"Second Chances..." haha
I invited three Rwandan college students to visit the Promise House and talk about the Rwandan culture. The Promise House girls were amazed at the simplicity of life in Rwanda and asked many questions! I showed pictures of people and places in Rwanda, such as the schools, market, houses, and forests. The girls were largely surprised that most televisions in Rwanda has only one channel, pregnant and nonpregnant women often walked 2 hours to the market, and the kitchen in most Rwandan houses is outside. The Rwandan students spoke English very well and enjoyed sharing their culture with new friends!
After the talk, we then took the girls to the Heifer International Museum in Little Rock. I really enjoyed the outing with the girls!

As i was coming up on my teenage years I remember all the girls in my surroundings becoming sexually active. I never understood why they made the choices they did... I use to always say that I was waiting until marriage. Though I didnt know much about why you should wait I just knew that you should. No one ever told me why so here I am just thinking you should wait until marriage to have sex because it is the right thing to do. When I became a freshman in High School I was the only one out of my friends that was a virgin. I started to become very curious about having sex. Still I never acted on my curiousity 1. Because it was the right thing to do and 2. The boys at my school weren't worthy of taking my innocence. I still didnt know why you were suppose to wait for marriage to have sex.. So then I came up with this theory that you were suppose to wait until you found the one you love and trust. Then I met this boy who i would sometimes call my worst nightmare.
For some crazy reason when the nurse told me the test was positive I started crying and smiling at the same time. I cried because I didnt know I was going to do with a baby still being a child myself & I smiled because I knew that I finally had someone to fill that whole in my heart and would alway have someone there for me. During my pregnancy I found Christ and became a whole new person. I also learned that God would forgive me. I must say getting pregnant has been the the best thing that has ever happend to me. Not only because it brought me a beautiful healthy son but because It helped me have a personal relationship with God.. Something everyone needs. Now I know why you should wait until marriage to have sex.. To believe that true love waits, make a commitment to God, yourself, your family, your friends, your future mate, and your future children to a lifetime of purity including sexual abstinence until the day you enter a biblical marriage relationship.
You are not your own; you were bought at a price therefore honor god with your body.1 Corinthians 6:20
I love this smile!! So precious!
