The Yellow House on top of the Hill

So as you have read I'm in Ravenwood, and if you can figure it out the internet works. It took 3 days- 2 call for help people, one online person, 2 people coming and personally working and finally me doing a system restore on my laptop for it to finally work. But here I am.

The place where I am staying is on the corner of Hawk and Nelson. Ironically there is a Christian band called Hawk Nelson. Tight huh? Anyway they set me up with the entire basement to myself. My own bathroom office, bedroom, private enterance. Its nice. The hard part is getting back from meetings and such for supper and dinner.

I'm not too busy yet. So far I've only met the people at Sheridan, had a few discussions with Arza (the man I'm staying with), been to St. Joe and seen the hospitals, went to a meeting for VBS, set up internet, unpacked some of my stuff, took picturs of Kids for VBS, hung out with kids, met a million people, planned for my lesson sunday night, worked on the passports for vbs, made a movie for sunday night, and made a trip to walmart. Can't escape that walmart :)

There is a girl up here with me, she is working for the children's ranch this summer. She is also from Central. It is nice to have a familiar face. Most of the people I talk to every day are twice my age or atleast 4 years younger. My closest friend here is Arza, he is 79, my next closest is probably Kathy's granddaughter she is 5. She is pistol, but she is fun.

I got to see Heather on webcam. That is a highlight. I miss her so much. I can't wait to see her, to hug her, to speak to her in person.

I hope everything goes well over at NGCC. Expecially for MEDIC. Those kids really need some way to make their Christianity work. To see that its not some stories seperated from reality, but the way to live. The youth programs need some help, I don't think I was the one to help them, but I hope opened their eyes to the need. There is a lot of work to be done. I just wish I was the one to have done it. I trust that God has a purpose for NGCC and the youth of lincoln county. I trust that God had me there for a reason. I just hope I fulfilled that purpose. I really wonder if what I did there was temporary (a class lasts only for an hour, a student leaves after a few years), or more permenant. I hope I caused an upswing, I hope I brought encouragement, I hope I fulfilled God's desires. I suppose time will tell.

Tomorrow is the first Sunday here. It will be interesting. I am still sick. It feels like it has sank into my lungs. I'm having some trouble sleeping. I wake up coughing. Arza is helping me out with that. He is quite the writer. He gives me a couple devotionals every day he writes. Sends them out every day. He is 20 days ahead. I really enjoy talking to Arza. Posted by Picasa

The Delay

Soooo, I'm sick. I'm supposed to be on my way to Ravenwood... but I'm sitting here blogging. Blech. I'm getting better, but I'm still ill. Hopefully I will get to leave tomorrow.

At this time I would like to note that the lovely Heather is displaying refreshing Crush soda. Grape, Orange, or as Heather is drinking Strawberry.

Time to go back to sleep. Good night. Posted by Picasa

The Goodbye

So the day has finally come. Heather graduated. She went home. :( I'm really proud of her, I just wish she didn't have to go. Oh well. As Heather put it we have things to take care of. At church today they called her my fiancee. I called her, yesterday, but we were so tired yesterday that we didn't get to talk on MSN. I hope she gets on today. It was busy today. A sermon and meeting. It was my last one and NGCC.

Wedness day I'm going to Ravenwood for my internship. I need to pack, wash clothes, get my eyes checked, sleep, oil change, talk to Heather, e-mail NGCC, sleep.

Anyway I hope to see you all soon. Thanks for all the fish! Posted by Picasa

The Graduate

I realized why I love Heather tonight. She pushes me to be a better man, more than I would ever desire of myself.

The Mara

This is my princess. Her name is bitter but I call her Heather. She is graduating in a week and I am very proud of her. She also happens to be my favorite person to take pictures of. Any way. This is my woman and you can't take her from me. She reminds me that she is not my possession. She puts up with me when I'm messy :).

This was the last week of classes. Yay, year is nearly over. Only 4 tests this week. Then to Ravenwood for my internship. I'm working on getting my duities at NGCC turned over. Pray.

Mmm did I mention I love my princess?

So I jumped on this guys back to help out clifton in his game. He pulled me off by the neck, but I still got done what I needed. Ouch. My shoulder still hurts. Ong-Bok is an amaizing movie. Watch it.

Mmm this is it. I will write more when I have more time.

Happy Mother's day all. Posted by Picasa

The Burn

So this week was really rough. One Koffarnus test, one Reese test, one Summa project, one 6 to eight page paper, and one 10 to 12 page paper. Before that a sermon, and my computer died.

I made it. :)

Heather is at my house again this week. Yay! We cleaned my room this weekend that was alot of fun... not really. Its really nice to get through alot of that stuff. There was an endless amount of papers. I still need to organize those files. :(

If you are wondering about this burning Torah. It was Dave Pratts project for Torah. He made a bunch of old looking stuff. So to make it look old we burned the edges.

Two more weeks till the end of school. Two more weeks... I miss Heather just thinking about it.

After a week of not posting you think I would have more... oh yeah I love my new compy! Posted by Picasa
