And now some questions just for fun:
1. You have 5 Euros you have to spend at TESCO right now… What do you buy? Why?
Lip gloss, gum, and nail polish: I like feeling like a lady and having good breath.
2. Can you recommend a good book?
Love is an Orientation by Andrew Marin and The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism by Richard J. Mouw.
3. Put your iPod on shuffle and press play. What are the first three songs that play? Any special meaning?
Jesus Land by Ben Folds: This song reminds me of summer in Illinois.
Somewhere Only We Know by Keane: No significance; I just like it.
You Made My Dreams by Hall and Oates: Makes me think of being in love and having some iced coffee on a hot summer day with a cute boy named.
4. What are you most excited about for this summer?
Personally I’m excited to have the opportunity to put into practice a lot of the things the Lord has been teaching me over the last few years. I feel like in a lot of ways this summer is a capstone to the last few years and where the Lord has been leading me. Also, I’m looking forward to the camps, meeting the kids and hanging out, hearing their stories, and walking with them as long as the Lord desires.
5. Since this is your first time in Slovakia, what do you like so far?
My favorite thing so far is zmrzlina! (Slovak icecream). It’s delicious; I could eat it all day long. Also, even though this sounds cheesy, the people I’ve met so far. Specifically, the team in Bratislava and how loving and welcoming people have been to me, the “loud American.”
