January 16, 2013 by Susie Since I’m planning on leaving on Monday for Burkina Faso, this last Sunday was a special one at church. But since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few pictures so you can see what went on: During church I was "commissioned." Church leaders prayed for me and for what God has in store for me. In the afternoon I had a going away open house. I enjoyed getting to spend time with so many friends! At the open house I also had the opportunity to share a bit more about what these next few months may look like. But I have to admit that my answers during the Q & A time were usually "I don't know." After my presentation we had more prayer. Do you see that prayer is important? Without God working, me going to Burkina Faso would be fruitless. My parents and I - I wouldn't be able to do any of this without their help!
