Golf, Outings, Brats and Carts

Today I attended and volunteered at my first golf outing. I can go as far as to say that this was my first time even on a course. Tee time was at 8 a.m so that meant that I arrived around 7:00 to help with set up.

My job was to stand on the 5th hole with a lady and have the participants attempt to hit marshmellows the farthest with their clubs. It was interesting and definetly worth the time.

I still don't know much about the sport or why it is so fascinating and am confused why anyone in their right mind would watch it on TV regardless of a guy named Tiger playing.

My favorite part by far was the golf cart and when a guy started yelling at his team to give me money because I'm a missionary. These poor guys reluctantly opened their wallets and started shuffling it out... not the best support raising technique but it kept me laughing for awhile longer.

Still In Indiana

Things have been a roller coaster this last week. I've gone through some times of really doubting that the Lord is going to raise my support. It's funny--I don't doubt my call just the timing of it. I'm learning to be thankful in everything and trusting the Lord for His timing. God certainly has provided new people with the desire to invest in college students with me. I'm so grateful for them.

This week was my mom and Amy's Birtdays. My stepdad got my mom a new laptop. This is a big step for the Bastine/Horein household given that our last family computer was purchased in 1996. My mom is still getting used to the new guy. We are at Panera now mooching off free internet. You have heard me complain in the past about the lack of internet connection and cell phone coverage at my house. Well the Fam and I were talking about getting high speed internet (wireless)at the house so I made some calls... the services are not even available in our area! Go figure... love the sticks of Indiana.

Emily's Newest Man

Here he is in all of his little cuteness. I know awhile ago I mentioned that on June 18, I became an aunt. Well I wasn't joking. This is Brady Horein. My stepbrother and sister in law are the parents and last week I got to hang out with this cutie two days. This kid kind of brings a little joy to my life.

My team is in Mexico City now. They got in yesterday amidst all the crazy presidential stuff. I'm still working on support. Pray that the Lord would encourage me again... I feel like I ask him this all the time- to remind me of what He has called me to and that it takes a little perseverance.
