"A mind is a terrible thing to waste"

"It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well."
--Renee Descartes

Today I spent the majority of the day at a Rotary sponsored project, CAAP--Central Support to Professional Learning. It was very informative and spiritually rejuvenating. This project is for teenagers ages 15--17 years old. The determination of these kids to be successful against the odds is truly inspiring!


  1. I love the pics made at the school!

  2. You would love these children! They are so full of motivation to be better and leave their communities better than they found them!

  3. Crystal! I'm so glad you're enjoying Brasil! Jenn sent me the link to your blog and I'm enjoying reading the entries. I'm so proud of you! Keep representing us (Americans) well! Love ya and take care!

  4. Ola A-Train,

    It is so good to hear from you! I am having a great time here. They love us(Americans) and especially our president! Love you and I know you are keeping me in your prayers!
