Yesterday marked a couple of big things. It was on February 13th last year that Alyssa and I first came to the Mount for our initial meeting to begin the process to enter this program. I remember very vividly how nervous and excited I was, wondering how it would all turn out, not knowing if I'd be able to make it work. A whole year later, and it's crazy to see how fast it has gone, and to see how far I've come.
Last Friday was my last day at SBEC, and it was a great day. I was surprised with bagels and a couple of presents, one of them being a bag handmade by one of the refugees. It's such a nice gift and a wonderful reminder of my time there. Yesterday I began work at my new morning ministry with Emmaus, which includes the soup kitchen, food pantry, a women's advocacy program, and the Kid's Cafe. I'm still with the Kid's Cafe in the afternoons, and I'll split my time between the other three ministries in the mornings as needed. I'm excited to see what the next 6 months will bring, so far I'm enjoying it :)
