Update: Finally!

    Alright folks. I did say life was going to get busy, but I had no clue how right *that* was.
Soooo here is the deal.
I am now a volunteer firefighter/EMT with the Santa Fe Fire Department, Edgewood District. I got a job at Wal Mart, (for anyone who hasn't seen me there already), and am back in school, working toward A/EMT-- (Advanced EMT) to be certified in the national registry. Basically, that means that anywhere I go in the states, I would be qualified to get a paying EMS job with a service or Fire Department. As things stand right now, I am simply volunteering in order to get some needed skills and real-life experience for the future in my medical career.
I am SO thankful for how God is leading me and opening doors in this field, and I am set in my goal to help spread the gospel of Christ through this job.
A cool perk of the EVFD (Edgewood Volunteer Fire District) is the group of dedicated men and women I have the pleasure of serving alongside. I could not have asked for a more professional group to begin my career with.
Just recently I became certified with Santa Fe, and tonight got fitted with bunker gear, which is what you see firemen in all the time. I got the works, from the helmet down to the boots.

Today the word was ladder drilling, and we worked everything from extension ladders to Roof hooks and everything in between. 

I am going to turn in pretty quick here, but I will be back soon to post about my Front Sight trip and whatever else I left off from my post months ago...

                                                                        A final word.

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men. 
--Colossians 3:23
