The beautiful picture below, of the sky, was taken last night. Chris and I were studying for our exam and all the sudden about 9:30 (yes 9:30 at night, it stays light until like stinkin 11 o'clock!) the clouds split and this beautiful array of colors filled the sky. This photo reminds me of how beautiful and passionate God is. It almost put me in a state of trembling and awe that a God of such magnitude could love me, a fallen man that has let him down time and time again.
I went to the market and decided I wasn't going to be hungry for once in my life over here. Some may say I went a little overboard, I say I'm evolving into a camel/cow like behavior, way of thinking. Yup. I'm going to store it inside of me, somewhere, somehow. Ya it's a new theory I'm coming up with. It's almost like the idea of natural selection I believe... I'm not positive, it's something I'm working on.
Tomorrow we are heading to Russia. To be completely honest it's bitter sweet. I have come to love Lithuania and actually grown accustom to the way they do some things. At the same time I know it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to Russia. I'm only the second Powers ever to go to Russia. The first one to ever step foot in Russia was actually a pilot of a U2 spy plane, and he got shot down.. Ya I know pretty bad action. He survived and eventually got sent back to America. Crazy. I feel like a pandsy compared to that... nevertheless I shall go, and I shall conquer. Conquer what you ask? I'm not sure.. but in remembrance of my great uncle, it will be something for the Powers name. Whether that be a Russian waffle, wait that's a Belgium Waffle. Well it'll be something. I'll let you know.
Lithuania was amazing. I've learned a lot here. God has put passion in my life for a lot of things that I can't explain right now. But I'm excited. Be blessed. I miss and love you all.
