These are my daughter's comments yesterday on her MySpace. For those of you that want to keep up on her goings on that don't have MySpace accounts I thought I would post this for you with her permission.
Jenna shared her experience of visiting a garbage slum with me on Monday and I have been impacted by it all week!

oh my lands..i just realized...
i have no summer.=/but i'm totally okay with it. Last night i got to go to a conference. Over 7,000 youth worshiping God.It was incredible!!pictures soon to come.But the past two days have been quite amazing.Ever been to a garbage slum? know what that is? Its literally boxes used to make homes on top of garbage dump. Its insane! Something you cant just look at a picture to understand..you have to see it with your own eyes.Before i left..someone was upset i would change. Honestly this change has been the best thing that's ever happened to me. Learning to live a life that not focused on myself. I'm starting to understand why i was created..and that i was created to make a difference.And finally..ohhh finally...i'm learning to not hold back. All my life i've held things back and it seemed to have bite me in the __ this march...but i learned. Oh did i learn. Its amazing how stupid you can be and Amazing things can always come out of it.Maybe you think i've gone crazy now...maybe i have.haha
Anyways missing quite a few of you. Another month and half. Then we will see where God wants to take me next..Home? Australia?
This daughter of mine is killing me...killing my flesh that is...ouch! It is a good thing =] Of coarse I want her to come home...
but...Kingdom come...will of God be done
God bless her, and keep her, and may Your light shine upon her.
