|Katie, Katie, and Holly!|
Holly's trip in March led to another one-week trip in April then another visit in July. Holly, like me, could not get New Orleans and Crisis Response out of her system and every time she came down she felt the Lord revealing more of Himself to her. So when she came down again in December over winter break, we had the opportunity to get coffee. It was this week that she felt the Lord calling her to commit to serving with us for the month of March. Even though Holly had never left home before, she trusted the Lord with this plan and followed through! Praise God!

The cool part of this story is that Holly had asked the Lord to reveal her next step while serving with us for the month of March. Holly wanted to be involved in ministry in some capacity but didn't know what that would look like. (Of course God knew!) While being here, the opportunity of serving on our team in Staten Island, NY arose and Holly began praying about it. Holly prayed and sought Godly counsel from friends and family and agreed to apply to serve on our Staten Island team for an extended period of time! WOOHOO! PRAISE THE LORD!!

I pray that we all can follow Holly's example of obedience, trusting the Lord, and take step #1 in faith even when we don't know what step #2 is at the time.
Thank you Lord for the opportunity to be apart of Holly's life!
(Yes Holly you are now officially apart of our Crisis Response family! Love you and miss you!)
