First birthday away from home

Well i spent my 19th birthday away from home.. it was bittersweet. So heres how my day went:
I woke up pretty early and took a shower. Apparently i missed a pretty fun awakening from some of my roommates. They were all going to climb in my bed and wake me up so instead they all sang to me in the bathroom as i brushed my teeth :). Then after breakfast we had our first classroom time. This weeks teaching is on the different characteristics of God. We started looking through the creation story and it was pretty awesome some of the stuff everyone noticed. All through the day everyone kept saying happy birthday and it was great. I love everyone here. a lot. So then after our two teaching sessions we had our first introduction to creative presentations class. But this one was a bit different because it had more of a focus on drama stuff (its not usually like that). The reason it was that way is because we are leaving in about 3 weeks for New Mexico to do a mini outreach. We will be ministering to a correctional facility there through dramas and such. So in todays creative presentation time we did a lot of stretching stuff haha like mimeing so it was a bit of a stretch for me but i had a good time laughing at myself and everyone else. Then after that we had our work duties and mine is dinner prep. I have a feeling its going to be an absolute blast. Again I'm with some pretty fun folks :). Then tonight i played some good ole volleyball. Its going to be a fun week i can tell. Its really starting to feel like my home away from home now. I am really looking forward to see what all God is going to do with my time here. He already has shown me soo much and its only the beginning of the second week! I just hope i can take it in while i can because i know its going to go by wayy too fast. So yeah. That was my eventful day. It was a pretty amazing birthday dare i say it was one of my best. So goodnight all!


  1. I love that you're loving Eagle Rock and all that involves....BUT I still miss you!!! I want a video of the mime presentation sometime :) Keep stretching, physically and spiritually.

  2. Great to read what's going on with you, Janelle. I can understand what you're referring to when you mention lecture topics, since Becca did YWAM, and Abbey is still staffing it now. She started with students several weeks ago, so I'm guessing that she's probably lining right up with you. Sounds like a really cool place where you are. Blessings to you on this awesome journey! ♥Laurie Fulmer
