Puppies and Trains

A lot of things have gone down lately.

Today I found a puppy. It was walking on the rez with its seriously malnourished mom, looking for food and I fell in love with it. When its mom walked away and it laid down and looked at me, I couldn't help myself. I decided I would embrace potential diseases to save it from imminent death (puppies have that effect on me). So I missed the meeting I had come down for for the sake of a puppy that I most likely can't keep. Welcome to my life. (She is soooo cute though!)

In other news, we had a seriously awesome weekend with our high school girls in Phoenix. I prayed for 10 girls to come and on the day of the retreat 10 girls climbed into our van. The weekend was filled with great talks, dance parties, train tours ("train museum" ended up as a seriously cooler outing than we had counted on. While we were just hoping we could find a way to spend the afternoon and hopefully spin it as awesome, it actually turned out to be the most memorable part of the weekend!), and a lot of girlie bonding time.

I think a lot of great seeds were planted as we explained what it means to guard your heart, mind and soul in Christ Jesus.

And one of the COOLEST parts of the weekend was that my friend Cassie came to lead worship for us. 5 years ago Cassie and I were strangers as we boarded a plane for a semester in Spain. There we spent five months doing ministry together, and as I walked away I thought to myself, "I'll probably never go visit her in Arizona. It is way too far away!" Well God had other plans and 5 years after we met we were doing ministry together again, this time with my Apache students in, you guessed it, Arizona. God has the coolest way of making things come around in a way we never would have imagined!

So here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure. I love you all (and I wish you would keep my cute puppy).

What a fantastic weekend :) Thanks for all of your prayers!
