Back in the late 90’s, when I was in college and Blink-182 was just hitting main stream, “pop” punk rock was the greatest music known to man…in my opinion. From NOFX to Pennywise to MXPX, I loved it all. The Warped Tour was the greatest show on earth. All was good in the music world.

“I still don’t understand why you decided to work for FOCUS for two years before applying to medical school.”

This is the question that I kept getting from many people after I decided to become a FOCUS missionary. “Medical school is long and very expensive,” many would say, “so why would you want to wait an extra two years to begin?” Some people advised me to look for an engineering job since I studied biomedical engineering at the University of Virginia. “That way, you could have some extra money to go towards medical school tuition…especially if you like math and science so much. I just don’t get the connection between FOCUS and medical school.”

Dear Missionaries of the World and Laborers for the Gospel,

One of the most visible aspects of Lent is how it begins: Ash Wednesday. This is the day we all see who is getting ready to enter into the season of Lent by spotting who has ash on their forehead. This guide will help you identify the different types of ashes you may encounter.
