Hi! It’s been t0o long, I know. The end of the semester was crazy, but I’m not at all disappointed with my grades. So that’s good.
Some of you know how much I hate the month of May. If you didn’t know that, now you do and here’s why: on My 5 (Cinco de Mayo, in Spanish) 2004, I had a roll – over accident on interstate 24 going from Nashville to Atlanta at the start of the summer between my sophomore and junior years of college. It was very terrifying. That’s why I don’t really fancy May. But, this month hasn’t been all that bad. One of the most redeeming things about it was being able to contribute my Compassion Funds to my good friend Amanda. I’m so excited that I get to partner in sending someone into the world to spread the love of Christ!
Now that we’ve redeemed May, on to June and July. The summer’s Compassion Funds will be given to Baja Missions at the end of the summer. Baja Missions is an organization that facillitates mission work to the Churches of Christ in Baja California, Mexico (www.bajamissions.us ) I will be translating all summer for the groups that come down from the US to work with the different Baja churches. Groups give us a stipend each week to help us out, so I will be saving half as a mini-nest egg for when I return, and half will be given back to Baja Missions for food relief or church building renovations or anything one of the churches might need. I’m really excited for what God has in store for me, the Mexicans and the Americans who come to work this summer.
I’ll be uptdating the blog periodically and I will also be e-mailing out a weekly newsletter with pictures and updates about each of my 8 weeks there.
Please e-mail me if you would like to be on the mailing list for updates: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy June! 🙂
