, I have been working towards finishing up my Masters degree in Pastoral counseling at Liberty University, and finishing up my counseling internship, for graduation in May. During the past few months God has really spoken to me and opened up my eyes to the many needs of others. I have seen people's hurts and struggles in repsonse to life, whether in my students or clients I counsel, and I see the difference God can make in people's lives through a willing servant. 

As some of you may know, my love and passion has always been for teenagers and young adults, and through an amazing God driven chain of events, I have been accepted into the VIA - Volunteers for Ariel, summer program.

What's the VIA - Volunteers for Ariel program? It's about a month long program during the summer (End of June to end of July) that takes place in Ariel, Israel. During that time I will be working with children and teenagers through day and summer camps to teach them English, provide counseling when needed, and just love on them while I am there. Not only will I have the opportunity to spend with these children and students and pour into their lives, but I will have the opportunity to be placed with a local family and be poured into by them; to have a chance to see and understand their culture and their lives, and to be a blessing to them. This would be an amazing opportunity to show them not only the love that God has for them, but to show the love that Christians have for the people of Israel. Not only that, but I will have the chance to see the very places spoken of in the bible, and ultimately, I know I will see God move in such mighty ways. 

My heart has always been to be in a position in life where I can serve God's children with love, support, encouragement, and guidance. I feel this season of life, God has been setting the foundation and groundwork for what's to come, and is training me to go out and do his work. I know and trust that God will provide a way for me to go where he is leading. I ask that you would consider joining me and partnering with me in this adventure to serve and minister to the children and people of Ariel, Israel and show them Christ through our love and actions. I would appreciate any form of financial assistance, prayers, or words of encouragement you can provide as I take this super exciting, and somewhat scary, adventure with God. 

Thank you and God bless!

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”
-Isaiah 6:8

Just spoke with the Pastor heading the trip to put in the $200 deposit with the city of Ariel. So excited after speaking with him and hearing more about his experiences with the program and his time in Israel. Still amazed at the opportunities God is giving me. 

Thank you to my friends who have helped support me thus far! I'm so grateful for you guys!

A lot has been moving in the past couple of weeks!

Spoke with the travel agent and was able to book my plane tickets to Israel (Hello 12 hour flights!), and received my passport book in the mail! 

I'm booked to leave June 24th, which with how time is flying, will be here in no time! 

Next week we have meetings to review trip information before we get into Israel. It'll be a long day, but I'm so looking forward to it!

It's been a week since my Master's graduation! Still in disbelief that school is done, and I don't have anymore assignments due, but so relieved that it is true. Counting down the days left of the school year with my students, and seeing them head off in their new directions.

Looking forward to being able to put in all the skills and lessons I've learned this year to use during my time in Israel. Can't wait for my new season to begin and the new adventures God has for me!

Also, a HUGE thank you to friends and family in helping support me on my trip! So grateful for each and everyone of you, and your encouragement and belief in me.

Love you all!
