It's the most wonderful time of the year...



Hello everybody!
Christmas is almost here! I can't believe it, really. Also, the lecture phase here at YWAM is coming to an end. This Wednesday is our last day, then it's off on break`til the 3rd of next year! 2010, sounds so ominous.
Today is my wonderful classmate and next door neighbor, Sabrina's birthday! Some of the girls and I were able to get up and make her a surprise breakfast (complete with adorable serving tray :P ). Then her and I, along with one of our staff members made an awesome brunch for everyone else, if I do say so myself... stuffed french toast, homemade cream filled donuts, cheesy eggs and banana pudding. woohoo! ;)
I'm currently reading a book called "living life on the edge" by Loren Cunningham. So good! I recommend it to everyone. IT's mostly about trusting God to supply for your every need. Loren Cunningham has some pretty wild stories about how God has provided for him. Just reading it is a faith booster. It's nuts.
I am trying to work on becoming more like that.
Keep me in your prayers as we pack for Thailand. We are going language and culture class crazy right now! :P
Alright, off to a student Christmas party!
Much Love,
Cheyenne.

Fall is Coming! DTS- Youth With A Mission

Dear Friends and Family,
I'm excited to fill you in a little on what has been going on in my life. This summer I had the opportunity to go to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, again. It was so great to continue to build upon the relationships me, and the team from Arrowhead Bible Camp, had made in years past. I saw so many amazing things there and was able to meet many new kids. We ended up with quite a large group this year and were able to stretch out to more orphanages. We had just enough people to bring down ALL of the supplies the missionaries needed inside our luggage. How cool! Thank you so much for your prayers and support. If you would like to hear more about the trip and see pictures, please e-mail me at cheyenneclark@yahoo.com. I would be more than happy to share with you.
And so, right now I find myself back in the states preparing myself for this fall. A few weeks ago
I received my acceptance letter to attend Youth With A Mission's Discipleship Training School (DTS). I'm very excited about this opportunity! Youth With A mission is an International program to equip young people with the skills and knowledge to go abroad and share the love of Christ.
The DTS lecture phase is 5 months of intense studies and schooling. The base I will be attending is YWAM of the North-woods and is located in Weyerhaeuser, Wi. I've been involved with other programs of theirs over the past year and love the campus. However, after the 5 month classroom phase on campus, my class will be going way off-campus! We will be going overseas to live and minister in another culture for two months. Last year they had two groups go out, one to Thailand, to teach english and Bible, and one group to Morocco. Which involved a more quiet approach to sharing God's word, as it is a closed Muslim country to Christians. I'm very excited about this trip as my heart has been drawn more and more towards missionary work throughout the past two years!
And so, now I find myself packing my bags for September 20th and DTS. I'm asking you all for your support. That you keep me in your prayers as I pursue God's will for my life and jump back into the school scene after not being in school for over a year. Also, for your financial support in this. Since this is an intense schooling and heart searching program they do not allow you to work while in DTS. And so along with the acceptance letter came the ever-lovely price tag of 3,200$ for the tuition fee along with an extra 2,000 or more for the outreach phase. After working for a year I had saved up enough money to pay my way, with minimal support from friends and family to go back to Bolivia and so eluded having to send out a bazzilion support letters. (All of you who know me know how much I hate having to ask for money) But if I am to do this I am trusting God will provide for this tuition fee!
So please, keep me in your prayers! If you feel God leading you to support me financially, you are very welcome to. Jst send a check to: Cheyenne Clark/DTS 1214 20th street Cameron, Wi 54822 All moneys will go directly to my tuition account. Thank you all for your prayers and love! Please continue to pray for me for my worry and anxiety I'm feeling. That I would give them all to God completely!
I end this with my favorite verse, which I call my “life verse”. 1st Thessalonians 5:24- “The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it.”
With Much Love! ~Cheyenne

It's wild...

So, I've decided that I am just going to do a video entry for the next blog and get y'all up to date on what's been going on in my life. Too much to type, too little time. I'm at Horhays Coffee Shop in Minocqua right now.
Much love.
Chey.

Finding where I am or Day One.

So, I made it safely to Minocqua! Right now I'm at the public library using their wi-fi. I haven't been in here in ages! So many memories here.
It was so weird driving here and knowing that I'm not just coming for a visit, I'm gonna be here for awhile. But so good.
I was very scared when I left home, what if I got it all wrong?
But God was good on the way.
His grace and peace did cover me. :)
I called and volunteered at the Rhinelander food pantry. We'll see how that goes.
I kind of like the whole idea of not having to work, but being able to volunteer everywhere.
Now, to continue to ask God to show why the heck I am here!
*Stop. Put a pin in it. Hang it on the wall*
I'll keep it posted.

Thoughts of el Dia...

So, you should go read 1 Timothy 1:5.
"But the purpose of the commandment is LOVE from a PURE HEART, from a GOOD CONSCIENCE and from SINCERE FAITH. "
I don't think I've ever read the 1st chapter of Timothy before. But that is a great verse. Read the whole chapter. It really reminds me of why I follow God's law, not because I am a good righteous person, but because I am sinner in need of Grace and called to share His Gospel with the world, and if I'm called to do that my light must not be dirty! Hmm, No matter how many times I've heard that, or something like that, The Holy Spirit always has a way of refreshing it in my mind when I need it. The purpose of the commandment is LOVE. How cool. And it doesn't even stop there, it goes on to tell me where the love comes from. A pure heart is a hard thing to have. It means even my thoughts. Yuck. Sometimes I hate my thoughts because they reflect the condition of my heart. Sometimes I don't like seeing my heart, Lord make it beautiful to look at! So yeah. I hope that encourages you too. So much to learn, just when you think you know everything...
Peace.
Chey.

