What happens in Vegas...

... well, I'm not sure how the rest of that goes. Anyway, my EFY travels have taken me as far as Las Vegas now. I'm sorry I haven't been able to keep everyone up to date with my experiences. I don't have too much time to do spend updating my blog. I will post some pictures as soon as I can get the internet here to work on my computer. But just so everyone knows, I am having a blast. It is so much fun to be with the youth of the church. Also, for the most part it has been medically boring the last three weeks. That is a good things since it means most people are health and happy. Only two trips to the hospital/urgent care center since the summer started for my partner and I. Anyway, I wish everyone well and hope to see most everyone in four weeks.

Powerless Power!!!

Well, let's just say that last night was interesting. Right next to UCSB is a mountain that is on fire!!! I know, exciting to say the least. So it isn't bad at all, just ash falling from the sky and thick cloud of smoke. Anyway, that bad thing is that it caused some rolling brown outs or a straight out black out in the whole city. So we are without power and we have all of these kids that want pizza (that isn't coming anymore). So it is basically the basis of a stressful situation. Though it didn't cause much strife among the leadership I work with. I see them every day and they handle things well, all the time but I was just so impressed with the control they showed during this high
elevated stressful time. Like I said Power when we had none. I'm glad to be working with my FC's and BC's, also my co-HC has truly been like my other half (I'd be lost without her). So things are well at EFY since we now have power and I am still with powerful people.

Tuesday Awesomeness

Hey everyone, EFY is amazing! It is the second day of the first session here. I am currently off from work since I was on call last night. Which gives me the opportunity to communicate with you all. I haven't had any big health needs yet but like I said it is the second day. I have had the opportunity to attend a few lessons on goal setting and the Session Director is simply amazing. Oh and my partner is also amazing, I would totally be lost without her, I am so glad she is here. We are having so much fun together. Nothing too specific to mention quite yet but at least all is going well.
