just another day...

this morning came early as prayer meeting started at 7am. most wednesdays we meet as a group with athletes in action and pray together. it's seriously such a blessing to starting the day and for connecting with one another. everyone is very busy with different schedules and many things on the go. meeting early was pretty much our only option. today we went around and shared a bit about what our lives look like including what the future holds, so we could pray for and encourage one another. who better to submit your will to than the creator of your own life plan? sounds like a good idea to me.

when it came my turn to share, i was excited to say that i'm coming back to prague for another year. i'm not sure exactly what it will look like - whether it's through aia or just as a christian athlete on my team - but i'm thankful for the peace the lord has given me about it and the knowledge that i am, indeed, supposed to be here.

i'm really excited about a few things. namely, learning this language a lot better so that i can communicate with my teammates. and in turn, getting to know these awesome girls better and being able to share my life with them and vice versa. i love these people and the more i pray about it - the more i realize that my heart, right now, beats for the czechs! i don't know how long god has called me here, but for now, it's one more year and i'm content with the knowledge of that.

call me crazy!

Hi Chelsa,
I agree, no better way to start everyday than talking to God. I am really happy for you, and I praise God for the way he is using your life to reach out in another country. Keep it up and more importantly keep praying every morning. It was good to see you when you were home.
