My life so far!

Extracts from this document...


I was born in Manchester, England in September 1989. I had Emma as my new sister and Joel my brother. I was Martin and Jennifer's last child. My parents and siblings were all Christians and I would be brought up with Christianity being my foundation. My first memories are vague and have had to be reinforced by photographs. Manchester is a blank to me as I, along with my family moved to Inverness, Scotland soon after I was born. The primary reason for this was because my Dad's company was opening a new branch and wanted him to head it up. I was only just five when we left and therefore don't have the same recollection of Scotland as my brother and sister do but I do know it was a good place to start life. My only vivid memory is snow, lots of snow. Sledding and making snow-men and angels. Happy memories of a happy childhood. ...read more.


But that was it, we were off. We were being sent out with the support of our church, to go and "do" whatever we found to do. There was no plan, there was no map, we just went. The nasally voice saying "Welcome to Guatemala" as we landed invited a sigh of relief after an eighteen hour flight. This relief however did not last for long. After sweating our way through hectic city traffic we arrived at what would be our new house. It was filthy; our house that is. The windows had been left open for months and despite a promise of it being cleaned before our arrival bur there was no such evidence of it. Everything was black, the 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom house was covered with volcanic dust from the ever puffing volcanoes near by. First impressions always seem silly years later but first impressions are all you have in the beginning and I'm sure the words "big mistake" were creeping in and out of our rooms that night. ...read more.


I moved into a big room with an en-suite. It was and is luxurious but still all this hasn't made living here easy. Material things never do in the long run, they are only temporary highs. The only reason I have managed to live here and stay sane is because of my best friend; Jesus. It sounds bizarre to lots of people that I depend on a God that I cannot see but doesn't everyone depend on oxygen even though we can't see it. In conclusion to all I have written, I am still here, in Tecpan. I am studying for my GCSE's and I will travel back to England to attempt my exams in May and June of 2005. My life is already full of memories and I will collect more over the years but there's more than memories on my mind. There is the future; my future. My dreams, my ambitions and my walk with God. I know without God I would have no auto-biography, but with him I can continue to live it. ...read more.
