The next step..

I am definately not a blogger! But I figure I might as well use one so people can follow my various activities, at least if they want to! :)

So I am leaving in 2 short days for Ensenada, Mexico, and I am excited beyond belief! I can't wait to get back to a place that I love so dearly, and see the people that have a permanent place on my heart. It's almost like seeing family after two years, so exciting!

The first week I am there, I will be working with a group of 20 other people from my church. We will be working mainly with a special needs orphanage, Gabriel House, doing various things with the kids and for the staff members. I am excited to be able to see a different part of Mexico, it will be an experience I will never forget, I'm sure. There is a video on their website that will move you to tears, and definately gets me excited to go and serve in this area. Another part of serving at the Gabriel House is through building onto their dorms. We will be starting a project for them to be able to care for even more children. Throughout other parts of the week, we will also be doing VBS in a village. Doing things such as playing with the kids, doing crafts, singing songs, and performing skits.

On June 27, the group from my church will be flying back home while I stay behind. As they travel on to San Diego, I will be starting the next part of my trip. Until July 18th, I will be doing what we call an "informal internship" with Rick and Tammie. I will stay with them for three weeks, doing a variety of things, many of which I don't know at this point. I would have to say I am very excited for this, to be taking a next step in my journey is exciting.

I will try to get to a computer at some point throughout my time there to try to get some of my thoughts down, for me and for you. Inform you on how life has gone and things I have been doing! I can't promise a lot! But I will definately try! :) Thank you for all of your prayers and support! I greatly appreciate it!!
