Guatemala Bound!

Wesley and I are heading to Guatemala this week on a medical mission trip. We are going with the church that I grew up in - First Baptist Church of Dothan. My dad really wanted us to go on a mission trip last year, but having just graduated and starting a new job, we didn't feel like we could take a whole week off. We are both really looking forward to it this time! I am a little nervous that I am not going to know exactly how to treat the people there since my background since nursing school has been Mother/Baby, but I have been reading about the diseases that are most commonly seen in Guatemala, and I am praying that all of the info that I learned in school will come back to me! Please pray for our safety and the health of the team going and that we can minister to the sick people of Guatemala.

P.S. I am going to be Mrs. Wesley Pack in 200 days...but who's counting??

Mr. and Mrs. Steppe

This past weekend was Alana and David's wedding in Dothan! It was a lot of fun to get to see so many of my closest friends that I rarely get to see now that we have all graduated. All of my best friends from high school were bridesmaids in the wedding, and most of my college friends were in town for the entire weekend to attend the rehersal dinner and bridesmaid brunch. The wedding was different than most weddings because it was a military wedding. David is in the US Navy so he wore his dress whites for the ceremony, and then after the wedding they had the sword cermony! The reception was at the Wiregrass Art Museum! We all had a great time dancing...Wesley especially enjoyed the food! They served pizza, barbeque, and mashed potatoes...what guy doesn't love those foods??
Here is a picture of some of the girls at the Dothan Country Club for the rehersal dinner Friday night.

It was such a fun weekend and I am so happy for Alana and David!

Joining the blogging world!

For the past year or so I have enjoyed reading other people's blogs. I never started a blog because I felt like I didn't have much to blog about! I have decided to start blogging as a way to journal and as a way to keep in touch with friends. The title "Becoming Part of the Pack" refers to my recent engagement to Wesley Pack. Ephesians 5:31 says "a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh," so techinically I will indeed become part of the Pack! We are getting married in March of 2010. We cannot wait to begin our lives as husband and wife!
