My newest and craziest adventure yet:

Monday, November 7, 2011

After leaving Casper for my new adventure I tried to stay in contact with those that I had met in Casper. It turns out that when I left that windy city of the Wyoming hills, changes occurred! More than any one expected! I guess that my dating frenzy there hadn't gone in vain. BJ, Dominic, Nate Tuft, LeeAnn Tushling, Roseta, Mary Dillworth, and a few others decided to go on missions!!!! by this time most of them are in the MTC! I am so happy for each of them! The Branch stayed strong, and even know many of them left on missions or to school, others moved into the ward including my little sister Kansada! My good friend Summer who was once not part of the branch, became the head of the the branch (in my opinion)! She kept the dating, and activities flowing! Also one of my family friend's named Kevin moved to Casper! After hanging out with a once inactive Nate Tuft, Kevin became active once more, and has now turned in his papers!!!! It's amazing what the chain reactions that we start will do! I also gained a greater knowledge of how a person can change! I had doubts while in Casper that a few like Nate, and Summer wouldn't change, but regardless of my lack of Faith God had better standards for them, and their lives! It was great while it lasted, but I can see why I was needed in TN. but that's for the next blog isn't it?! mwa-hahaha! looks like you're just gonna have to read on!

Casper has been.....

GREAT!!!! I didn't know exactly why God wanted me to come here in the first place. But when I entered this little town of wonder back in November I was filled with wonder. Why this middle-of-no-where-po-dunk-little-hick-town? God seemed to know way more than I did at the time, (He has a way of doing that) because I was offered a job within the first 3 days of being here. I got to be a hotel receptionist at the great empire of Hampton inn. Then after I took my parents back to Russia (an adventure in it's self) I got a second job at Casper Occupational Therapy. I loved working at these two places, and feel like I helped people feel God's love!
I saved enough money to buy my dream motorcycle! It's a beutiful Red KawasakiNinja! I know what you're all thinking- she's so small how could she get on one of those death traps and live?.....- and things of that nature. But I'll have you know my dear friends and family that my bike is a tiny one! It's a 250cc which means that the engine is very small. and the bike it's self is just my size. I practiced riding Jake's bike out in the hills for the last few months. Now that I have my bike, and know how to ride it; I'll get 65 mile to the gallon! I also saved up for a good Helmet, Jacket, gloves, chaps, and such. This has been my project for awhile. After I get it all licensed I'll be on this thing all the warm days of the year!
I've been here for 6 months, almost 7, and now it feels like my time here is coming to an end. I love being here, and love my church. I feel like a Sparked quite a few things! For example dating: It was one of my new years resolutions to date every single guy in the single's branch before the end of the year (project crossRoads). and it's been SO MUCH FUN! I've gotten to
know the YSAs in the branch, and learned more than I can say in this blog.
Now as they say all good things must come to an end. The Lord is giving me hints that this is my last month here. I found a summer job that's perfect for me! it's going to be in Gatlinburg
TN. I'm leaving in May to be a White Water River Rafting Guide on the great Pigeon River!
going back to my roots as they say. My mom is from the east, and Tennessee is a memory for
her. I'll be getting in touch with this side of our family that has been a distant place since before
I can remember. I don't know what the Future holds, abut I know that God is with me on this one, and that TN is my next personal mission. I'm trying to get one of my friends to come out to the foot hills with me, but she seems hesitant as to how many hillbilly folk are in those parts. As for me..... The next adventure awaits. All I have to do is learn how to Swim! :D

Casper, Wy

To whom it may concern,
This is the 25th of Nov. 2010. I just got back from Russia, and God put big blinking arrows in my path telling me that I needed to go to Casper Wy. It's a good thing that my sister Rachel Johnson lives here with her 3 amazing kids, and husband (he's a resident here in the hospital). so I'm here. working on Thanksgiving, but that's not a problem for me.
