Times They Are A-Changin'

Man, what a crazy few months. I haven't blogged in so long because I've been overwhelmed by the amount of huge life events I could blog.

I'll give you the higlights:

I graduated from college,

spent 2.5 weeks studying for the board exams for 6-7 hours a day (and went crazy in the process),

celebrated the marriage of my dear friends Jessika and Jericho,

 drove up to the bay, took my boards (to get my RN),  started work at PCC's (Peninsula Covenant Church) Swim & Gym - my favorite summer job,

went to D.C. and Virginia for my housemate Linzy and her now HUSBAND, Dan's wedding,

visited some lovely friends in Maryland (happy birthday Emily!),

worked three weeks of camp,

turned 23 (which involved eating a quail egg,

a surprise sushi/ice skating night,

and a ZAMBONI ride! ),

PASSED my boards,

and tomorrow (actually today, since I've burned the midnight oil writing this post instead of packing) I  drive down to LA, braving CARMAGEDDON (the closing of 10 miles of the 405 freeway all weekend), so I can be ready to leave for Singapore and Cambodia on Tuesday!


The summer's been jam-packed so far, full of life, transition and emotion. I can't wait to see what God does in Cambodia!  It's hard to believe we're leaving in just a few days.  It's hard to miss three whole weeks of camp, as God has been doing some incredible things in the kids here, but I know he's prepared the way for me to go to Cambodia. I've been moved by how God has used so many people to pour out His love in their generosity, kindness and affection. He is so faithful, and he is so good.

Gloria a dios!


  1. Dearest Betsy Still, RN:
    You are amazing. Look at the summer you have had, and it's only halfway done! So much more good stuff that God is bringing along! Can't WAIT, seriously CANT WAIT, to hear the report back of all that God is doing, and will do (through you and your team) in Cambodia and Singapore!
    ...well, if you survive Carmageddon first. ;)


  2. Betsy! What a great post, full of great memories. So proud of you!! Have a wonderful time in Cambodia. You will be in my prayers friend.
