two days left. weÂ´ll leave tuesday morning. in one way it feels like iÂ´ve been here forever. and at the same time it feels like itÂ´s only been a few days. either way, i canÂ´t figure out if i want to go home or not.
green day is playing on the radio right now. makes me think of toe and our conversation. makes me miss a few people.
madrid is beautiful. no, seriously, it is. we went and saw the Royal Palace. wow. now that was cool. itÂ´s busy here and i like it. i like the old parts of madrid the best. iÂ´ve figured out where i want my apartment. itÂ´s right across from the palace. nice location, right?
we did some tv recording yesterday. yes, weÂ´ll be on some christian channel at some point. how did that happen? my mom met some people and we ended up in a studio in front of cameras and hot lights… it was rather fun — although taping myself sharing a testimony wasnÂ´t all that fun. it was more nerve racking.
we spent a day with kids on thursday. it was a childrens camp and at first i thought i was going to go insane. it was loud and there were alot of kids. i love working with kids, but at times it was tough with these children. it was hard to stay in control. that evening we did a service and the Lord blessed us. somehow we got through to these children and were praying for them and ended up loving these kids so much. it was really great. all the girls wanted to know if all my family had red hair (i had just told them that julia was my sister, but thatÂ´s okay). they wanted to know if julia and i had boyfriends. nope. everyone in my family who isnÂ´t married is single. the female monitors then asked how old my brother was. weird.
we rule the Â¨slap-clap game.Â¨ we totally dominate now. gibraltor, watch out for the US team. next time weÂ´ll cream you.
leslie and i have decided that when iÂ´ve grown up a bit weÂ´re going to take a boat to england and travel there for a bit. when we told the team they all laughed at us. a boat? arenÂ´t we the ones who get motion sickness like big time? well yes, but weÂ´d get by.
everyone has birds here. birds? whatÂ´s so cool about birds?
the Lord has been amazing. we have met incredible people and have been able to experience great things. have you ever stood on a soap-box, with a crowd surrounding you, and openly shared who Jesus is to you? i have. and itÂ´s incredible.
the boys decided that they might be able to get 5 camels for me. iÂ´m not sure thatÂ´s good or not.
