Sunday, May 4


Well here we are fourth week in on my DTS (discipleship training school). I’ve been here for a month, which seems so crazy to me! I feel as though I’ve been here two months maybe three! It’s been long, but fast all at the same time! (not quite sure how to explain that one). Well the past couple of weeks we have had some pretty intense topics...Hearing Gods voice and Relationships! I cant even begin to tell you what I have learned there is way to much information bouncing back and fourth in my head..I barley feel like I’ve had time to digest half of the information! One of the main things that I’ve really grasped is that God is the only one that is going to fulfill my needs and wants. It’s easy to say God is my everything and I don’t need anyone else, but it’s another thing to fully believe it and walk it out. So here I am trying to comprehend the fullness of God and it has been amazing! He’s been showing me so much about himself revealing his character to me, which teaches me about myself (since I’m made in his image). Now I’m not gonna lie and tell you everything is perfect down “under” I miss my family and friends so much and with all the information that’s being put into my head really starts to overwhelm me, but its so good for me and I realize that this is one of those good/hard/tough/exciting things. And I love it. I’m meeting people form all over the world Egypt, Madagascar, Brazil, America ;), Germany, Switzerland, Canada and many more. Its fun to talk to people who barley know English and teaching them silly words like awkward, silly, goofy, weird…etc =]! I’ve had lots of fun as well as lots of teaching, the people here are so much fun and there is always something to do! Random little thing…Elton John is going to be playing across my street at Members Equity Stadium on the 10th of May. I’m not gonna lie it’s going to be amazing! Another thing that God has really been placing on my heart is a heart for Indonesia. We are leaving for Indonesia in about 2 months and I’m really excited to just share all this love I have. I’m still trusting God to provide the funds for my trip, but so far God has just been continually reminding me to not worry about it and that he’s going to take care of it. So you prayers once again would be amazing! I miss you all so very much and can’t thank you enough for your support!
Love always,
Jenna Dear!

I've been checking your blog from time to time to see if you added anything new. Glad to see this post. You sound like Tyler when he was interning at Streams in N.H. He loved it, but wanted to come home, all at the same time. But, as you know, it has been life changing for him, just as this will be life changing for you. Be blessed, and enjoy all those God moments you're having. You are an awesome young lady.

Good to read your update darling...sounds like your having a lot of God encounters down "under".

Elton John, geesh Jenna did you ever score with your location.

Wow Indonesia, so much is happening over there according to the news, I'll start praying now for God's direction and protection over the group. How very exciting to hear your words of conviction and gratefulness. Keep hearing His voice and walk towards it.

Love you bunches...auntie chris

Sounds like you are learning so much and having fun doing it. The time has gone on fast. I can't believe it's been a month.
