There are moments when I wish the world would just stop for me. Just stop, so when I came home, things would be as I remembered. Then there are other days when I know that people will have changed in different ways, or maybe it will feel as if they haven’t changed a bit. No matter what, I think of it now, and I know that when I come home I am bound to be frustrated. I am destined to have my heart broken, but that is the choice I have made. Europe has changed us all so much, whether we see it or not, and that is the scariest thing of all, that we simply go on with our lives and never see the difference in us from two and a half months ago until now. I don’t always know who I am anymore, but I have faith that God will give me guidance in my last weeks in Rome and upon my return. These last five are goign to fly, and there is so much to do, but this is what I have chosen, this is what I shall do, and I only intend to succeed.

I am praying for you … and if you choose, please pray for me to have faith. I am confident that the rest will follow in time.

Hey everyone! I am currently in Budapest, Hungary right now, with a silly Hungarian keyboard (the z and the y are switched, and the numbers go 0123456789öüó, I cannot find the apostrophe and thus cannot make contractions, and the punctuation is wonky). Anyway, I just wanted to check in, to inform all that Budapest is lovely (but cold!). Barcelona was gorgeous as well, and I got to visit a good friend from school who I may not see until next September when school starts up again. I am almost entertaining making another trip out to Barcelona, but I just do not know if I have the time. If not, it was fun. I leave tomorrow for Berlin, and that completes my trip. I am excited but nervous, because that is the first time this trip when I will actually be alone. In Budapest, I got to hang out with my amazing friend Sophia. So far … this week has been awesome.

Also, please pray for me to find a church in Rome. I know I only have 6 weeks left, but I realized how much I miss the fellowship. If there is anything you would like me to pray for you for, please let me know. Anyway, I must now go to pack, because I depart the hostel at 10 AM for the airport, and it is about a quarter past midnight. Did I mention that the wine here is good?
