Well with the struggles I have had with DJ I wanted to comment on something positive. Ryan just returned from his summer mission trip. He was in Las Vegas in 114 degree heat, working at a rescue mission, helping to do some remodeling of the thrift shop attached to it, and stocking shelves at the food bank and a number of other activities. He returned with a new self confidence and wonderful stories about the great people working with the homeless and poor there. And best of all, Ryan was brought up front and used as an example of a super fund raiser; most of the kids were selling lollipops for a dollar each; Ryan went before two large adult groups and did an oral presentation of what he would be doing. He raised enough money for his own trip, and got enough excess to help out others in the group. This mama is so proud I feel like my buttons are going to pop.
