My life in far...

So I was reading my good friend Abby Thompson's blog that she's been posting from France (which is completely awesome, by the way, and can be followed at ) and I realized that I've been somewhat slack with my blog-updating. And while it may not be as attention grabbing as France, DeKalb is a lovely little town and I'm having a great time working at the church here.

So far, I've done a few little projects to help around the church, cleaned the church a bit and sang in a couple of the services. I haven't played piano any but I know I will be doing that soon so I've been practicing a bit here and there to get back into the swing of it. 

This weekend, we're having a revival here at the church with evangelist Brian Norman. Tonight we are having a bilingual service with the Spanish speaking church here. This should be exciting as I love the Spanish language and will get to speak it a little and, of course, sing in Spanish. Tomorrow morning we are having a time of prayer followed by some outreach. Tomorrow night, we're having another service at which I will be singing, and then Sunday I'll be at the two regular services here at the church, plus an afternoon service at a nursing home at which I'll be speaking. Needless to say, this weekend will be very busy for me.

I know I've already said that the people here are great, but it's worth mentioning again. The Davis's are very hospitable and kind and are making sure that I'm well taken care of. My roomie is awesome. She and I have lots of fun. :) She has a bicycle and there's another one in the basement of the church that wasn't being used so we walked them to the gas station today and put air in the tires and rode around town a little bit. It reminded me of being on Ocracoke Island, except there's no beach. :( My friend Kendra, who I know from IBC also attends church here and I've been able to hang out with her a little bit. That's always a good time. 

Amazingly enough, I've discovered since I moved to IBC that I thoroughly enjoy grocery shopping. Of course, having a kitchen here, it's been great because I've been able to grocery shop for myself and buy yummy, healthy things to make. (This paragraph is mainly for mom. ;)

This has been my life in DeKalb so far. My parents will be mailing me the USB cord for my camera and then I will be able to post pictures. I hope to do some fun stuff in the near future such as a trip to Chicago perhaps and maybe a trip to Minnesota! :)

Until next time:
