Well we all made it back yesterday safe and sound. I would like to apologize for not having updates Wednesday -Friday, we were really busy and did not have the energy required to post at the end of the day. I hope to have summaries of the missing days up soon.

Bill is hard to believe we spent a whole week in the Big Apple. Just like last year time just flew by and before we knew it, we were back in Morgantown. On the ride back with Skye, Katy, Matt, Mandy, and myself we spent the durations of the trip "debrieffing" and sharing our experiences with each other and Skye's parents(I am sure this will make you proud Rick). I am looking forward to telling my parents all about the trip. Also, I think God has used the 'trekking' experience to make me more bold and relient on God so I am excited to use these gifts in God's ministry for my life.

I did not realize how much the trip to NYC effected me until I went to chuch yesturday. I was a little tired anyway, but as soon as the first person asked me all of the emotions that I experienced this past week hit me like a ton of bricks. I was so overwhelmed that I had to find a solitary place to reflect and thank God for the wonderful experiences in NYC. Afterwords my emotions took so much energy out of me that I was not even able to speak right...actually I am still having trouble today.

God has shown me a lot last week. He gave me new friends, strengthened relationships with old ones, helped me be a blessing to someone who at the same time blessed me, and is continually teaching me things everyday. While in NY I had this fear in the church we stayed at (I will not share why), but after a lot of prayer and giving into God's power I am realizing I have nothing to fear. God has covered me with his protection, and the fear I had has been melting away a little at time everyday.

I really can not express in words how much this trip meant to me or even other things I have learned. I stumble over words when trying to tell someone about it, but somehow they can sense the impact the trip has done in me. All I can say now is thank you to all who supported us in helping us make a difference in NYC. It was an unexpressionable experience that I know none of us will ever forget.
