As I sit here at my laptop writing this entry, I look out my window and gaze upon a full moon. I have looked out my window every night since being here and have never seen a sight such as this. A beautiful end to a beautiful day. Today, March 1, 2007, ... Read more >

I look at my blog and realize it has been way too long since I’ve made an entry. Since I wrote last, there have been so many wonderful experiences that I’d love to recount with you. There was the soccer game last week that was an absolute blast, the house ... Read more >

The opportunity bug

It has been about one month since I said bye to my family at Cincinnati's airport. For some reason, though, it feels as though I have been in Wales for much longer. As each day passes it seems as though I'm getting more adjusted to this style of living.... Read more >

A simple smile

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 13 Feb 2007 | Views [782]

Hey everyone! Before I hit the hay I just wanted to jot down this quick reflection of the night. I went to my second meeting of the Christian Union and heard a guy (his name was confusing to pronounce) speak about the resurrection of Christ. But before ... Read more >

“Why are you going to Amsterdam?”

NETHERLANDS | Thursday, 8 Feb 2007 | Views [2224] | Comments [3]

I got posed this question many times before arriving in Amsterdam. I prefaced each response I gave with a smile and a laugh. You see, there are a few factoids about the city that I wasn’t aware of before signing up for the trip. Fact #1: Amsterdam is ... Read more >

Have I been here 8 days or 8 months? Within the span of one week and one day, I have witnessed God move in remarkable ways. It is amazing to think that God had my whole experience planned out for me even before I got here. The people I’m meeting, places ... Read more >
