Photo Journaling Urban Passage

I’m running out the door to Spanish class, but in the meantime, here are some photos (thanks to Anna and Elaine!) from Urban Passage.

It was an incredibly challenging, hard, grateful, and fun time with a group of 43 strangers, serving in Chicago and later traveling to the north woods of Wisconsin. More on that later. Enjoy the photos!

For those who have been praying for this time of transition for me, you don’t know what your prayers have meant. The Lord has been so faithful and encouraging, even with the emotional shock of living in a new situation with all new people. Even in waiting for deep relationships to take root, the promises and love of Christ has kept me strong. And knowing how many people care, support, and are praying for me has been such a blessing, especially in the lonelier times – especially on Passage, when I had no outside communication.

Have a beautiful Thursday, friends. I’m almost late for Spanish.
