Bake Trip to Mission Trip

Hello world of 321gcm! I am back! Sorry I haven’t been updating as much as I should have. As you all know, Gigi, Annika, and I had a bake sale at City Market. It was a huge success, and we made over six-hundred dollars. I am so happy and proud that the bake sale attracted so many people. We also got so many people from the community, from our schools, and from the church bake for this event. I would like to thank everyone from the church, community, and from the SWOS school who baked and brought the goods.

This morning, my mom and I went to the post office, and finally renewed my passport, so I am all ready to go to Haiti! Haha, not really. There are so many other things that I need to do in order to actually be ready to go to Haiti that I can’t even count!

I’m actually kind of scared to go to Haiti. I don’t know the language, there’s cholera, and other diseases that I need to be prepared for. I want to go to Haiti. When I was first doing the application for the program, I never actually thought about all the things that are going on in the world, like the political conflict in Spain.

I absolutely love that I was chosen for this program. I know that Gigi and Annika might be feeling nervous as I am. I even though I have butterflies in my stomach, I am committed to this program.

When I was little, my dream was to make a difference in the world, and now I can finally do that.  I won’t be doing it alone. I will have so many friends and the support of my family. We as a group in this program will be helping kids who live in extreme poverty, have no electricity, have no clean water, and little shelter. I hope that I can be of service to the kids at St. Paul’s School, and in doing so, earn their respect and trust. Thank you for supporting our cause and getting us closer to our goals.

Treats for Peeps

Come one, come all!

Saturday October 7th, 9:00 a.m, Gigi Baxstrom, Annika Lewis, and Maya LaMunyon will be selling baked goods at the North Entrance of City Market starting at 9:00. The treats for all the peeps will include, Maya’s Great-Grandma’s peanut-butter cookie recipe, her dad’s favorite gingersnap cookie recipe, and some cranberry-orange biscotti, so bring your tea, or coffee, and the sugar and cream. Lots of people from the St. Barnabas Congregation will be hard at work baking this week. The girls can’t wait to see what treats they bring. If you missed the craft sale at St. Barnabas, then you’re in luck because there will be more crafts on Saturday, too.

Maya would like to thank everyone in the St. Barnabas Episcopal Church congregation who signed up to bake and offered to support their cause, it means a lot to the three girls. If you decide to skip breakfast on Saturday October 7th, stop by the North Entrance of City Market at 9:00 a.m for some tasty treats made by the St. Barnabas Congregation as well as the three girls.
