What does a missionary do with her time???

Why volunteer of course.

I've been feeling slightly overwhelmed as of late, probably because I sometimes lack the ability to say no. Most of the things I can't say no to are things that are volunteer work. Stuff with counterculture comes up from time to time, stuff with the youth group that I am not yet the director of but still serve in a volunteer capacity, and as of late, I'm helping out my friends over at Mountain TOP to get some stuff ready for the summer.

When I was on staff there, a lot of our time was spent filling out what we called FUP sheets (Family Unit Profile) basically there were just crates and crates and crates of these sheets. I even have a great picture of me sleeping on the crates... ok so maybe it was a staged picture. But I'm sure I was tired. What can you expect on 5 hours of sleep a night?


In any case, these sheets were glued to our palms the whole summer, and we would have to rewrite the ones that we went to visit. I learned how to write really fast that summer I think. Sometimes I would even have nightmares about those yellow sheets.

Well the good folks on the mountain are going digital, so I'm helping by putting some old sheets into their new database. Good times for sure. I always feel guilty that I can't help in other ways for an awesome ministry that I love, so now my nights are filled with entering data and being flooded with old memories of ages past. Ok, so maybe it was only 5 years ago. But still, a lot has happened in those 5 years.

In any case, blogging has been sparse, and this is no excuse, but with gearing down at one job to gear up at another, you must forgive me. I wish I had some amazing story to tell about stuff that is going on at work or something, but right now it is quite the opposite of good stories, and I'm just not really ever in the mood to tell bad stories about stuff that is happening. Hopefully I'll have some great stories to tell as I get closer to being a youth director. After all, I do have some awesome trips with the youth and others over the summer that I am certain will at least provide a story now and again.
