It's been a while.
Here's the short version: I've been serving at the shelter in Baja California for three years. I am taking a break from that ministry to attend a small bible institute in Ensenada. My main purpose for being here is to seek God's will in what to do next. It is a more complicated situation than that but those are the basics.
Art-wise, things have been good in bad. Good in that I have not lacked for client work and have been blessed with all that I've needed thus far, Gracias a Dios. Bad in that I've had very little time for personal work, and when I do get time I am crippled by perfectionism and fear of failure, old friends that have gotten closer over the years. It feels like unless it's a client piece with a close deadline, I can't seem to get anything done.
One way or another I plan to stay in Baja, one way or another I want to serve in ministry, yet one way or another I must get this art rolling again. I've plateaued.
I hope to have better news by June or July, I'll be out of the school and God willing will have a direction to go in.
That's it in a nutshell, the shelter has been an amazing place to serve in. I love that ministry, I love the families in it, but whether that means I should be a part of it, I do not know. I pray for answers.
Oh, and I'm building a house in this town of San Vicente, it is coming along but missing a roof still.
And electricity, decent water, septic, windows, doors, fence, etc. But the view is incredible and the neighbors are all people I know and love. Can't wait to begin a life there.
Dios les bendiga
