Let's Get Rowdy!

So Yesterday heather and I left port alberni to start our treak over the rockies and to school. So here's just a little update on how things are going for us!

Heather and dad did a wonderful job packing up the car!

We caught the 12:45 ferry and besides the fact that it was a little late there were no long waits or problems there...
On our way to Ani's Nana's home... that's where we spent last night and are spending tonight... we were able to stop by the Bartels and drop off a present for Katie and Jon's baby. Turns out they live 2 blocks away from Nana's!

Once we got to Nana's we had a beautiful dinner and watched some tv... how I love extreame makeover home edition!

This morning to were able to sleep in.. well atleast I was turns out heather was up at 7:30 hahaha sucker!

After a quick breakfast and packing up we were off to the PNE for the day!

Getting to the PNE went better than expected... we made one wrong turn... Dumb google maps... then it turns out there was an accident on the Highway we were taking... fortunitly for us it was clearned by the time we got there it was just a bit congested...
A bit of the traffic but not the worst of it

The PNE was a BLAST! We just walked around looking at the booths and took in a few of the shows... we saw the calvery ride, they were wonderful!

Then there was the real reason for our trip to the PNE AARON PRITTCHET!!!! He put on an amazing show!!! We had the opportunity to hear a bunch of his new stuff that will be coming out Sept. 9th... I'm pretty sure the best part of the show though was the fact that we got to sit in the Senior's secation! We didn't realize this when we sat down at 5:30 to save our seats but slowly and surley they joined us... let me tell you they probably had the best sense of humor there!

Well that's about the extent of our trip so far and I better get to bed becasue we need to be heading out of here by 7:30am tomorrow... we're hoping to make it to Ani's in Lethbridge which is a 14 hour drive heather tells me... We'll keep you posted as our trip goes on!

PS... sorry for all the spelling errors that are in this blog... my fingers aren't working well today for some reason...

Guatemala 09???

This summer I started to think about what I'm going to do next spring/summer after I graduate... anyways I want to do missions but I'm not really sure if that is the time or if I should hang around port and work... well reciently I have been invited to go back to guatemala and work alongside Bob and Shirley (the directors of the school I went to there). Recently they have decided after much prayer that God is calling them into a new ministry and that though Fuego was amazing and life changing for many people it has run it's course. They aren't entirley sure what this new ministry will entail at this point they are providing a place for groups from Canada and the States. They will help these groups connect with local ministries and missionaries and guide them as they serve in Guatemala. I'm not entirley sure if or how I fit into this plan but I'm praying that God will show me if I do. I just want to know that whether this is his plan for me at this time. If you remember you can pray for me that God will show me if this is the place he wants me at this point in my life! Thanks I'll keep you updated as I hear more and make a decission.

Another little thing you can pray for is my friend from School, Dawn. She's heading out in a month to go and work with troubled youth in London, England for a year! Right now she's having some problems getting a Visa. She knows for sure she can go but if she can get a 1 year visa rather than 2, 6 month visas her life would be much easier. Thanks!
