"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. :)

I finally gave in and went to BDubs.

the final banquet

mexico meets singapore

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!
