Fancy Nancy

This is Nancy and I. She is one of my all time favorite people...

Nancy and I have known each other since Kindergarten, but only became friends in high school after we got over some unfortunate incidents of teased hair, tight jeans, and dating the same guy in junior high. (The first two were all her.) When she finally gave up on keeping me and my boyfriend apart
(I'm not bitter--just stating facts), she became our great friend. She even stood beside us years later when we tied the knot. She has been a dear friend to me and loves me even though she knows all of my unlovable parts.

[By the way, YES, she's cute. YES, she's single. And YES, she would be interested in being set up with your cute brother, friend, coworker, etc.]

Anyway, as I was saying....

This is Nancy saying "I'm outta here!"

You see, Nan has a heart that loves the Lord and desires to serve Him. She is leaving Saturday morning for Nepal for a medical mission trip. She is going to an extremely remote village in Nepal that will involve several modes of transportation in the process of traveling. (My favorite is the 5-8 hour HIKE!)

I am posting this information so that you can join me in prayer for her and her team as they travel, provide medical attention and spread His word and His love to several parts of Nepal.

Please be in prayer for Nancy as she travels alone for the first few legs of her trip. She has asked for specific prayer regarding getting through customs with LOTS of meds. Also, pray for her health and safety throughout the duration of the two week trip.

I will be updating as I hear from her, but you can keep up with her team through their blog by clicking here.

Nancy, I am so proud of you and am praying for a wonderful experience for you. PLEASE don't fall in love with a native and stay in Nepal forever.:) I love you!

Go Nancy, go Nancy, go Nancy!
You are 'the bomb' and that perfect guy WILL come along and sweep you off of your feet, here or in Nepal, only the Lord knows.
Praying for you and your team.
May you be blessed for serving Him,

Prayed for her just now!
