Crazy how the time just keeps flying by! Wow, where has the summer gone...we are now getting into Fall soon. I wanted to update you all and let you know I will be heading across the pond September 24th to be playing for Orduspor in Istanbul, Turkey. If you would have told me I would be returning to Turkey to play, I probably would have said "no way". I didn't have the greatest of experiences my last year in Turkey, but hoping for a better experience this time around. It is nice, because I know some former teammates and one good friend in particular who will be playing in Istanbul as well. My team is also in Eurocup meaning we will be traveling to other parts of Europe to play teams, so my schedule will be much busier than last year in Israel. Turkey also has 14 teams in it's league as opposed to only 9 in the Israeli League, so that means more regular season games as well.
I look forward to getting back to blogging regularly once overseas. My prayer is that the Lord would use me to further His Kingdom and be a light while I am playing basketball in Turkey. I will try to update this one or two more times before heading to Istanbul. This weekend I am in TN with my fiancé and his family spending time with them. Caleb's mom is graciously throwing us a wedding shower before I head overseas on Sunday. Next weekend, Caleb is coming up to Ohio and we are going to be getting our engagement pictures done which will be fun.
We have settled on a wedding date which is going to be May 23rd. Caleb and I are excited to see what the Lord has in store for us in the future!! Your prayers would be greatly appreciated as we spend yet another season apart. God is so good though :)
