Just a quick update on myself- I've been sick for the last two weeks, with 3 projects and a content test due. After the first week (which just so happened to coincide with a school holiday) of being real sick, I started feeling better, then Monday morning came around and I started cycling to school again. At that point I lapsed and had some nasty chest coughs. I survived though, it's a great day to be alive. : )
Enough about me though. I really want to take this moment to point out one of the links on my page here to the right. "Mr. Rutgers in Guatemala" - If you haven't clicked on it before, check it out and you might be tremendously encouraged. Dick is a friend of mine that loves the people of Guatemala in a way that is inspiring. I know I'm making a bold claim, but the way he lives his life is an incredible representation of Christ. He faithfully pours himself out all day long working with handicapped children in the various parts of Guatemala, then comes home and nightly cooks for all the kids on his street. Reading his blog has been such a great encouragement to me and I imagine it would be for you as well.
