The first two days of Ocean City has been awesome! However the plane ride to project was horrible. The group from Chico and I were suppose to be in Ocean City at 5:45 pm, but didn't show up til 10 PM due to plane delays. I have met so many new people and everyone has been so friendly and open. I was assigned to an impact group. My impact group is a group of guys that I share a room with. Right now, I have three guys in my action group (Jake, Kyle and Elliot), and one more student from UC Davis will come later in project. Our impact group leader (Josh) also lives in the same room with us. I also shared part of my testimony and how God has been working in my life in front of the whole project. I was nervous, but it was so awesome! Right now one of main objectives is to get grow in fellowship with the other students and find a job. Tomorrow we start evangelism training and I am really excited for that! Project has already been awesome and I am already growing in my faith! Here are some pictures from project that I have taken.

Hey guys sorry I have not posted a blog in a while! AH! I have been really busy with school, but lets play a little catchup....

So last night was Chico CRU's last event of the year! It was awesome but kinda sad. We had an awesome barbecue and swim party at the Rystrom's house! Also Steve and Chuck from the Dog House came out and cooked us some delicious hot dogs and chicken sandwiches. Add in the crazy but amazing pineapple salsa; it was one of the best chicken sandwiches and hot dogs I have ever had! Everyone can not forget about Steve Myer's belly flops in the pool last night. I was definitely twittin' that last night ahah! If you have not seen the video check it out in this post!

Project is less than a week and half away and I am very excited but nervous at the same time. I haven't even started packing up my things yet; I need to get on that! I am very excited to see what the Lord has in plan for me this summer and to grow in my faith. Things have been crazy lately just because of finals and school work. I just want to this semester to be done with.

But like I said I am very excited for this summer and this year in Crusade has been awesome!
