so iÂ´m here in Spain.Â Â after a rather ineresting start to the trip, iÂ´m here and am enjoying it.Â people lost money, we were personally escorted to our plane in JFK because the lines were so long and we didnÂ´t get checked in soon enough, and after i got here i realized that all my flip-flops werenÂ´t in my bag anymore.Â i have a feeling they were stolen (although who would steal Old Navy flip-flops?!) but after i got over the initial frustration and tears (yes, after traveling for 32 hours with not very much sleep i was quite upset about my dear flip-flops) i came to the realization that theyÂ´re only flip-flops and not that big of a deal.
itÂ´s beautiful here.Â spain is always sunny, but itÂ´s not as hot as it was last year (which i liked).Â itÂ´s just as busy and people are out just as late (we ate dinner last night at 12:30).Â
a little bit about what iÂ´m doing… weÂ´ll be participating in a concert style outreach tonight where weÂ´ll do dramas, julia will play, and the whole team will play.Â weÂ´re doing church tomorrow (kelly and i are to head up childrenÂ´s church) and then a beach outreach.Â after that iÂ´m not quite sure whatÂ´s going on.Â we arenÂ´t always told everything that weÂ´re to do.Â : )Â
iÂ´m so excited to be here and to serve the church ofÂ Spain.Â i spent this morning cleaning the church with KurtÂ´s wife, Melanie and after listening to her talk realized how young the church here is.Â theyÂ seem like such young Christians and they need so much care.Â last night i met two young women who attended the conference my daddy, danica,Â and mr. and mrs. hull went to and it was amazing to hear how that conference has really spurred them on to dream bigger about where they want to see education go in this country.Â yes, iÂ´m excited to be here – even if it is for a short while.
iÂ´m at an internet cafe (one of the only places that one can be in an air conditioned room, but itÂ´s too cold for me) and have a camera pointed directly at my face.Â looks like theyÂ´re tightening up security or something.Â i only got 20 minutes and have already used up 14.Â i want to look around a bit on the internet, so iÂ´m done now.
