I am a missionary in Spain who desires for the power of the Holy Spirit to be unleashed in me, to be unabashed about the love of Christ, and unafraid to go where God calls. These are my stories in this journey of letting God have everything.

4th of July

As basically all of you know, today is the 4th of July. That means a lot more to Americans in America than to most other people in the world. I'm actually really good friends with quite a few Brits, so this holiday can actually be a bit awkward. Anyway, I did celebrate today in a small way by going with 15 other Americans to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. It was a good time with friends eating way too much food. Here are a couple of things that I do miss from celebrating this holiday in the U.S.
  • Going to the Nes-L-Inn with Ross, Heidi, Nate, Lindsay, and Andy. I miss you guys!!!
  • Going to Antietam Battlefield with my parents to watch the fireworks and hanging out with Laura. Miss you Laura!!!
  • Going downtown GR early making a picnic, playing games with Rach (and beating her of course) and then watching the fireworks over the Grand River with her and Joe. I miss you guys too!!!
  • Eating wonderful American picnic food such as Italian sausage on the grill, potato salad, fruit salad, corn on the cob, and other great stuff.
There are certainly some wonderful traditions and friends that I miss during this time of year, but it is kind of fun to start new traditions and experience new holidays! For all you Americans, Happy 4th!

We missed you at the Nes-l-Inn this year! It just isn't the same without you. Next year?
