I didn't realize you are from Gilroy! I've been there dozens of times! And hume! Ahhhh, so glad that someone on the team other than myself and Naomi have experience the wonders of Hume Lake! I'll be there soon!
Hey there! How did your Grandpa's surgery go? I'll definitely keep your support raising in my prayers. It can be a challenge sometimes. I was reading 2 Corinthians 8-9 this morning, and it really encouraged me and reminded me that when we get the word out about what we're doing and what our financial needs are we're giving people a chance to "excel in the grace of giving" :-) Things are going pretty well for me. Just got my first batch of support letters out and working on getting some of the paperwork finished up and in the mail.
Hey Tricia! I will definitely be praying for support raising and your grandpa. I hope to hear from you on Friday about God's provision and physician-nature with his recovery! No worries about your hesitancy with languages -- I taught in an innercity DC school where kids could barely even read, and I still had them saying something! Start looking at the resources on the JC team site to get you started.
