So Excited

I am so excited to finally be able to share with everyone that I will be following God's call on my life to serve as a full time missionary in Rome, Italy! I hope you can take the time to read the full story, but if not, then just know that for the past 6 months I have been in an application process with ReachGlobal to join their brand new Rome City Team, and as of last week I was offered a full time, long term position!

I am aiming to leave for Rome in a year from now, but before that can happen I will be attending lots of training, and I need to raise 100% of my financial support. I am looking forward to this process almost as much as I am looking forward to my new life in Rome. First up is a 2 week vision trip, where I will get to go to Rome to meet with my new team. Brian and Sarah Bennetch have already moved to Rome into a neighborhood near the Vatican, so I will get to go and stay with them. Craig the other member of my team I got the opportunity to know when I went to Minnesota in November for our Readiness Event. He is great you will love him.

Along with 2 weeks in Italy I will also get to travel about the country training, and support raising, so that means I may actually get to see some of you whom I have not seen in ages! I will likely be in Colorado for either my support raising training or for language training school. This language school is not to teach me Italian, but to teach me tips for learning a new language. I will attend Italian Language School in Italy.

There is so much more, to tell you but that is why I have a blog right? So keep checking back!

If you want to join me on this road to Rome, by joining my financial team and by praying with me email me and I will happily add you to my supporters list!

Thanks for joining me on the Road to Rome!
