My most valuable possession? I've been asked this question before, and I usually respond with pictures, my artwork, or other things that couldn't be replaced. However, after reading the Crucible, I have to say that my salvation is my most precious posetion. People and sercumstances are able to take anything away from you, even your innocentce. But the gift that Jesus gave me when he died to forgive me and paid the ransome for my sins, is what I now hold the most dear.

I've been thinking a lot latley about what God wants me to do with my life. Then i figured, I don't need to worry about what I should do with my life but what God can do with it, if that makes since. Anyway, He has pretty much revealed to me that he wants me to be a vocational missionary. What most christians tend to think is that their ministry is right where they are and that they don't need to go anywhere. If that were so with everybody, how would the gospel get anywhere? I however don't feel like God wants me to stay and witness to those around me forever. He wants me to go "therefore unto all the nations, making disciples of all people." I know that if most Christians are going to stay in america where they are comfortable, there has to be someone that's gotta go overseas to where the gospel hasn't reached yet. Why not me. It's probably going to be hard, I know. But, if that is what He wants me to do than, hey, I'm not about to disobey, Him.

I've learned a lot of awsome stuff this year, like always being prepared to eat a cold lunch if you come to the cafeteria to find the microwave locked up in the cheer room, or that fencecups really hurt your fingers after you've been doing them for over 45 minutes straight. However, one of the most important things I've learned this year is how to make use of the marvelous and terribly clever invention known as the flashdrive. I was forced to purchase one for Mrs. Fernandez's class to do a powerpoint, and now I am unlocking their true potential for the first time. I feel very behind technologically because everyone else had already had one for 100 years before I'd even heard of them. I guess that's what I get for growing up old school.
