Well, I am now sitting back in my apartment after our trip to the mountains, and the healing of my battle wounds begins! Just kidding. I have a few bruises on my knees, but that's the worst of it. The other night I was asked to share my testimony during the service in the evening. So, after worship and an awesome time of prayer, I shared about my past, my present and some of my dreams for the future. We laughed, we cried... it was good. I am glad that God was able to use my story to encourage and challenge the others. I've also had some good opportunities just to chat and get to know some of the girls better. I sat on the bus with Kika, 15, for a good chunk of time. I don't think I've ever had the chance to just sit and talk with her one on one. She's always with others, and I am very grateful for that chance to just talk. About stuff at home, school and how she toothpasted on of the boy's last night! Good times. :) So, overall, it was a great time, physically, relationally and spiritually. Thank you for your prayers!
