|Cowboy Hat is a KY Souvenir.|
Brian & I were thrilled that Ky decided to go. We knew it would round out some of her qualifications on the college applications, but more importantly we knew that serving can by a life-changing experience. However, we were also nervous about how she would handle such a new, and often, emotionally trying experience. We had little reason to worry because Kylie did great! She came home excited to share stories about the people she met, all the work she accomplished and how much she'd learned about herself.
The day after Kylie came home, she woke up to go to church, and she even made Therin get out of bed and go. This was quite a change from just a week prior. After the service, she tracked down Pastor Patrick so she could talk to him about getting baptized.

Kylie will be the first to admit that she still has a lot of questions about Christianity and what she believes, but the coolest part about her experience is that it has encouraged her to take an initiative. She's reading through Mark, meeting with mentors and looking forward to a study that will hopefully answer some of her questions. Brian & I are very proud of her.
