Random events

So, I just got back from yet another youth trip that involved me driving a 15 passenger van. We went to Greer's Ferry Arkansas. It was a lot of fun playing on the lake. I'm in the process of losing the toe nail on my big toe after falling from a small rock face by on the lake. Not fun.

I have also had the opportunity to visit St. Jude Research Hospital in downtown Memphis the last few weeks to see their AIDS clinic. It was a great experience. I can't say much about the patients because of confidentiality, but I did learn more about the importance of adherence to the medications. It was also nice because I got to shadow a nurse practitioner and a social worker as they met with patients. Based on the recommendation of a nurse in my church who works there, I am somewhat considering taking some pre-reqs for nursing school this fall with the goal of coming back from africa and getting a masters to be a practitioner. This has all happened in the last few weeks, so I'm going to give it another few weeks of prayer and seeking advice. It will at least give me something else besides seminary to think about while I'm in Africa. I'd appreciate your prayers conerning this.

The time I had with Heather was amazing. We did lots of cool stuff and had a lot of things confirmed about our relationship. Distance is difficult. Also, I should have my one-time complete in the next week or so. Hurray!
