A number of years ago before I sponsored my first kid I signed up with Compassion International for their survival program. It was something I could do to help out and it wasn’t going to be to hard on my finances. Every so often they send me a photo of the month of a baby and mother who were helped out by the program and it warms my heart. It was created to help moms from the very beginning of the journey to deliver a healthy baby that would survive its first couple years and it begins helping the baby while its still in the womb. Thousands of babies have been born thanks to the wonderful work the survival program workers do.
We are usually so busy with life that it can be a blessing to have forced down time to refuel and do the things you usually can’t do when things are normal. Spend time enjoying your family, do those craft projects, FaceTime with friends, play some board or card games. Enjoy the simple things in life and stay healthy!
Soon I will be going back to Guatemala for the fourth time and I am so excited. We are going with a different group than we usually go with. This last year I was able to finally use my ministry fund money to buy a lot of stuff for the organization that we go down and help so I think this year will be even more awesome than previous years before this one. I want to thank you for reading this blog and taking the time to come to believers voyage to see what I have to say. I hope we can continue to grow together and you can continue to help me change the world, one person at a time… God bless and shine bright! I’m sure I’ll post some pictures and such as the Guatemala trip happens.
I honestly think this last year was the best, I’m sure I had some negative times in it and was angry during part of it, but I can only remember the great positive times I had this year! For my birthday, I got to go to Maryland for the first time to visit my best college friends ever (I literally do consider them family), I did not get a promotion I applied for at work but ended up doing the job for three months, got to tell a joke of the day to the people in my section I work for and make people laugh. It’s been a great time.
I am excited to see what 2020 brings and maybe it’ll bring me success in getting a house and maybe a girlfriend/wife 🙂 haha but I’m content with where I’m at right now I think.
Thank you all who follow this blog still even though I don’t often post on it anymore. I am sorry I don’t know how those bloggers who get paid do it, I am just not that interesting and don’t have that much interesting things to write about. I did write a book recently and will try to add segments of it here though so you have something to read. Plus, I want to add more sections to the book which means I want to start uploading more blog posts about different topics and life lessons I have learned and am continuing to learn, so any ideas would be helpful!! 🙂 God bless and smile bright!!
Towards the end of last year, my aunt had passed away due to a disease called “HHT” (learn more about this from curehht.org) and so our family has been busy getting checked out ourselves (it’s hereditary). It’s depressing for me because of the fact that this thing that we learned we could have within us could possibly kill us in a moments notice.
I took on ordering supplies and doing the schedule at my part-time job, luckily we have a new lead to do the ordering supplies, but I’ve continued doing the scheduling. Since the company is pulling the purse strings tighter, we have been cut in hours across the board for Hospitality, so I’ve cut myself back to 4 hours a week. This is good in one instance because it allows me to keep my apartment clean, do more videos for my youtube show and maybe even post on here more often.
I switched back to my alma mater for my full-time job and it’s been hard going as good as I used to as a part-timer. But I’m still kicking!!
