In other news....Kyle and I have joined the staff of Catalyst, our Church youth group! We we're approached last Sunday about this and asked to pray about it and come check it out on Wednesday night. When Wednesday night came around we had made our decision to be apart of the team. It's a big youth group and really wild...we're excited! This Thursday-Saturday we'll be headed down to Billings for a big youth conference with the staff and about 50 kids from the youth group. We're both really excited about being apart of Catalyst....who knows maybe we can convince a few of them to head over to Maui;)
That's most of what's been happening in the last few weeks. I really need to post some pics...especially of the snow! haha! We'll see if I actually get pictures up this time:)

In March I moved back to California where I was working and getting ready for the wedding! It was a busy time but very special. I feel so blessed that I had a few months to spend with my parents before getting married.
Kyle and I were married on July 25th, 2009! The week before the wedding was one of the most stressful weeks of my life! On the day of I finally settled down (with a little help from champagne!) and decided to just enjoy the day. The day went by so fast and almost seemed like a dream. It was so beautiful and I have so many people to thank for all of the hard work they put into our special day.
After the wedding Kyle and I headed to Puerto Vallarta Mexico!! It was amazing:) Our honeymoon consisted of eating too much at every meal, drinking 'Dirty Monkeys', riding 4-wheelers in the jungle, going on crazy zip-lines in the jungle, hanging out in the pool and of course...other things;) After our honeymoon we headed back to California for a few days and then we drove to Montana to start our new life together.
Kyle and I started working a week after we got home which was a HUGE blessing. Kyle's been doing flooring installation and I've been working as a bank teller. I can honestly say I would never have imagined myself working as a bank teller but here I am counting back cash and writing everything down on carbon paper...haha...the bank I work for is old school!
So far the adjustment has been easier than I thought it would be. Kyle and I are loving being married and having so much fun. I'd love to have a friend or two but I know that takes time so I keep praying! That's our life right now, I'll try and keep the updates coming! I'll post some new pictures soon!

As most of you know my commitment to YWAM Maui will be ending in the beginning of March. I will be headed to Eureka where I’ll be working and finishing wedding plans. Leaving is defiantly bitter sweet, Maui has become my home in many ways and the people here have become like family. Leaving will be hard but I feel blessed to be able to spend time with my family before moving to Montana.
Leaving Maui does present some last financial needs. I’m still needing to buy a plane ticket to the Mainland, I’m in need of $250 for this ticket. I’m also mailing some of my things to Eureka which will be significantly less expensive than flying with them. This will be another $100 for shipping. These are my needs at the moment. If you would like to support me on this venture back to Eureka you can make checks payable to “YWAM” and post to Leah Brandenburg P.O. Box 790237 Paia, Hi 96779.
Thank you for all of your prayers and financial support over the past 3 ½ years. You have been apart of hundreds of changed lives (including mine!) and bringing the hope of Jesus Christ to Nepal, Thailand, Myanmar and China! Thank you for trusting me and believing in what God has called me to do, we’re investing in the eternal!
