I have developed an incredible respect for high school teachers and administrators--it's still strange being on the "other side" of things, sometimes. The amount of work that goes on behind the scenes is astounding. The faculty and administration here appear to be tireless, which provides daily inspiration for me to increase my efforts.It has been a struggle sometimes to bring enthusiasm to community life because I feel so drained from ministry, but Colleen, Brit, Amy, and Xochitl have been very supportive and understanding. Everyone is working hard and we have been pretty good about responding to each other's needs. Detroit itself is amazing! It is a fascinating city with great people and a unique atmosphere. I can already see why so many volunteers have stayed in the area after their service year. Keep us in your prayers.
