She Gets It

By Ryan on March 5, 2014

She’s a young girl in my community. She’s 17 years old. Has braces, short brown hair, and the lives at the front of our community. She and her older sister are the only two Christians in her family. She is shy, yet displays natural leadership abilities. She sees the world through such a unique and uncommon perspective. A perspective of hope and for something more. She’s taken notice of the way the children around her have fallen by the way side. How they’ve slipped into drug addictions. How they’ve developed a joy in going to gaming centers where gambling most likely takes place. And how... Read more

Come With Me

Hello Friends, For those of you who are already subscribed to my blog this post will mostly be geared to the seniors/recent grads but you can still read it of course. ;) I wanted to share with you guys a little bit about why you should say YES to going overseas.

Once upon a time, there was a Waco-Abilenian girl who thought she could make it in the big city with just a GPS as her guide. Ladies and gents, please take notes. Houston does not follow GPS rules because they’re always under construction and always changing their exits on you. They also are little sneakers with their tolls and don’t tell you ahead of time that you must have a toll tag or pay 33 dollars. No mercy for the clueless out-of-towner. None at all. I did have a palm to face moment though when I realized... Read more

Tidings they Bring

By Alexander on December 31, 2016

I remember when I first started to develop expectations of what I wanted to do overseas; one of the first generic ideas to develop was hosting a party where most of the guests were majority people. This Christmas, this goal was realized! It started by running the idea past one of my majority friends who I’ve grown quite close to here. I was reminiscing about how good Christmas time is in the states, how me and my Dad always watch Charlie Brown Christmas together, and how there’s usually desserts out the wazoo (I searched, there is no direct translation of ‘wazoo’ into Arabic). My friend was... Read more
