My Journal

Friday, 27th :
Finally got Harry Potter and watched it with some friends. It's now 9:30 pm and I don't feel so well. I go to Western Samoa at 8 am in the morning. I take my temperature three times and it keeps saying 99.7. What? How can I get sick the night before I go on vacation??! I'm still going. No fever will stop me.

Saturday, 28th :
Early in the morning, I don't feel so well, still. I'm still going. I get to Western Samoa, and I have to wait two hours until Jaime and Philip come in from New Zealand and meet me here. I get hit on by the guy that exchanged my money for me. That was annoying when you have a fever and are sick. So, I go upstairs in the airport and sit at a table and wait. I manage to put my head on the table and be alone for 45 minutes, until a man comes and sits down, saying "You're a pretty girl. I love you". I get up and leave him. Creepy. Then we drive two hours to the other side of the island and finally get to the beach fales when Philip realizes he got the wrong luggage bag. So we head back and stay at a hotel in town. All the while I am sick as a dog. All I want to do is lay down.

Sunday, 29th :
Philip and Jaime go to church and I stay in bed. Overdosing on medicine without realizing it, I feel a little better. Philip and Jaime lose their plane tickets. Jaime and I go back to the fales to check there. Nope. Not there. Come back to hotel and sleep.

Monday, 30th :
I take medicine and we go to sliding rock. The stairs were aweful getting back up and Jaime and I are both sore now because of it. We ate lunch with A friend's mom and headed to the market to get souveniers. We get on the plane to come home and I am still sick. I couldn't sleep last night though, for some reason.

Tuesday, 31st :
I'm still sick and felt like I should tell what my trip to Western Samoa was like.

Going home

I go home in two weeks. A scary, exciting, sad, happy thought. I will never forget this place. I pray I come back some day. Thank you to all who helped me to get to this place. God bless you.

Now, when I get back, I have two weeks to get ready for Harding University in Arkansas. I don't know how I am getting there except for the grace of God. It is expensive, but if that is where God wants me to be He will get me there some how. I miss you all. Thank you for commenting on my pages. I do read them.

I went to a beautiful beach today where mountains shot up out of the ocean. So amazing what God has done with his earth. Philip and Jaime are in New Jealand right now having a nice vacation. And I am watching the girls this week, but Silia has them tonight. I would talk more but I am going to go take care of dinner. Big smiles!

Phew...Well...Vacation Bible School is over. It was a great week I think. The kids were good and the lessons were good.

I finished the 6th Harry Potter book a while ago and some friends down here and I are anticipating the 5th movie and the last and 7th book. We are very into it. I am reading other books now. For instance, A Walk to Remember. I am slowly becoming a reader.

I went with a group of people to a small island called Anuu. It was very pretty and really good snorkeling also. There is a dock you can swim off of. The hike on the island was not very difficult but it was very worth it.

I hope all is well at home. Love you guys!

At the dock to go over to Anuu

Thank You's

Well VBS is over now and I think it went really well. The week over all was good. There was a lectureship the whole week as well. The internet has been down for a while as well on the island, so sorry this is late.
I am through with the 5th Harry Potter. I finished it this morning. I am now starting the 6th. This gives me inner happiness.

I recieved yesterday a few letters from the youth at my home church in the states. I want to tell you all how good that made me feel. But not just them. All of you who have encouraged me and loved me. I want to say thank you. You don't know what it means to me. Thank you.

Now, aside from that. I come home in a month and I will want to spend a lot of time with my family. I want to see my friends as well. I miss everyone so much. I am thinking of you all.