# 1...

I have adorable siblings. I took them out for a day on the town. :)










# 2- I really wish fantastical things were real. I wish when I moved my fingers music would come out. I wish that the world was so full of color the way I want it. I wish we really had knights in shining armor and perilous quests. I wish that someday I will be able to risk my life for something I believe in. I wish. I wish. I wish. Also, I wish I could get away with having pink hair... but that's never gonna happen. :P

I'm thankful that walmart sells cheap kites that actually flew today. it was fun to see the kids faces. and elmo soaring far above the clouds... *sigh* oh to be a child again.

The Sky Is Blue...

Some things aren't so obvious.
I just want to hear God's voice.

Tangerine Trees and Marmalade Skies...

So, the 8th.
Well, work had been wierd and crazy and exhausting and all that jazz.
I'm seriously contemplating quitting and getting a job in Minocqua. I haven't brought that up to my parents yet however.
I'm getting stoked for Bolivia.
Yay.
Oh, My new Mac came a couple weeks ago. That is exciting.
AND I got a new phone.
So, send me your #'s.
Mine is still the same. Which I am incredibly thankful for.
Oh, so on the way home from work today I stopped at the gas station and got some cappucino with my gas and this cute guy payed for my coffee. :/
Anyway, I have been exhausted but God has sustained me so faithfully. It is amazing.
I haven't been able to sleep, like at all the past week.
Yesterday was a crazy day, I was up since 5am for the past two days and hadn't slept, got to work, they sent my supervisor home, I got called into the office, etc, etc. Ugh. Then I was scheduled to leave at 3, I left at almost 5.
I went home, my body totally shut own. I started bawling my eyes out in my bedroom for no reason at all.
Then I fell asleep, AT SIX, haha. I slept as usual, waking up thirty times during the night, but I slet hard in between and didn't wake till 8 am. Ahhh. That was the most needed sleep I've ever had.
So, yeah.
Today was better.
I got to go to church even though I had to leave early for work and didn't get to see the baptism. But God so sustained me as I went. I went home filled and happy, instead of drained and empty. It's amazing how much worship can effect your mood. Even when the day is bad. I've been working on being the flower in the book Hinds Feet On High Places, the flower is called Acceptance-With-Joy. It's amazing how much an allagory can ger the point across so well. :)
I strongly recommend that book, btw.
Well, I have to go check my e-bay account. Fun fun.
Peace and The Flower,
Chey.

Good thing blogs don't have late fees...

Just got back home from a weekend road trip. woo hoo. I took Wyn and Jo with me to Black River Falls to visit my awesome Grandma D. We had a chick flick night watching Andre' and Miss Congeniality (I love that movie so much), toured BRFalls this morning then went shopping in Eau Claire on the way home. Today it was sunny and 35... ahhhh bliss. I had my sunroof open and music playing. It felt so great.
Oh, crazy time... so I heard someone in the mall call my name.
I was like hmm...
I wonder who else is named Cheyenne. But I turned around to see a family I hadn't seen in about 4 years! It was crazy. Brought back so many memories. It was crazy to see the little girl all grown up and in HIGHSCHOOL. Ahhh, where does the time go? I feel so old.
*sigh*
I should move back to Minocqua for a few months or something. I actually do miss it.
Work is cutting my hours more than I anticipated. :/ I need another job.
Good luck, huh?
Mmhmm.
I really need to get more money in the Bolivia account.
I'm going back and trying to pay my own way. Eek.
I'm already stoked though. :)
I could live there.
Maybe I will.
I'm applying for YWAM in Scotland for this fall.
I hope it works out.
:)
Peace and Love from Jesus,
Cheyenne.

[Oh My]

I have off from work today. I've been getting stuff done for the Drama Class and packing away Christmas stuff all day. I am going to go crazy! I am not used to be home all day. Let's go...
I am excited for drama to be starting up again, and yet at the same time my anxiety is back for the occasion. Ugh. just thinking about all I have to get done makes my heart rate raise quickly. In my mind I stay calm, but I have an issue with my body not agreeing with me! I get all sick and yuck. BUT it will be good. And I do love the Drama group. I just have to get into it, and I will be fine. It's the planning involved I don't like. I need a lot more help this time for sure. I felt like a chicken with my head cut off before, so I'm definitely taking on some volunteers for this play! But I am excited. The kids are great.
Yeah...
I gotta go. I think I need some vitamin D, too bad it reached it's high of -5 today. :/
I need sunshine! Ahhhaa, okay.
Peace and Love.
<3

I'm such an idiot...

I just thought you'd like to know. Tonight I learned never to take a little car with no 4x4 on the stupid lake. Ever. Especially when it's not yours. :/
Why do I insist on learning things the hard way?
*sigh*
On the brighter side, I wrote today. I actually sat down and wrote. It felt quite good. Ad we now have some material forming for our pro-life documentary (Erika and I). I can't wait for Rachel to come home. I'm sure she would love this.
Peace in an unstable world,
Cheyenne.

So It's 2009...

And I've never before entered into a year without any huge expectations. I'm not claiming this as "the best year of my life" and my resolutions are simple promises to myself and my God. I think I'm entering this year with more curiosity then anything. What will it hold? Where will God take me? And what is going to happen in our nation in 2009? I'm almost afraid, but I know things have to come. So in a way, I guess it is a small excitement. But not really. I'll just be content. I know change is coming and I am ready for it. Be it good or bad. Bring it on 2009! Bring it on..
