howdy y'all

The past few weeks I was able to spend in Texas visiting my brother+sisterinlaw and my adorable niece! We stayed quite busy-starting off by celebrating Ellie's first birthday and ending with an across-town move! What a fun stay, and I was even able to squeeze in two hangouts with a friend from Colorado!

Isn't she the cutest!?

"We are painfully incomplete. What we do with that shapes the story of our lives. Desire-longing-can lead us home to God...It's as though we still have a memory of the Garden of Eden, and we are homesick for something we just can't quite get our hands around here. These longings are the holes in our soul. They tell us something important-that we need God...These longings are not meant to go away this side of heaven. We are like Swiss cheese, and the holes in us are actually supposed to be there. The holes are the things that make us who we are. The holes are the places God has reserved in us for Himself! The longings identify our real hunger. A hunger that drives us to Him to be satisfied."

Isaiah 42:16
"I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them."

don't make us say goodbye!

The first group's flight out is at 4am and no one is very eager to say goodbye. Some of us are even willing to sleep on the floor to still hang out for a few extra hours. :)

Tonight's culture night featured Singapore and Mexico. Needless to say it was the bomb. Some pepper practical jokes, fake mustaches all around, and even a pinata!

A couple of the teams grouped up this week for team night. We ended up at Jive's, a local coffee shop playing spicy uno and listening to live music. So fun!

out and about

This free day was a blast. A couple of girls and I explored downtown, went to a coworker's house for baklava, had dinner in Manitou, and took a little detour through Cave of the Winds and Garden of the Gods on our way back to the Glen.

hole in one

Team night this week was basically program night. We all ended up at a $2 mini golf joint filled with statues of all sorts of random animals. And for the record, I did get a hole in one!

the fourth

We went to the air force base to watch fireworks for the Fourth of July. The next night was our turn at culture night! We had barbeque pulled pork sandwiches, green bean casserole, corn bread, and a pizza cookie to look like an American flag. It was such a fun night filled with some trivia and games! As a bonus we took the opportunity to introduce everyone to an American classic, The Sandlot!

psalm 116:5-9

The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, o my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling; that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

My Dutch friends are teaching me their biking ways. We used our free day to bike to Garden of the Gods, just a few rolling hills away from Glen Eyrie.

mate in manitou

After our trip to Pike's Peak we stopped to eat lunch in Manitou Springs. Some of us ventured into a mate cafe, which was a very new experience for most. We embraced our hippie.
