NEWS..North, East, West, South...

So my compass is still spinning and has yet to land on a true North. After again talking to leadership as it is Monday, we are still thinking Bologna. HOWEVER, I only have till Friday, September 25 to raise the remainder of my support. Kelly my teammate will be landing in Bologna then. Annet will arrive tomorrow. My teammates and Jesse and Tricia will be getting an apartment for next year and we will need to know if will be a 2 bedroom or a 3 bedroom. So, my charge in the mean time is to raise the other 26% that I need with only 4 days left. If you know anyone who would be interested in giving please pass on their information to me and I will contact them, or even pique their curiosity by sharing my blog. :) Also, just as important is that you help me in prayer. Just keep praying, just keep praying....

Plan B in the mean time would mean that I would not go to Bologna, but maybe elsewhere. Leadership and I will also be praying this week on what that will look like. So still no answers here. In the world of me, this means not only do I not know when the compass will point North, but I don't know what East, West , and South are. I feel totally lost. Maybe I will feel less overwhelmed tomorrow, after more prayer and quite time, I will feel better. Although, no matter the direction that God sends me I am willing to follow.

In Him,



  1. Thanks for sharing, Crystal.
    I don't know much, but I do know that if you end up somewhere else, that's the place God's been preparing for you this whole time — even if the sharp turn in the road caught you by surprise, He's known it's there.

  2. Praying for you!!! The amount of the money you need to raise seems big to us but small to God. I really want you in Bologna with me & everyone else!! However I know that God knows best, and will pray that He'll reveal His will to you no matter what that may be come Friday!
