Update the Third

Dear me, what is this blog coming to—three of the last four posts being updates? I truly apologize for my absence on here, but fortunately, I’m here to tell you that it won’t last much longer.

First off, early tomorrow I leave for a mission trip with my church.  We’re headed for a Native American reservation in South Dakota, where we’ll be presenting a VBS to two tiny villages, as well as hosting a teen outreach in a bigger town. I’m pretty excited, but I’d really appreciate prayer, if you think of it. Please pray for me, that I’ll be selfless and focused on God and blessing the kids—often I get distracted and focus too much on myself, the other teens I’m working with, etc, Please pray that I’ll have the right focus. Please also pray for our whole team, that we’ll know how to reach these children who have never had a picture of real love before, and for the Native Americans themselves, that they’ll be open to the truth and love of Jesus.

Second, once I get back, I’ll start posting again! That should be sometime during the first week of August. I’ve really missed writing posts and interacting with all you wonderful bloggers and followers. I’m especially excited to discuss some of the books I’ve read these past two months. Thanks for sticking with me through these down weeks. See you then!
