I've become very good at neglecting my blog, i hope it changes.

Here is a major highlight of my summer that I feel compelled to share.

Earlier this month I became involved in a local ministry that focuses on the youth in underprivileged areas of Placentia, California. This experience really touched my heart.
The ministry pretty much consists of loving people who devote their time to be a mentor to kids. We hold fun events for them like, bible studies, trips to the beach, movie nights, and tutoring during the school year-all while trying to raise money to make a difference in the neighborhood which is slowly being rid of drugs and alcohol exposure to the youth. A lot of the kids I encountered on this new endeavor welcomed me with open arms and smiles. Its something I definitely see myself getting more involved in the future. Below are some photographs of a water day that we had during this summer.
