Excuses, excuses!!!!!

I have been home a week, and have not had much to say about my trip. But as events unfold at home, I am running into some new experiences. No one seems to understand what I am experiencing, especially not my family, who frankly hoped I would come home much happier and "higher". Thankfully, John Lambert at Mission Minded understands. Sounds like an excuse, but it is real.

I'll keep praying for you in this time of transition. Keep exploring your feelings and reactions, with God, alone, and with others who have "been there." Let the Deacons know if we can be of assistance. As a member of the Grief ministry, I'd be happy to talk with you, about any grief and loss feelings you may have. -- Jenni Wood, Fremont Deacon.

Perhaps your reaction is the real purpose of the trip, Michael, the transforming part. It seems this happens again and again with members of youth groups who journey every summer to Mexico.
