Hello Friends and Family!

I have made it to day number….37!!! I can NOT even believe it has been this long! In some ways I feel as though I arrived here yesterday, in others… I feel as though I’ve been here for years! God has been blessing me in some INCREDIBLE ways.

Books: Recently I’ve read Pursuit of Holiness, SO INCREDIBLE… definte kick in the butt!
READ IT!!! Next I’ll read A Full Quiver or 12 Ordinary Men (They are on my staff reading list).

Staff: Last night our new staff Ashley started working, she’ll have a full week this week as we are doing BASIC Youth Conflicts, all day long! So please pray for her. God has been working in my heart in a very powerful way through this conference (we’re watching the videos of the conference). Miss Kallie’s (intern) last day is Aug 5, so I’ll be loosing a co-worker and friend then šŸ˜¦ pretty sad about that, but I know God is getting someone else ready for us!

Girls:
Two or Three weeks ago (the days are fuzzy) we got a new resident. She has provided many humorous moments, all of the girls try different games to see what our boundaries are as staff and this one wanted to play the “Hypochondria Game,” it turned into a guessing game for the staff, we tried to predict what pain she would come to us with šŸ™‚ Please pray for her to receive Christ as Savior and Lord, she claims a “salvation experience” but her life is talking louder, against her.

I had my first physical altercation yesterday… I’m totally okay, just a small bump on my head from an ironing board… forgot to make sure the environment was safe… I’ve learned my lesson. The girl made a threatening motion physically so she needed restrained. This specific girl has been dealing with a lot of JUNK and spiritual warfare.

One of my co-workers (and friend) and I went to Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure on Thursday, wicked expensive, we definitely learned our lesson about purchasing the tickets ahead of time online, and now that I have a FL drivers license I would definitely make sure I get that discount. So… I got to ride Deulling Dragons (my new favorite coaster) and The HULK… absoulutely awesome! We were in the front for both rides!!!!

Well I need to go home and rest! So I’ll leave you all with that… If you have any questions I’d love to hear from you… I feel like I live, sleep, eat, and breathe teenage girls, so variety and balance would be nice šŸ™‚

Please keep praying for me, I feel like each day is a Spiritual Battle, but I’m confident that the Battle belongs to the Lord and that He has already won!
