I’m back in Colorado now incase you didn’t know, thanks for reading peoples
Okay so today is the official 2 month mark, and I only have 2 days left. Its been a wild adventure and I will never forget the people I met, the places I saw, and the lessons I learned. I want to thank everyone who has kept up on my blog all this time, that meant a lot to me. I can’t wait to get back to Colorado to see everyone and have an awesome last month of summer. Call me next week everyone so we hang out. I’m spending my last Sunday here going to Times Square Church with Jason and then we are gonna go shopping for some clothes for him.
Just because, here is a list of everywhere I have been this summer.
Obviously, The Bowery
All Around Soho
The Empire State Building
South Street Sea Port
The Statue Of Liberty
Orangeburg South Carolina
Great Neck Long Island
Knickerbocker Park in Brooklyn
Madison Square Garden
Wow that was more than I thought
Last night I went out with the lovely group here from Mizzou. We went around the city and eventually made it to the empire state building. Picture is below, the red circle is where I live. I will be chillin with my family in less than twelve hours!!!!!!!!!
Time has been flying! Especially now that July 14th is coming up. Family is coming up this weekend for my cousin Josh’s wedding, so I am really excited to get to hang out with my mom, sister & pep pep.
There is a cool group in from Mizzou this week, later they are taking me out to see the Empire State Building, which is very nice of them because they are buying me a ticket to go up to the top. However, I have to admit I like the high school groups more. They are more excited about doing things in groups, college kids kinda like to do their own thing and be independent all the time.
I guess I sort of got a promotion too, I am now the director of outreach for the rest of the time that I’m here because the old director is not going to be working for the Bowery anymore. I can’t wait to get back and see everyone, I’m even starting to miss Dan Smith.
Bye for now, talk to me on FBook
P.S. here is a great song that is brand spanking new

I Did A Long Post With A Lot Of Pictures… Here
Dear King Of Pop,
As longs as music exists, your art, and your influence will never be forgotten for a moment. My prayers go out to your kids and family. I don’t know how many hours I spent listening to you, watching you dance, and trying to impress girls moonwalking. All the music I listen to, released even today, is in no way lacking roots in your art. RIP MJ
The trip to Florida was great! Paul and Mandy Yoder and some great people and they blessed us soooo much. We ate great all week long and got to relax a ton. But I now know I would never ever live in Florida, TOO HOT!!!!!!!
The best part of the trip was when Wilmon (the other driver here at the Bowery) got to branch off from the path to see his family members that he hasn’t seen in over a year. They did not even know if he was alive or not. Here is a quick version of his story:
One year ago, on June 6th, the police showed up to raid Wilmon’s house. Him and his buddy had enough drugs in there to put them in jail for 10-15 years. Turns out the search warrant the police tried to use had a typo, the address was one number off. So he fled to New York City with a buddy and after a falling out with aforementioned buddy, he ended up at the Bowery. One year later, Wilmon is a man of God. He loves to say that he used to drive for the devil (drug trafficking), now he drives for Jesus. Some pictures of him and his family are below.
Now I’m back at the Bowery, and I only have 20 days left until I come back to Colorado. Time has flown and its been incredible. Sad news here at the Bowery, Abraham (pictured in an earlier post) had to be put down because of a birth defect in his brain that was making him sick.
One quick person I would love you guys to pray for is Jason. He is semi new at the Bowery and has never really understood what it means to be a follower of Christ. But wow is the Lord drawing him in. I have rarely seen someone so curious about Jesus and the Word. Pray that he can be patient and understand that it takes time to gain wisdom about the Lord. Pray that the Lord continues to draw him in, and pray that he can have the strength to stick with it. He actually just came to the door, thats kind scary.
