My name’s Sarah and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary, returning for a 2nd year, from Alexandria, VA.
It’s good to feel your emotions (even if that means you cry more).
My Marian group that lasted 12 hours! Our normal 2 hour Marian group turned into a sleepover, then we got Dunkin in the morning, and painted affirmations on rocks with each other.
Throughout this year I’ve grown the most in self-knowledge especially in terms of my emotions. I remember at the beginning of the year being confused when people told me to be gentle toward myself and my emotions. Slowly I have realized how I need to be as merciful to myself as I am to my friends on the street. The more I have allowed myself to feel my emotions, the more I have grown in freedom, humility, and self-knowledge.
I’m a first year missionary returning for a second year, originally from Alexandria, VA. I lived in Philadelphia the past 5 years while I went to Drexel University and got my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Biomedical Engineering. For fun, I like to learn new crafts, swim, play sports, and go to the beach.
