When we booked our trip to Easter Island, we knew we wouldn't have very much time there. Flights to and from the island only happen once a day and since we waited until we arrived in Chile to plan our trip, our choices were very limited.

My last few posts have been few and far between. While I am sorry for that, there is definitely a reason behind it. These past couple of weeks have been non-stop and it's not going to be slowing down anytime soon. In the few off days we had before Easter Island, about half of our group took two day trips to Valparaíso, Viña del Mar, and Isla Negra. This is the saga of an exhausting yet rewarding 48 hours.

Last week, I stood in an auditorium and watched as over 15,000 young people pledged to passionately seek the opportunities presented by God, and I wish that every single person who ever underestimated me for my age had been there to see it.
