The Time is Coming...

In just 9 short days I will be leaving for Thailand! I fly out of Chicago on Thursday, the 20th. While I have been waiting for this day for over 3 years now, it still seems almost unreal that it is really happening! But, it is!

I am filled with excitement as I think about what God will do in these next 2 years - how He will use me to show the people of Thailand His love, how He will strengthen all of my relationships, and how He will continue to mold me & shape me & guide me on this journey. It's so awesome to think that God has planned this season of my life since before time began and that I am about to live it out!

As excited as I am, I do have some anxiety. I'm not anxious about living & serving in Thailand - I know that God has called me to do this work & that He will be with me every moment of every day. The only thing I'm anxious about is saying all of my "good-bye"s. It will be hard saying good-bye to my family & friends not knowing when I will see them again. But, even in that, I know that God will be with me. And He will be with them.

Thank you all for your continued support & prayers. I greatly appreciate you all!
Stay tuned for updates from Thailand :)

Serving Him,


  1. Alicia,
    I almost feel like you're my little sister! I am already missing you. I love to watch your face when you sing with the choir. I can see your love for Jesus shining in your eyes. I'm going to miss that the most, I think. But I'm gonna come and see you in Thailand, God willing and we'll sing together again!! Be safe (especially in that crazy Thai traffic!)and enjoy the gifts and talents you've been given. Love you!
    Sad for us, SO happy for you,
