After practice we had a cake to celebrate Nina's (the new girl on our team) birthday. In the evening Nina had some people over for dinner, so that was fun. I made some peanut butter cookies, Nunu brought a salad and soup, and then Nina bought some chicken. Tanja and Cheryl (girls from the other team here in Samsun) came over as well. It was a great time of fun, food, and fellowship.
Tomorrow we have an afternoon practice, and then Saturday it is game day! I hope everyone has had a great week.
I have some exciting news. I have a good friend that will be coming to visit me for a few weeks. She actually comes in on Saturday night after the game. I am super pumped to see her! I haven't seen her since I left to go overseas back in September, so it will be awesome to see her and get to hang out with her a little bit. I look forward to seeing you Juliana!
It is crazy to think that as of this weekend I will have been here a week in Turkey. It will be one week down and 11 more to go until headed back to the States. My goal is to finish these last weeks here in Turkey strong. I know it is going to go by fast.
January 10th - "Jesus Calling"
EVERY TIME YOU AFFIRM YOUR TRUST IN ME, you put a coin into My treasury. Thus you build up equity in preparation for days of trouble. I keep safely in My heart all trust invested in Me, with interest compounded continuously. The more you trust Me, the more I empower you to do so.
Practice trusting Me during quiet days, when nothing much seems to be happening. Then when storms come, your trust balance will be sufficient to see you through. Store up for yourself treasure in heaven, through placing your trust in Me. This practice will keep you in My Peace.
“But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?What can mere mortals do to me?” Psalm 56:3-4
