As many of you may know, after my mom passed away in mid-september of last year, I decided to take a break from college and attend again the next year. This decision has been both good and bad for me. First off, it's been a blessing to have so much time to build on my relationships with my family, which is something that many of us do not have the opportunity to do with our busy lives. Secondly, I've had way too much time on my hands that I don't know what to do with it and find myself extremely bored and alone way too often. Lastly, taking the year off has already given me time to experience some things I'll never forget, especially my recent trip to Oregon with my grandpa (dad's dad) to visit our family out there. Another one of these offers has popped up in the form of a mission trip to Guatemala with my church in mid-march. I've seen or heard of so many people that say how amazing countries in Central America are and how life changing their mission trip was. Unfortunately but understandably, this trip is not going to be cheap. Me and my grandpa (mom's dad) are looking for help to cover the cost of the trip and for the things that need to be paid while we are away. I truly do appreciate any and all donations that are made and will be working hard to try to find funds of my own to use in this trip. This is sure to be a life changing experience that I'm sure I'll never forget and I thank you all for your help!
