Pics, Struggles and Prayer

click image to biggie-size
Here are just a few scenes from this trimester at the youth leadership institute in Buenos Aires... learning, personal formation, celebrations and sharing life together. It is definitely not a boring place to be.

Over the next 3 weeks there will be a more than normal amount of work and stress due to the confluence of 3  milestones:
  1. End of trimester exams and projects (now until May 19)
  2. Interviews of prospective students for next trimester (starts May 30)
  3. A 3-day "Amazing Race/Survivor" sort of retreat for students (May 20-22)
We have also had a lot of students who are struggling with tough emotional, physical, work and family related issues. Our role as spiritual directors is to accompany, encourage and love them thru these times. It is a privilege to serve these dedicated youth workers in this way and, as you can imagine, it is also a significant burden. 

Please pray for us and for them during the next 3 weeks. We need it.
