This month has been such an action packed ride. I have been home, directed my first play, finished my second semester, traveled through Costa Rica with a good friend from the states and I am now a short term missionary with EBM. Yes!! I just received news that I am now with Evangelical Baptist Mission (www.ebm.org). I still have a lot ahead of me, but this is a huge step that I am so excited to be apart of. EBM is an amazing organization with a biblical approach to missions and great people to help you in your ministry. I still need to finish some paper work and finalize my mission plan. Then I will begin raising support to be here for another year. I am on my way now to a men's retreat with my church here and have already begun a head start of some of the ministries I will be doing for that year. English ministries and discipleship being some of the more major, but I am working my way towards my first sermon in spanish by the end of the summer. At the beginning of the services for the next few months I will be doing short lessons on church history. There are great things ahead and great things behind. I hope to have pictures and stories from the play up in a few day, plus some from my travels these past few days. Thanks for all the prayers and I look forward to here from each of you.

Sorry that it has been a while since my last post. I have been a little busy for the past few weeks. After I made my surprise visit back to the states for my mom's birthday, I came back with two weeks till the play that I have been directing. Now, tonight we have our full dress rehearsal and performances are Friday and Saturday. This has been such an amazing journey full of fun, excitement and of course stress. I hope to have some pictures up in the next few days to let you see my students and all that I have been up to. I know it will be mixed emotions when its all done, but right now I am just enjoying every moment.
