I went through an eye opening experience that made me realize that I need to turn my life in a different direction. One way I knew I needed to do this was through my faith. And I'd like to go on that faith journey with all of you. <3
People overlook those around them when serving others. We overlook our neighbors and go to those in other states and towns or countries to help others. Where it is very important to help others who are suffering in other places, sometimes your friends and families need help too.
I am on an alternative spring break in Huntsville, Alabama. I’m from Michigan and so I traveled pretty far to help others. But to be honest, I’m struggling a lot. And I’m being overlooked. We focus so much on people who are different or foreign when there are people who are need support and love right where you are.
Please don’t overlook your friends and family. Just because they’re not poor or starving, doesn’t mean they don’t need love and support.
I tried to upload a video a couple of times but it didn’t work. Basically, I’m here in Huntsville, Alabama working with my church and Habitat For Humanity. We started working today on demolishing a house and got about 1/4 of the way through it. It was really fun to be able to tear down walls and such. Something that you don’t get to do everyday.
I also have no idea what to give up for lent. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
Unfortunately, I am struggling with some depression right now. It’s really tough because we are supposed to be having fun as a group and I feel as if I can’t talk to anyone. I just seem so unhappy and unapproachable which makes it hard to make friends. I’m hoping I’ll be better tomorrow.
I hope you all have a lovely week and I hope to check in with you all every once in a while.
I apologize for not being able to upload a video, like I had wanted. But I am going to Huntsville, Alabama on an alternative spring break today. I’ll be leaving very very early.
Please pray for all of us going on trips that we make it there safely and are able to carry out God’s work with grace.
I hope you all have lovely weeks.
