Hello world!

September 14, 2008

I’m starting this blog for Mom because her baby girl (me) is moving to the Bronx on Wednesday as a missionary with LAMP (Lay Apostolic Ministries with the Poor).  LAMP is a Catholic lay missionary association that serves among the materially poor with an emphasis on evangelization.  (feel free to Google them)  I’ll be living with the Blessed Sacrament and other women missionaries in the Prayer House, an old Dominican convent, in the Northeast? Bronx.  I won’t have a permanent ministry went I first get there but hopefully will get established soon doing crisis pregnancy counseling or serving at a Madonna House (a home for pregnant women and their children).  I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to live in community, grow in holiness, and build the kingdom of God as I continue my discernment of the Lord’s plan for me.  It’s so much more than I had even asked Him for during this time in my life.

My apologies to those whom I didn’t get the chance to visit before moving.  I miss you and love you.  Comment!!!  I hope to update this blog at least weekly and to add some pictures soon.

I appreciate your prayers and warm wishes!

In the beating hearts of Jesus and Mary,

Emma

    Emma,
    I am so excited for your new journey! You are starting something wonderful, I’m sure, and I will be reading this blog along with your mother to “check in on you”. Best of luck.

    Love,
