It's Time to get ready to go back!

I have truly been slow in updating my blog. Here's a small overview of what I've been up to:
I've been working with the youth group (Youth In Motion) at my home church as a leader, as well as helping the youth director come up with some ideas on how to do things even better than they are already going.
I've also been teaching weekly at our Friday night AWANA Bible study, looking at the life of Jesus.
Finally, I've been taking care of everything I need to be a substitute teacher, both after spring break and into next school year (just got things in on Mondy 'cuz I had to take a class first).

There's some other good news, too. I am going back to the Czech Republic this summer as an intern leader again! I just found out a few weeks ago that I was accepted and can start raising support, so I'll be sending out some letters soon. I'm also excited because two of my Czech friends are applying to be on my intern team. This will present a unique set of challenges, but I think will be beneficial for all of us. (by the way, their English skills are impeccable)

Please pray for me as I prepare for Czech, will be speaking several times over the next 1 1/2 weeks, and continue to do as much as I can to serve my church and the people here until I leave.

The time has flown by since I've been home.
