Finally Checking In on The Blewg

Life is changin'. It's crazy. Wait till you guys see us when we get home. Davy and I feel so new. We have the craziest stories to tell. I'll unleash them on the blog after a week or so of being home but you will probably not believe them. I've seen the most insane stuff unfold before my eyes. And I have had a big time growth spurt in my relationship with God. There is so much more to Him than I thought. Ahhh so much to say.

And the people here? Wow. People all over the world are here to have this intense discipleship training and they are the nicest people ever. Just the other morning, Davy and I were sitting outside and this young guy comes up to us and says, "good morning, you beautiful couple of God!" How nice is that!?

It's been pretty difficult though. The exercises we do can be really emotional and I find myself releasing heartbreaking truths about myself... I never realized how little I had faith in God and how much improvement I needed to make. However, i don't regret doing this program at all.

I can't thank God enough for sending us here. We've been hanging with some amazing Christians. Shaun and Jessica are like the best couple influence ever. I'm going to miss them like crazy.

I miss home tons and I can't wait to tell you about the new truths God has given me. If you want to see some pictures of our trip so far, follow me on instagram! My user name is "laurenwoohoo". Don't be shy to add me!

Lots of stuff on my mind. We leave in a few hours for L.A. I'm really nervous.
I'm afraid my eardrums will pop.
I'm afraid I'll get lost in the airport.
I'm afraid of someone tricking me and stealing from me because I have no idea what I'm doing.
I'm afraid that my fear will make me have a breakdown and make Davy frazzled.

Basically I just need to get through the flight and I think I'll be good.
I can't wait to learn about God in a new way. I'm really hoping to take huge steps in my relationship with Him because sometimes its hard to grow and see new things in a relationship when you've been living in the same place, seeing the same things, and doing the same stuff everyday.

This is also true with Davy. This trip is an excellent opportunity to see each other in a different light. Even though we've been dating for so long, we don't spend time alone. Honestly, it's a way of coping with the physical restraint we have. We don't want to be tempted so we stick ourselves around family all the time. Which we absolutely love, may I add.
For this trip, we are going to have to stick together but we won't be in situations where we will be tempted or anything because we will be around strangers. We will only have each other to cling to until we get used to everything.

It's going to be awesome. Scary at the moment, but I know God will speak to us.
I can't wait to hear what He will tell Davy and I.

Please pray that we will be safe and my fears will be all-for-not. Also, that God uses us to be a vessel for Him :)

I'll keep you all posted on this adventure!
