"I left Belize when I was 12 or 13, just as all my friends were getting swept up into gangs. The gangs would get kids to do the dirty work, because they knew the kids wouldn’t go to jail. I actually have an old photograph of the group of friends I used to hang out with— there were seven us. After I came to America, they were all killed in the exact order that they were standing in that photograph."

Love this blog.

"I found a ladybug, a beetle, and a little tiny bug that I don’t know.""So what advice would you give to other bug collectors?""You have to be really focused and find a rock that is big but not too big and you lift it up and if there’s not any bugs you put it back down. But if there is a bug and you like it, you put it in your bug jar. But if you don’t like it you put it back and put the rock back down."

This morning my car wouldn’t start. We were already running a little behind. Heidi has to catch the bus no later than 7:30am and it was 7:24am. It takes 3 minutes to get there if both lights are green. I tried starting it like 4 times and nothing. I was thinking I may have to call one of Heidi’s friends to pick her up and I’ll have to work from home….Then call my dad to come look at my car. I let it sit for a minute and prayed. “Lord, we have to get to school and work on time and I need You to please make this car start when I turn the key. In Jesus’ name, amen.” Heidi echoed, “Amen.”

I turned the key and it fired up like nothing was wrong! Haha! Heidi and I looked at each other and smiled. We thanked God and drove off to the bus stop.

It’s sad but I was a little surprised when the car actually started. It really put my faith into perspective. I know He’s able but sometimes I don’t think He WILL. It’s easy to tell other people to trust God. But we find out if we can “practice what we preach” in situations like this. It made me really happy that Heidi could see God come through for us. It shows her that she can trust God for all of her needs. It certainly strengthened my faith, too! :)
