Recycled Rice

Nepal: Made of recycled rice bags :)
We were the last to arrive at camp last night.  We ventured in around 10:30 while some poeple had already been there for two hours! The GPS (Sandy Carmen) had us doing circles and driving 99 miles back the way we came. What was she smoking? I don't know haha. The biggest reason we were so late was because we stopped to go the bathroom at least 5 times and each stop wasted about half an hour. We would tell each other how bad we had to pee on a scale of 1-10 and once 3 people got above 7.5 we would stop. One time Riley got all the way up to 12 out of 10 and we straight up had to stop on the side of the road and pull out the good and faithful toilet paper roll. Fun. 

Then we got miserably lost once we reached seaside trying ot find G street. Every 5 minutes we would recite the alphabet to try to figure out where we were.  We had burping contests (Riley won), we drove through a rainstorm, and we all sang epic worship songs. It was one of the best roadtrips I've had in quite sometime.

Today was great, we shopped around Seaside, spent some time at the beach, and then night beach activities until bed. They ran out of beds when we got in last night, so Jessi and I had to share a small lower bunk. It was quite hilarious and we had a lot of laughs :) I've been eating lots of crap food, not helping my diet, but oh well, it was just one weekend. I'll be good again once I get home haha.

This weekend I experienced God's love. The beautiful earth he has created. The beautiful people he has put in it. The beautiful experiences he gives us. All because of how much he loves us.

John 15:12-13
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
