First things first though, my best friend got married two weeks ago and I had the honor of being one of her bridesmaids. Lauren and I met at Highland Baptist Church when I was a senior in High School and have been close ever since. She moved to Clinton to attend college while I stayed in Meridian. She spent her summers in Canada and traveling the East Coast working for Mission Teams and now she's in Tuscaloosa finishing her Master's degree. Even though she hasn't lived in Meridian in several years, we're closer than ever!
Lauren and Alan met in Tuscaloosa and are a perfect match for each other. I couldn't have picked anyone else for Lauren. Their love for God and for each other are so sincere and I am extrememly happy that they are spending the rest of their life together.
*Lindsey O. was a bridesmaid too, but she graduated from college that morning so she couldn't attend all of the festivities

For many of you, you already know that Gracie (my dog) and I really don't like each other. Ha-- it may be because she tends to rank a little higher than me! (just kidding, mom!) Anyway, I couldn't help but really think that her laying in my suitcase was sweet! Way sweet!!
Please be in prayer for me and my friends, Ben, Neil, Amanda, Matt & Justin. Pray that God will help us to be sensitive to the needs of the people in the Dominican Republic. There really isn't a set agenda for the trip, we're basically just prayer walking and forming relationships with the people down there. I'm really excited about meeting the missionaries that we'll be working with, but most of all, I'm excited to see how God is going to use this experience to help me grow as a Christian.
