This week has flew by. After just a short weekend last weekend, we got back into our original routine of the School this week. We studied the subject of Abortion by going through the program, “The Choice Project”. We were also able to get back to our service activities, although the snow put a slight damper on our ability to do our normal service. A lot of our service this week consisted of shoveling. A lot of which I wasn’t able to take part in due to a bout with bronchitis.
Coming back, I was exhausted. My roommates can testify to my 7:30 pm bedtime on Sunday. Monday morning, I woke up in a fog ready to take on the snowy week ahead. As mentioned, we went through “The Choice Project” curriculum. Though it may be an unpopular statement, I have to say right off the bat that I value human life and human life starts at conception. This week we learned Gods heart for the innocent and how much he hates the shedding of innocent blood. Abortion is the largest genocide in the history of the world. With millions of babies killed yearly, it is hard not to have mercy for these innocent human lives. I think the main thing I learned this week was that it is not the Woman’s choice to make because it is not the woman’s body. The moment of conception, a new DNA is created, therefore, a new life. One that can never be duplicated. Abortion is now an issue that is very close to my heart. I pray for everyone who may have to make a decision such as this. I pray for all who may have already made that decision that there is conviction and most of all, healing. I pray for the ending of Abortion.
With all that said, I know I may have made some enemies and I apologize if I offended any. I don’t apologize for my stance for life, however.
I learned an awful lot this week and I am so grateful for the education I am receiving. I’m also thankful for my ability to serve the community. This week, at Campus Life at Union High School, I was able to connect with some amazing students and grow in my relationship with them. I’m sure going to miss them when we leave in January.
Speaking of, our flights have officially been purchased! I leave for Guatemala January 2nd at 5:30am. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. It will be a journey of a lifetime.
Anyway, I am staying home this weekend to be with my brother who is home until Sunday. It is also nice to relax and spend time with my loving parents. I’m so blessed to have grown up in a home such as this. I hope everyone also has a wonderful weekend. Sending my love to everyone all over the globe! 🙂
