Choose Hope

I 'm sure some think I'm unrealistic for not choosing to let fear live in my body, mind, and soul. I have no fear because I am a walking experiment in what faith and truth has done in my life-for my life. I've traveled into the deepest jungles in The Democratic Republic of The Congo (during Civil War and disease outbreaks), The Philippines (during religious wars), Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Paraguay, Brazil. More than once, I've crossed into the Palestinian territories, even talking with local residents cooking food outside (you think I didn't get some looks as a white, blonde-haired, blue-eyed, 5'9" American) I've ventured into the outskirts of Russia, Mongolia, Kiev, and so many other countries.... these are just the ones that come to mind. All of this because of my ministry/work with my husband. All of this travel without vax Ines (misspelled for a reason). #nocensoring. I have always been proactive with my health and I have traveled with nutritional supplements, drank lots of water, eaten as healthy as possible, avoided refined sugar, and more. . Most of all, I pray every day and I believe that God answers prayers. Not always the way I want him to. No, I don't get everything I pray for. God always gives me everything I need. I believe this with every cell in my body. I am #hopeful. "suffering produces perseverance, perseverance builds character, and character produces hope." (paraphrased from my life verse. Romans 5:-1-5

Let me know if you need help navigating these times. 
 Keep the faith.  We are getting through this!
