Weekend Reading

Happy Weekend!

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! Not much going on here which is what I love on Saturdays. I found two seasons of Vampire Diaries - that's 44 episodes - for 80 pesos in the market! Less than $2!! Ok, yes, it is pirated and totally poor quality but very much worth it. At these DVD stands you have to dig through piles and piles of DVDs but you can truly find some gems. But at the same time, it's usually a two-pack and I always want one of the movies but not the other. Like I would love to watch the Hobbit 2 but not the Filipino movie, Born to Love You. How do those go together at all??

Anyways, as always my fellow YASCers are sharing their amazing adventures and you should check them out below!

Keri took a bit of a detour from her usual work in Hawstown, South Africa and attended HOPE Africa's staff retreat.

Carlin expresses the importance of building a community while sharing her ministry with Living Together.

Will P. updates us on a church in Cuba working in sustainable agriculture.

Julie explains her new normal in Haiti which I find some of it to be similar to my life.

Becky illustrates her recent trip to Costa Rica due to visa issues. Not a bad consequence for overstaying her visa in Honduras!

Rachel recounts her recent mission trip into the interior of Panama with high school seniors.

Claire has had a breakthrough in understanding.

Hannah shares a long overdue photo journal.

Katie touches upon her recent tour of the Hong Kong Film Archive.

I give a big thanks to Hannah for sharing Paul M. Spelling's blog. He's not a YASCer but still a young adult missionary in Costa Rica who Hannah recently met on her visit. His blog posts are amazing meditations about faith and spirituality and our role in it all. His recent series is about breaking down the false walls that divide people. The first week reflects upon language.

Thanks for reading!
