*ecclesiastes 4:9-10*

Friday and Saturday of this past week were A+ days!  Friday, I had the unique opportunity to visit a public middle school in our area and share with over 100 students about my job as a missionary, and how they too can use the talents God has given them and be a missionary too.  That's the short version - but no exaggeration -  I would put that on the top 5 list of best things I've ever done.  :)  

Saturday started out early but with great reason.  I joined a group of about 12 to 15 other women to start a short four week study on Naomi in the book of Ruth.  So much lately I've really been craving to be taught and fed from the Word, especially by older, wiser believers, and God has totally been providing that.  It was such a cool time being lead through just the first chapter of the book along with all the history that goes with it.  I love knowing the context and background that goes along with what I'm reading in the Word, but I'm not always great at pulling that out.  So thankful for those God has put in my life to help grow me and push me forward!  And, not only did my day begin by digging in to the Bible, it also ended that same way with the beautiful group of godly women pictured above!  I'd say its hard to beat a Saturday where I start and end seeking what Jesus wants to teach me with a handful of other women desiring to run towards Christ as well.
