wow... it has been 5 and a half months since I last updated! I'm sorry for such a long delay in blog posts.
many things have happened in the last 5 and a half months... ^_^

   God has blessed me, stretched me, strengthened me, broke me, healed me so much in these past months.
to give a update, on December 15th this year me and Josh are getting married!!!
It is all God's amazing, overwhelming grace. after much prayer, God really put it on me and Josh's hearts to get married. When I look at the friendship and relationship between me and Josh that God has blessed me with... it's all God's work, His grace, His love, His mercy. I don't deserve it, it's all God's grace.
Lord willing if I am able to, I am going to try to update my blog more with what God is doing in both mine and Josh's lives and what God has instore for us.
  Please keep us both in your prayers, that we would desperatly cling to God in His word and fall more in love with Christ daily! God bless!

After the semester ended, everyone started to leave. the first ones to leave were Bloodworth, Hae Young and Lance. the next people to leave were Alex, Aya and then me and Josh. It was sad saying goodbye to everyone, but at the same time I was so excited to see what God had instore for us all this summer! 
God blessed me so much on my way home! the flight was fast and I got to talk to Japanese lady who sat next to me on the plane. her husband was american and she was going to visit. I was able to tell her bout the Bible College and what we did there. God also blessed me because I thought i would miss my last flight, but when I just gave it all to God and knew He would take care of it, the plane ended up being delayed and I got there with plenty of time! God is good~
Please keep Japan in your prayers, they need Jesus! 

I'll try to keep updating. next week i'll be gone camping, but I  hope to be able to post pictures from it when I return. Have a blessed week and remember that God loves you so much! ^_^

1 day left...

The Semester is officially finished...
Finals are done, people are leaving and it's been a super blessed semester.
God stretched me, changed me and broke me so much this semester, but at the same time this semester was so blessed, so amazing and it was all by God's grace. 
One thing that God showed me so much this semester was that He ALWAYS provides! 
So often I say "I know God will provide" but then I go and worry about money, or things that I don't need to worry about about. But God continued to pour our His amazing grace on me and showed me that He will always provide, and I must cling to Him. it reminds me so much of my second semester when I took 'Growing in Grace' class and I kept struggling with it. and then God showed me, that we grow in God's grace by humility and faith. Humility: realizing I can't do it. Faith: knowing God can and relying completely on God for the strength. and it was the same this semester, God showed me that I need to be humble and realize that worrying will not help, but to have faith and trust in God completely for everything knowing that He will always provide.
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus". Philippians 4:19
I leave tomorrow, and I am excited for what God has in store for me this summer and also for my last semester. It's been really sad saying goodbye to the students, but at the same time I know that God has awesome plans for their lives and i'm excited to hear what God does in their lives.
God showed me this semester... of how much I need Him and how much He loves me...
Please keep me and all the students in your prayers as we head back home or to another place God has called us to. God is our strength! And also please pray for Japan, they need Jesus. God loves them so much and they need Jesus.

Be Blessed!    - Allie

6 weeks left...

My mom messaged me today and told me that 6 weeks from today I'll e leaving to come home, and this surprised me chyoo much! I didn't realize how fast time has been going. It's been already 9 weeks since semester started. Times flies. It's been such a huge blessing everyday, it hard but like God really encouraged me in yesterdays W2 teaching which was in 1st Timothy 4. Like we will go through hard times, but God gives us the strength and we need to keep pressing on in Christ's strength and not our own. I wanna post a big update but we are really busy. We leave for Tohoku tomorrow and we won't back until Thursday. Please keep us in prayer and that God would give us boldness to preach the Gospel and share the love of Christ.

God bless,
