Yesterday I got to engage in spriritual conversations and learn about fencing all in one place! A group of students and leaders on the project went to Caugus, about an hour from San German, to watch the mini Olympics (I’m not exactly sure of the correct terminology but I know the gold and silver medalists go on to compete for Puerto Rico). Bianca, … Continue reading Fencing and Friends
It’s the second week here in Puerto Rico! I’ve been learning a lot as an intern this time around both about myself and my relationship with God and about being a leader. This week we’ve been doing outreach and going to college campuses in the area to share the gospel as well as the beach and the Olympic training center of Puerto Rico. Some of … Continue reading Spreading the Word
At 5:30 tomorrow morning I will be on my way back to Puerto Rico! It’s weird to think a whole year has gone by already, but I guess time flies when you’re having fun. As excited as I am, I’m also a little nervous about this year’s trip because I’ll have more responsibility this year as an intern and sometimes with more responsibility I put … Continue reading Hasta La Vista!

Now, to update you on the preparation and fundraising for my trip! The tshirts are … Continue reading The Home Stretch

I thought that I would be able to get my support letters out earlier because I already knew what to write in the letters, when to send them, what to include and … Continue reading Fundraising Round 2
I am so excited to be going back to Puerto Rico this summer with Athletes in Action! And this time as an intern with the project! I have even been learning some Espanol for this time around (I took 3 years of french in high school and middle school and did not know any Spanish last year)! Since returning from Puerto Rico in June, God … Continue reading Back At It
During the first week of the trip, Peter Gonazalez, an AIA staff member from Arizona, talked to us about the Gospel. He laid it out in a way that wasn’t boring to me. It actually made a lot of sense the way he said it. Talks about the gospel can often be extremely dry and heavy, but Peter’s talk showed me a new way to look at it and revealed to me why we live for God and … Continue reading The Gospel on SOUNDCLOUD!!!!!
