Well, i know i haven't officially announced it via this blog contraption...but Geoff and i are officially engaged!!!! For more details on the Blessed proposal, you'll just have to see me in person...but in was the greatest honor of this earthly life to accept such a proposal from such a man.

Can i just say, it's been fairly entertaining to my simple mind to work at a church with such initials as "SMAC!" South MacArthur Church has been a blessing to me this summer in many ways. This picture to the right is me in a frustrated moment as i am in jail AGAIN...we were playing this Great game of Gold Rush, a variant of capture the flag. :) The kids here are great fun. It has been a joy to spend time with two of my long time heroes, Mark and Jackie Gorena, and to meet many others that i love...especially Dot Smith, the lady whose home i have been able to stay at. Hallelujah for such women of faith! I'm finishing the last week of my internship right now and we're ending on a high note: high school girls slumber party tonight at the building, jr. high lock-in friday night, and i've GOT to finish this slideshow thing by sunday, my last day!

BUT, the news i'm writing to announce with GREAT joy is that GEOFF IS BACK WITH ME in Texas!!!! I knew i liked this guy, but having him back here again with me has only increased that "like" exponentially! I didn't know it was possible to have so much fun hanging out with another person! I've had him working with me too...finally got another intern up here! He has taught class for the last two sunday's and it has been AMAZING to watch him, and learn from him.

Every day we learn more about each other...and we are thoroughly enjoying learning to "endure" one another. :)

We are hopefully going to be in abilene on MONDAY, august 7th...

that's the briefest update i can muster...i have to work on this slideshow and sleepover thing now!!!!


"Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror;
then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully,
even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE."
